Ohhh that's a touche subject. I wonder how his culture feels about wives who get fed up with supporting the partners family & leave.

Talk about a joint bank account. If he refuses, leave. It's financial abuse to deny you access to money or to expect that you pay for everything if you get a job. If you're happy to help support his family talk about doing it in a way that ensures you and your family don't go without.
