So I’m a stay at home mom with 3 kids. My husband works full time and gets an okay- salary BUT he’s tightened his grip on spending for the past 4 months to be able to save up to go watch the football event overseas. He’s literally obsessed with anything to do with football. He said he rarely ever gets to do what he wants and so I didn’t want to judge him since it’s his money eventually.

We discussed plans for Christmas and he told me to handle everything since he won’t be back till Dec. 20th. He told me he had put aside money for christmas decoration, food, gifts, kids needs etc. The money in total was 100$. I was completely shocked. I told him 100$ for an entire family’s christmas celebration was ridiculously not enough. He shrugged saying it’s all he’s got but I pointed out how he’s paying for his friend’s and his girlfriend’s travel expenses. He told me to just “take it” but I said that if he decided to leave me with just 100 bucks then I won’t be doing anything for christmas. We had lots of arguments and couldn’t get this resolved.

He’s in Qatar now (he left days ago). Yesterday, while I was cleaning I found an envelope with the same 100$ and a note from him telling me “to make it work”. I sent him a message that I’ve decided that I won’t be doing anything for christmas with this little money, period. He was livid; he just kept sending one angry message after another calling me “spoiled” and telling me to stop expecting to live like I was still living in my parents house and to stop trying to “rob” the kids of enjoying the holidays like the other kids.

I haven’t replied but he’s livid saying I’m punishing him for going and trying to guilt him using his own money. Am I Wrong?
