DH and I have been having a revolving fight and I don't know if i'm being confrontational or if I should stand my ground.
he keeps wanting to do things or buy things and to try to get me to give in he tells me that he's going to get me something or I can go and get this new shirt i've been wanting or whatever. I feel like a lot of the times he's trying to bribe me so he can get his way. we're trying to save money right now and i'm not so concerned with him doing something or spending money but it's the way he goes about trying to convince me. Then he gets mad and says that i always complain that he never does anything for me but when he tries i tell him to not get me anything.
It's just become a huge argument and it's come to the point where I don't even know what is the best thing to do and i'm tired of fighting. we're trying to save money and i don't think it's worth it to justify one purchase for another

"""So i told him that yes he deserves to go on liberty and enjoy himself and just forget about getting me anything"""
This is where it went very very wrong...you are now stuping to his level and being emotionally manipulating by making him feel guilty...you do realize he and you are just doing it back and forth....
I would have just said go and have fun...and while he was gone buy myself a "little" something...it is that simple....
