My GF wanted me to quit my job, i did, now she’s mad.


Jan. 12, 2020

I’ve been with my (26m) gf (27f) for a little over 4 years now. We have two children a little boy who’s 2 and a little girls which is 1 and my gf is a sahm I live in North Dakota so if you know about this state it’s all oilfield jobs. I was working as a derrickhand on the rigs, 21 days on, away from home and 7 days off.
This put stress on our relationship and I hated being away from my kids and gf but I also didn’t want them to grow up poor like I did. I want them all to be well taken care of. My gf asked me if I would quit and take a job with less hours so I did.
I went from working 100+ hours a week and away from home to 50 a week and home every night which is nice to get to be home for holidays, birthdays, and not working in -55 or +100 degrees. I’ve had this job for about a month and now my gf is complaining about our income now, but it’s like a trade off, this is what she wanted me to do and now she’s mad. She doesn’t want me to go back to the rigs but she doesn’t like the income now.
I would really like some advice, we are fighting often over finances now, but she doesn’t want me to go back. I really don’t know what to do, it’s like she thinks money grows on trees.
TL;DR gf wanted me to quit my good paying job to be home with her and kids, I’d did now we fight over finances since I don’t make even half of what I did
