I'd set your sights a little lower - you aren't gonna have a lot of change left after you go buy a spine.
:P Me and my wife have a 50/50 thing going on here, we both compromise a lot. We both discuss any purchase with each other first. Its part of being in a healthy Growing relationship. She is a awesome woman and to be honest if I were to be "OWNED" by anyone I would rather it be her, she is a very compisinate woman who allows me to be me(a nerd). So laugh it up, Ill laugh with you...my wife owns me :D
This is what it looks like when an adult responds to children on the internet =)
Haha, right, because nothing says 'adult' like having to be sat down and given an allowance, especially out of money you are the sole earner of. That's not so much a 50/50 thing as 0/100. Can you even imagine if he'd come in here and told this story with the roles reversed? He'd have been ripped to fffuuu for being sexist, controlling and incredibly patronising (and probably chastised as a freeloader for good measure).
How old are you/are you in a committed relationship?
Someones about to make a point via extreme generalization over what a real committed relationship is supposed to be like. Can't wait. =D
I was in a committed relationship for 8 years and my gf and I are still best friends. When we were together we had our own money and did what we wanted with it when we wanted, there was no permission or anything like that, we were two separate people that loved each other, that's it. That's why to me if looks like he's owned(even if he's not), so tell me, is that what committed relationships are "supposed" to be like or did my gf and I do it wrong?
To me being in a committed healthy relationship is doing what you need to do to progress the marriage unit as a whole....ONE WHOLE PART...not two separate parts doing what they can "selfishly' "separately". By allowing her to first finish her degree without interruption our lives will be better in the long run, instead of both us being tore two separate directions and we both failing. I have failed to mention she graduates next winter and I start school next year where as she will be the sole earner while I finish my degree. ITS WHAT WORKS FOR US, with two kids its hard to finish a degree and I am so proud that she has been able to so with a high GPA. Its funny how you understand exactly what my marriage is like just by reading a thread title, its funny how things are that one dimensional, I am helplessly in love with that woman, as well as constently inspired by her hard work. You don't know my situation so please don't pretend to. I may be in over my head, I may be owned and just don't know it, but I trust her completely. That is what marriage is TRUST.
The thread title however....was meant as a joke, you know...HAHA my wife is letting me...bla bla bla...but it would seem the internet as it is want to be is always so goddamn literal.
Apparently the point was missed entirely.
1: Someone posts what is to him, good news and requests advice from the community.
2: Instead of being helpful to someone reaching out, asshat responds with a snarky and mean comment that doesn't benefit anyone at all and is instead hurtful for no reason whatsoever.
3: The Adult responding to children part. Instead of retaliating in any way whatsoever to unwarranted asshattery, responds as if to a legitimate question explaining his situation and further defuses the situation by being self deprecating while obviously not in a negative way.
Mostly, I was just pointing out that @8bit_archer was being super cool about dealing with trolling. If you're gonna claim you weren't trolling then iono. I got nothing.
