@apex:  my Darling Husband does the same thing. he lays around all weekend and I do everything!  But Darling Husband will let me spend what I want on stuff. However, we discuss all purchases. Its usually me that wont let him get stuff. 😀

Ugh, I feel you. My husband and I just had a 20 minute fight over a tuna sandwich.

What’s his reasoning for not spending money on an ipad? Is there something else you guys need to spend it on?

Oh heck no, girl. You better stomp on him being bossy real quick. Darling Husband works and I’m at home, so I take care of the household chores. We have a deal that I’ll do the cooking and cleaning, but he has to keep his mouth shut about how I’m doing it. If he really needs that stuff done, tell him to shut down the computer and help. It’s unacceptable for him to be sitting on his butt and ordering you around while you are doing things around the house.

As for the iPad…. I kind of agree with your hubby. Even though it’s your paycheck, it’s a MASSIVE purchase and he has every right to have an issue with you spending $600+ on something. Darling Husband and I discuss any purchase over $100. Right now, Darling Husband wants a drumset. We have a deal that certain conditions have to be met and then we can seriously consider him buying one. Why not strike a deal with him? Compromise, especially on money matters, is very important.

I’m having a “sometimes marriage sucks” day too. We are in the early stages of buying a home and it’s incredibly stressful. Days like this make me miss my old single life just a little tiny bit! That probably doesn’t help but just wanted you to know you’re not alone!

My advice? screw the iPad. Get an Android! So much better and cheaper too! lol. You deserve it.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  I agree too! My brother just got an Android tablet and it’s the coolest freaking thing!

I read that ipad 3 is coming out in March.  My suggestion is wait and either get the ipad 3 or get a discount on an ipad 2.

@apex:  We got in a HUGE fight over the computer games last week…he is now only allowed to play 2 games a day because he literally played all day for 3 days, and any other free moment he had for weeks and I never did anything with him. I think you need to have a conversation about the games before you blow up with anger as I did.

@zippylef:  

@bestbuddies:   I got Mr. Hedgie one for graduation and I had searched for MONTHS switching back bewteen iPods and Android Tablets. In the end, Androids were cheaper, had MUCH better features, far less kinks and issues, and could be used as an awesome e-reader with free apps like the Nook and the Kindle. Plus a bajillion more reasons why they are better.

I could be biased but, if you are thinging about an iPad, check out Android too. They are so cool I don’t even want to let him use his own gift!

@Mrs Hedgehog:  Plus, you can buy an Android knowing that it’s going to be more easily upgradable and not made obsolete by the next model that the company already has in production and waiting to roll out 6 months later.
