You are being controlled by your boyfriend and the best thing you can is make a plan, get a job and start becoming independent. This relationship is not fair. He is using finances as control. Staying home and raising children is work however you need to find an "out". This is not the way a relationship should work. If he tells you to save money, tell him you are going to start "charging" him for anything you do for him, laundry, meals etc. See how he reacts to that. You have been with this guy since you were a kid yourself. You will have a long miserable life if you continue to let this happen. Take charge of your own life and if he doesn't like it then it's time to end it. He will be responsible for child support until the kids are 18.
