hahaha he made me giggle. He just told me he is thinking about getting a membership to a third golf course this year. I said “okay I don’t care!” And he said “WTH I want you to get mad at me so it seems like I’m doing something wrong!!! I never do anything wrong!” He’s so cute.
He never does anything to make me mad, and I really don’t mind what he spends his hard earned money on!!
Are you girls the same, or does it bother you when SO spends money on things that aren’t necessary?

Haha I understand his point, actually. My guy never gets mad at me and sometimes it is sooo frustrating! I know a lot of girls would dream of my problem but I like a good conflict once in a while :p
But to answer your question, no it doesn’t bother me when he spends his money on things that aren’t necessary as long as the necessary things have been paid for.

haha, I’m with you, I also like a good conflict once in a while, but he doesn’t do anything to make me mad. He’s always telling me about his coworkers who are always in the dog house, and questions me as to why he’s never been in the dog house. lol

Fiance and I have had combined finances for years so all major purchases (generally anything $200+) are decided on by both of us. There are things that we buy for him that I would prefer not too but I know that for the most part, these things are somewhat necessary (like the $4,000 iMac we’ll be buying in the next few weeks). Am I thrilled about this purchase? Nope, but do I know that its a necessity? Yea, so I just deal with it and go shoe shopping!

@Ryansgirl: We don’t ever get mad, because before we spent money like that, we would come to a mutual decision first. It wouldn’t be a situation of “Oh by the way, i’m doing this”. Our money is JOINT and as such, we make JOINT decisions on how it gets spent. Right now, we are saving up for a huge 6 month trip through Asia and a move to California, so there would be no 3 golf club membership discussions for us 🙂

My Fiance is kinda the same way, he will make a snide remark and I have to say look I know you are in a mood to fight about something but I am not in the mood. So sometimes I just say yeah you are right you are pissing me off and that stops it!

Fiance never spends alot of money all at once. I have to keep reminding him we have a wedding to afford and can’t do that if he keeps getting one and two dollar things all the time.
I do think its cute that he tried to make you mad. I know Mr. Shef is always trying to find little things that frustrate me for a second because he thinks its cute when I get mad… not super angry. Just a little tiffed.
