Its not that hard to save money right? I work full time-he makes twice as much as I do shouldnt it be easier..

So my boyfriend makes a lot of money gambling online, he makes at least double my monthly income in 2-3 weeks. The only problem is that we never save any money. Most of the money is always on a kind of hold- to be "invested" or goes to car repairs (which I know are badly needed) His only excuse for everything is this damn car! He bought a salvaged car a couple months ago and has spent more than 1000 on misc repairs; he blames me for that because I said yeah buy it (I've never owned a car of my own let alone buy one- and he took my advice)
We have a 2 year old son common sense says that we need a savings. I say all the time, how much money have you saved? (answer is always none) and I suggest that he make a certain percentage of all income to go towards savings for our son. He usually gets defensive or says he would if he could- but the car!
I suggested just setting aside $20 and not even counting that as part of his money and saving it- - even $5 or $10 can add up quick. I buy most of the things for our son- except his diapers; his mom usually buys him those most of the time. I pay most of the bills, and take care of all the necessities- including all housework and childcare. He supports all the luxuries- which I could do without, get buy nice things that are nice- but not necessary. Then use those things as an excuse why he can’t save $10 out of 200 or 300 that he makes. Or make it seem like he is supporting the family when he pays for something or gives me money for groceries
