    I understand most of the words, but not the overall meaning

    Please, what is the meaning of the following? Thank you!

    Ты в курсе, что у меня давно закончились деньги? Поэтому,
    пожалуйста пересмотри статью расходов "Любимая жена". И просьба огромная: не говори мне о проблемах, я и так все знаю и прекрасно понимаю.

    This is how I understood it:
    Are you aware that I am out of money for a long time now? Therefore, could you please revisit the budget item titled "My dear wife". Also, I have a big favor to ask you: do not tell me about problems. I know that all and I perfectly understand everything.

    Ahhh, so that's the big favour! To not tell her about about problems. I didn't think that the two subjects were intertwined. Thanks! That clears things up!

    She wants money...

    Look, it's sure not my business, but I'd think about a divorce. It'll be cheaper.

    Veshik! You would rather get divorce, than give your wife some money?

    Я ей никогда не даю деньги. Она прекрасно знает, где лежит чековая книжка.
