Am I overreacting??????

I admit I am a fairly sensitive person....with that said. My husband and I have been married for over two years..just FYI. Ok, recently he had to open a new checking account for an organization he co-founded. My problem is that he used the date of his divorce from last wife as his pin code. I was very upset. He said it was a date he would never forget because his divorce was a blessing. You would think he would use our wedding date, birth of a child, etc. not a date relating to an ex spouse. It caused a pretty big fight between us. I am still reeling from it. Am I overreacting?

Truthfully it's not something I would be upset about. Now, if he used their old wedding date I would be very mad

This. I too will always remember the date of my divorce because it was such a blessing.

Kind of weird, but if it makes you uncomfortable he should be understanding

Maybe he sees that date as the rebirth of his new life? To some people the finalizing of a divorce is a huge deal.

You're overreacting. His divorce from his ex wife was a good thing for the two of you. It might have been different if it was his wedding date to her. But regardless, it's a set of numbers that he can remember and that won't be as easy for an identity thief to figure out as your birthday or wedding date or whatever. He didn't do it to hurt you, he did it to protect his account. Most banks advise against using important and easy to find out dates as pins

I don't think it's a big deal.
