Default Finally figured some of it out.

September 11th, 2016, 23:45
It might have taken many years of marriage but figure out something today.

I broke down and bought a new gaming system this afternoon while watching the nfl early games. At the same time ordered my wife a new system. ..she was very excited not mad, as I didn't really let her know I was buying one.

It's like an episode of Seinfeld, if those characters were married.

I wouldn't appreciate it when I'd find out. Childish way to act. Be a man and face the music. For if you can not trust one another, the base is gone, I think.

That was my basic thought - all depends on how you deal with money as a couple. For us, that wouldn't fly … just not something we would do.

Last night my wife and I had an argument about socks. It was late, and I had already fallen asleep when she woke me up to get her a specific pair of socks that she wanted to wear. I couldn't believe it. Also, we hardly ever argue so it was really weird.

It struck me as quite Seinfeldian.

She couldn't buy those socks herself?

Also this thread is a bit confusing to me, maybe it is a Swedish thing but even for married couples usually there is a budget split in three, one shared budget for buying things that affect the family, and one for each private person.

So, if one person would want to buy a new computer for themselves for example, they could use their own private budget for that. But if the family needs a new oven it'd go on the shared budget.

I guess this would not work in situations where one person is a housewife, houseman, or one person has a much much bigger income than the other, but those are uncommon scenarios in Sweden. There is also a workaround to that, the person with a much bigger income, also put a much larger sum into the shared budget.

She wasn't asking me to buy them. She already owns them. She just wanted me to physically get up and grab them for her.

It does seem to be a modern thing that spouses are having separate accounts/budgets but my wife and I share one.

Say what? That's common? I'm Swedish and my wife and I do have seperate accounts, but mostly just because we kept our old ones. We don't have seperate budgets. I tend to pay all the bills so she's usually sitting at more spending money, but if I need money I just ask her for it…

I know it is becoming more common - and in fact is recommended by financial advisors to young couples to have three 'buckets'. But my wife and I have been together for nearly 30 years now (married close to 25), and we have just the one 'bucket' …
