My husband came home from work in a good mood. A few minutes later he showed me his new contract with his raise for next year. I said I was proud of him and started kissing him. He was like “Oh so that’s what turns you on when I bring home more money?”
I was pissed. I’m nine months pregnant, sorry if I don’t feel like making out every day UG. Am I being sensitive or would you be pissed?

I think it was just a bad joke.

It would be entirely dependent on his tone. I can imagine my husband saying something like that, but he would be saying it in jest and it wouldn’t offend me in the slightest.

I would probably say something like, “DH, that’s not funny and you know it.” then continue kissing him and telling him I’m proud of him.

I voted no, I wouldn’t be mad. I’m on your husband’s side because I think his comment was harmless and most likely meant to be a joke. I would laugh if my husband said something like that and joke back with him. It’s fun to flirt with your own husband. 😉
Of course being nine months pregnant you should get a pass for anything, lol.

Uhhhh….I feel like I don’t have enough information to make a good call on this one because its all about the tone with which this phrase was delivered.

I’d be annoyed but I wouldn’t dwell on it. Ifyou have a feeling that’s how he feels, I’d say something. But he honestly could have just 100% been joking, as tasteless as the joke is and didn’t realize it.

It totally depends on the tone. If he was teasing I think it’s fine. If he was serious (and only you would know because you live with him), he’s being kind of a dick. But honestly, if he showed it to you and was happy and proud of it, I can’t see why he WOULDN’T want you to praise him. So I’m wondering if it was a teasing comment that you took the wrong way.

Sounds like he was just joking. If so, yes you’re overreacting. Give him the benefit if the doubt. Do you REALLY think he’s legitimately accusing you of trading love/affection/sex for money? If not, ease up on the poor guy.
This is totally something my husband would say and we would laugh about it. In fact, I laughed when I read that part of your post. I thought the offensive part was still coming, haHa.

I would have just rolled my eyes. Its just a bad joke. I doubt your husband thinks youre shallow or a gold digger unless he makes jabs like that regularly.

Totally depends on tone! Even if it was a joke, I wouldn’t find it to be funny. I’d probably feel a bit hurt.

I instantly pictured him saying this sarcastically, mostly because we’ve joked about the same thing recently at my home due to my husband getting a new job with significantly better pay.
