Hey Mums, Please Help Me. What should I do now?

Black woman

I’m a professional teacher but I didn’t want to rely on my monthly salary alone so I decided to do venture into some businesses.

So, I took a loan that will be deducted from my salary for 4 years. Hubby brought the idea that we buy a car that he’ll use as Taxi when he closes from work. This was the understanding we had and I made the investment to buy the car. We bought the car and I used the remaining money for diapers business.

It’s been a year now, and hubby does not use the car for Taxi as we agreed to. Whenever I ask him, he gives me excuses like he wants to do some maintenance first, meanwhile, he drives it everywhere. Sometimes, he’ll set a date to start but he won’t.

The problem now is, my take home after my salary is paid is lesser while hubby works and earns more but he’s very stingy. I am left to bear most of our financial responsibilities.

Now, he wants to travel abroad. He has decided to sell the car and use the money to add to what he already has. I don’t want him to sell it because we have two kids; a three-year-old girl and a 2-month-old boy.

Rather, I want to give the car to someone else who will use it for Taxi so I can get some money to support the kids and me when he’s gone.

The problem is since I made this suggestion, hubby has been keeping malice with me and has stopped eating my food. Where did I go wrong? Anything can happen when he travels. He may not secure a job as early as possible to send us money. What should I do now?
