The problem there is that They spend what they want, WE get saddled with the bill!

hey, maybe that's what the wife/girlfriend is upset about!

Then when she finds out otherwise she will say "Do you think I am, stupid?!" Then you are in real trouble

OK, couldn't let this thread die without posting a new classic application....

One of my best club-buddies is, shall we merely say, wa-a-a-a-a-ay 'overstocked' on RC gear. He has a barn & a garage full to & above the rafters! The guy has over 50 radios sittin' on a shelf! When he's mentioned some new plane that's caught his eye we tease him about slipping it in past his Mrs., & he gets all piss&vinegar about how he buys anything he pleases & has the wife's blessing.....that of course is the short of it. *LOL*

OK, this past Friday my 2 travelin' buddies bail on me after we planned to go to a big Swap Meet up mid-state, because of the bad Wx conditions out west (snow & especially, ice storm) that hit the day before. 'Iron Man' calls me unexpectedly the night before & says the Li'l Lady has declared she's going out of town shopping on Saturday, so if I still wanta go to this Swap Meet, we'll go. So we hit the road at 5:15am & fight our way thru the conditions, arriving only about an hour late. To shorten the story somewhat, we both bought planes & other 'stuff'. He picked up this really fine Yak 55, plus got some hugs & photos with this really FINE sexy calendar model to boot! We load up & head back home.

As we pull onto his street, he's lookin' ahead & says "She got home before us." And just as we're turning into his driveway he says, "OK, look.....when we go inside, you don't have to say anything about my new planes or anything else that happened. I'll get the van unloaded later tonight but I'll help you move your stuff over to your truck."

Only the names have been skipped over to protect the would-be-'innocent'. But obviously, despite my bud's "claims" to the contrary, his answer to this thread would be, "Nothing! What happened in Burlington STAYS in Burlington!!"

LOL, some of these are so freakin funny! Do you guys actually let your wife control you like this?!

I've been married 8 years and I told her up front that what I make is mine and will remain mine and what she makes remains hers. Screw all that hate, life is too short; you've just gotta put your foot down and stop letting her walk on you.

OK, Ill be the straight man here..

Better to have a plan, agree on how much you spend on your hobby - you can get buy in this way. Do the same thing with vacations, other variable expenses.

Openness and honesty work better for relationship in the long run, if you have to "hide it" - that is not good

I'm one of the lucky ones.

Been married for 38 years and my wife doesn't and never had a problem with my hobbies.

But our mail lady gave me the riot act for buying to much stuff, that she had to deliver.

Complained that you're providing her with a job. Yep - sounds about typical.

To start, you married the wrong one... The only way you can fix this is to get divorced... If you don't want to do that, then have fun with her for the rest of your life!!

hahahaa

I never understood why dudes complain about their crap wives.. You married them, it's your fault!! You should have known how she was from the beginning!

After reading all these, I need to call my wife now to tell her how awesome she is.. hahahaa
