  • ~*Never*~... I would consider that the same as lying to my husband and I can't lie to him!

  • I do, but not too much. Just enough to spring for dinner out if I don't want to cook, or to buy a tank of gas if we are broke before payday..

  • Only around Christmas or his birthday. Other than that, nope.

  • Not on purpose! I would feel like that was lying and that's something we just don't do.

  • He knows I have a stash, he just doesn't know where or how much. He knows it's because of my money fears due to my baggage with my ex husband (who would splurge to by thing and leave me without money to pay bills, buy food, etc). He doesn't mind as every once in awhile I decide I have too much and give some to him to buy something we have been wanting.

  • Only time I did was to get him a new rifle for his birthday. Just to have a stash of money, no.
