I can understand someone paying say £3000 on a new PC, on a shared account - but someone spending less than 1 pair of jeans on a monitor (He got it super cheap folks), that will probably last longer than "her fashion" - I have little to no belief about.

I wouldn't stand anyone controlling my life. It's my PC, my monitor, heck it's my own god damn gift card. What makes YOU (your wife) have a say over it?

Sorry man, had to vent out there - can't stand that type of crap in relationships.
This haha

Here's the thing, I never really told her about the GCs either. I had them for about a month to 2 months. She says, we could have used them on other things for the house and kids. She says she is more hurt I had to "keep it from her". I know what would have happened, she would have spent it on stupid useless crap! (which oddly enough, that's what she thinks of my "hobby")


The thing is the last time I got something big, was last year when I built this SFF rig. Point is, I never buy myself hardly anything. frown.gif

it's quite simple. Just tell her that you had to keep it from her, or else you wouldn't get your own enjoyment in your purchase. You should question her on how much you've actually spent and see if that's fair when you compare it to others or even her.
You could also raise the point of it being future proof and it actually being used by the kids, her and you to watch movies or anything like that. Sure you could have bought other stuff, for the house for example, but you should say that you also live in a house, where you would like to be happy in too.
You know your wife better than anyone in the world really. But, unless you have spending habits (which doesn't sound like it) AND considering you are actually earning money, then you should be entitled to your own purchases alongside with the 'house and kids' ones too

Well put. I think at this point I need someone besides me to tell her that. Maybe her father.

I don't envy your position. It's always easier for outsiders to say "Dump the wife" and "get rid of her" but I realize it's not that easy.

For me, I have come to the agreement with my wife that I support and let her do her things (expensive hair cuts/coloring, house items, clothes) and daddy gets his geek on. It's a 50/50 agreement. I have several friends whose wives OWN them.. I will never understand that and I could never do it but everyone to their own. thumb.gif

haha yeah, I say that in a joking manner (dump the wife) . To be honest, if it's true love, you'll come to an agreement. Despite me never understanding the principle of my ex buying shoes she already had, I was happy that she was happy. Doesn't matter what it was or how much it was, if she was happy, that's all I wanted and needed in my life, happiness. Money is a thing that's there one minute and gone the other. Happiness even for a short period of time stays with you forever in your earth and soul.
