Long time lurker, first time poaster. My wife and I used to make $300k each and live a $700k lifestyle. We were always living like we made an extra $100k when we didn’t. That was because of her to be honest. I was always ok with a Honda Accord but she needed a Range Rover because “I MAKE $300k!”

Now we’re fucked. We just had a baby and she’s not working. Our savings is shit and our non real estate debt is higher than our savings.

We have $300k a year coming in and we’re still living like we make $700k. She spends like an idiot. The last week she bought a Peleton and a $2k jacket because “well what I’m saving on child care...I’m I deserve it!”

She doesn’t get that we are completely fucked if we keep going this route.

Divorce is not an option. Her working is not an option. We have about $70k equity in a million dollar house. We’re fucked. No way about it.

Look, motherfucker, sit her down with a spreadsheet for expenses and a sheet with all of your accounts. Explain you are both gonna be fucking homeless if she keeps it up. If that doesn't work, bend her over your knee and spank her until she says the words, "I understand." Call the bank and put a limit on her card.

Can you separate out your finances? Your salay belongs to you. put it in a separate account. Let her see her debt run up. Otherwise you will need to divorce or at least threaten divorce. You dont need to leave her. Just tell her you love her but finances need to be separated to protect your childrens future. She needs a wake up call.

A wise dude once told me it’s not what you make it’s what you keep - you gotta look to optimize your finances by paying off debt, maximizing tax savings and not spending an excessive amount of money.

You should seek to build the equity in your home to $200k as well and maybe refinance to get rid of private mortgage insurance and get a lower rate. PMI isn’t required after 20% equity.

Also stop spending like a degenerate and tell your wife that as well. You basically need to reality check this chick quick and get your house in order before you start sending the kid to school which is likely gonna be huge money drain given your consumption habits.

The fact is that $600k/year just wasn't that much. $300k/year definitely isn't much. She HAS to get back to work. And both of you need to earn more. Because the baby alone will cost $100k/year, you really both need to start making $400k/year each just to break even. $500k/year each would be better.
