About 2 weeks after my wife communicated that she had Stage 1 BC, she told me that from now on the money she makes above and beyond half the household bills is hers and what she does with it is a secret and none of my business. I told her there's a name for this, Financial Infidelity and that I would not accept that situation. She then moved into an apartment which I agreed with and is now going through the treatment of BC without me to help her. I feel this is an extreme example of passive aggressiveness. That I won't be there to support her through this as her husband makes me feel terrible and she knows this. I communicated that we should table this money issue until after she was well again and she did not respond. Any thoughts?
