  • no i havent,..honestly if i did id be afraid of what would happen..verbally i mean. i too never have spending money or any money really. hes never given me money for "myself". its kinda pitiful that we consider it "stealing" HIS money..really it shoulld be OUR money (the husbands and wives) sigh..in a perfect world huh?

  • My husband doesn't control the finances, we share that responsibility. So there is no "stealing". My parents have that kid of relationship and I find it bizarre. When one partner has all the control it leads to resentment on both sides.
    So to answer the question, no, I don't have too.

  • No, we have a joint account so he can see exactly where I spend what I spend. Sometimes I take change and put it away though, which he knows about but he doesn't know how much is there. That's my stash for gifts for him and the kids.

  • nope, we never have much money so the only time I get to buy myself anything is when my family gives me birthday money, and its usually around 75$ so I get to spend 75$ a year on myself, when we do happen to have a lil extra I usually wanna get the kids stuff. And when I need money for gas, cigs or what ever I ask for it.

  • Nope. I need money, I raid his wallet. He needs money, he takes it out of mine. No big deal. It's *our* money, not his or mine.

  • In our house, it's our money. If I need it, I will take it out, but I will let him know so that he can stop at the bank or make sure he has his bank card. He would do the same for me.
