I forgot this simple rule and now I am paying for it.

Dammit, I should have just bought it. Why did I tell her prior to the purchase?


Anyone else learn this lesson the hard way?

20 years of marriage this year. You're a n00b aren't you.

Used to work with a guy that carried several items of jewelery in his trunk for when he "messed up" and had to appease the spousal unit. I learned much from him.

It's BEG for forgiveness. Easier to BEG for forgiveness.

No.

But neither my wife nor I would feel we had to ask "permission" (major budget impacting purchases are discussed and planned for, not summarily shot down) to buy something major nor would we do something that required asking for forgiveness.

Seperate finances. No permissions and no apologies.

Hell, give me $1000.

This rule also works with God you know.

you KNOW you are never going to get 'permission' to tap the babysitters ass so instead just be REALLY REALLY repentant afterward. Et viola, sin forgiven.

I have a pro-gun wife who supports my obsession 100%.
Link Posted: 3/15/2011 12:46:37 AM EST


On my most recent gun purchase, I was trying to decide which one of two handguns to get. My wife told me, "You may as well just get both. You know you will eventually anyway."

I operate that way with pretty much everything.

"If you ask, you may not receive the answer you desire" and "It is easier to ask and receive forgiveness rather than permission".

Once you have been married for a few years you will never ask permission again. What a clusterfuck "asking permission" for purchases in a marriage has become. It's nothing but a power / guilt trip.

This. If they are giving you hell before marriage, it will become 100 times worse after.

The wife and I still have separate accounts after 34 1/2 years of marriage. In the beginning it didn't matter much as we were flat broke for several years. Now we still have the same accounts, but have made them joint accounts. I hit the big 60 in a few weeks and we do it now more for estate planning purposes. If something happens to one of us the other has access to the funds if needed. Joint accounts make for seamless transitions that way.

I'm familiar with the forgiveness instead of pemission thing, but note to self on the jewelry in the trunk. Your friend is a wise man! 

We both buy whatever the hell we want, no questions ask.

Carrying debt on credit cards is strictly forbidden though.

In our marriage if there if the bills are paid and there is extra money if he wants to buy something it is perfectly fine. We don't hide things from each other.
