He has improved somewhat but breaks even with almost nothing left in his checking account at months end after he pays his bills. He brings in over $4000 a month from working and social security and I know he doesn’t gamble or anything and his rent is $1400/month so I’m confused why he only breaks even. He does put away $200/month. I don’t know if I can trust him to share expenses. At first he said he’d pay $1000/month and put the other $400 into an account for both of us to use for vacations etc. but I told him he’d have to give me $1400 and I’d take care of putting the money aside since I’m very good with saving and he is not. Finally he has only $20,000 in assets this needs to cover retirement and his extra expenses. Sometimes I believe I’m justified in feeling uneasy living with him and other times maybe an excuse.
We are both almost at retirement age.
Can anyone lend some advice?
