We’ve been married 42 years. I cook, clean and take care of our finances. He paid for a trip to Paris, then asked for the money back

‘He pretends to forget to pick up flowers. We have not been to a movie together for the longest time’

Dear Moneyist,

I have been married for 42 years. He is a nice man, with a good personality and great social skills.

I do housework and take care of other appointments as needed. I cook, do small home repairs and painting, etc., and take care of all our financial planning. I worked in a medical career. He was in IT at a prestigious university.

I am getting older. He has this idea that I have all of this money. I do not. I manage it. Everything is in both our names. I manage all our finances. His income is five times my income.

He has always been very passive-aggressive. If I ask him for help with tasks, he acts very put-upon and I end up angry.

Instead, the agency extended its “no-sail order” through Oct. 31. Cruise operations stopped in the U.S. in mid-March amid COVID-19 outbreaks on several ships.

Carnival Cruise Line canceled all U.S. cruises for November and December except for those that will leave from PortMiami and Port Canaveral, which are on track to restart Nov. 1. Royal Caribbean Group and MSC Cruises continue to sell cruises for November. Disney Cruise Line and Virgin Voyages are still selling cruises for December.
