So, yesterday my husband and I were suppose to go out to eat since my in laws would have our son for a few hours, however, he decided he would sleep instead. I took the opportunity to get some errands done. For the past few months I have been thinking about getting rid of my smart phone and just get a basic phone. I was tired of paying internet for my phone, his phone, and at home. I was also tired of "being connected" all the damn time.
As part of my goal of becoming more of a minimalist, I decided to at least look into it. So, last night I went and looked at the basic phone, ask all of my questions that I had, etc. I did find a basic phone that I liked and it was on sale for 99 cents. I decided to go ahead and make the leap. I know this will be a big change for me, but I am still able to use my iphone as an ipod and connect to wi-fi IF I need to (at least during the transition). Anyways, hubby was still asleep when I got home. He did wake up for a little bit last night, ate and then went back to bed.
This morning he gets up early. I sense someone standing over me and I wake up. He starts yelling at me on why I bought a new phone when my other phone is perfectly fine. I explain to him my reasons and told him that I didn't think I needed his permission, especially since I didn't pay $100 or more for it. It was freaking $1.05 with tax. It didn't affect him in any way. He told me that I need to tell him these things that way he can tell me if it is a bad idea or not.
Was I wrong to not tell him about my plans? I mean he is either working or sleeping so when I do get to see him, I only tell him the need to know type stuff. Should this have been a need to know?Answer Question

I guess in his mind you need to get permission.
Now I do not tell my DH I am going to buy something to get permission. I just do it because it is what I think married couples should do. It doesn't mean I still wont do it.
You could have kept your other phone and just stoped the internet on it, you know that right?
