Hello, I am sorry that you are hurt by your husband’s actions here, I can understand how him asking you for money to be with his girlfriend would be upsetting to you. Because this is a Q&A website, what exactly is your mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?

My husband said to me that he didn't realize it would hurt me. Is it obvious that he has no care at all for me or any regards ***** ***** feelings?
Expert:  Dr. Z replied 2 years ago.

I cannot tell you if he does not care about your feelings as I cannot read his mind, but I can tell you at the very least he is not cognizant of your feelings based on this action by him. If he did not care he may have talked about his girlfriend more and if he was happier now as that would lean more towards vindictiveness and lack of empathy. So far he is only showing a lack of awareness of how you feel, which would be considered bad judgement.
