So I've been working a lot of extra shifts this year to pull down some extra green and pay off debt. With the credit card debt finally gone my wife decides that we need new furniture and so we drop a bundle on new couches, a bedroom set and kitchen table. Now in my eyes, this stuff was for her. I like the old couches. I thought our old bed was fine. So, I figure, since my wife was able to get the stuff she wants I'm ok to get a few things I'd like. So I order my Schroeder cabinet and get ready to buy my new amp. Then---my wife finds out and decides that since I was able purchase bass gear she can go buy a boat-load of clothes and now she's talking about new carpet and getting the whole interior of the house painted. If I spend $1 on me there will be at least $5 going her way. (And apparently the couches and bedroom set were for "us")That's why I'm scared to spend money. Anyone else find that you're scared to spend because it will open the floodgates for your significant other?
