Do you support each other's vices?

Shoes are my vice, watches his. He doesn't mind if I buy more shoes as long as we can afford it and I don't mind if he buys a new watch if we can afford it, either. I'm not Imelda Marcos or anything - I only have 12 pairs - but occasionally he'll tease me about my shoes and I'll point to his 8 watches and he'll grin.

So do either of you have a harmless vice like this? If so, does your spouse support it?

He likes buying tools, usually he buys one a week (mostly little things). He keeps up with the money so he knows what's in the budget. I like snow globes lol so I get a few a year, since I like the collectible ones.

We don't really.  I buy a lot of crafting supplies and tend to collect them more than use them.  He laughs at me sometimes but never complains.  Not even when I spent close to $100 on paper....because it was pretty. lol  He's addicted to ebay and this electronic store from China.  He's constantly ordering stuff.  It doesn't bother me as long as I don't have to hear about it. lol

Yep I don't like his smoking habit but I just go with it. I learned nagging don't help him want to quit.

I LOVE diamonds. DH loves video games. We support each other's habit by spacing it out and agree not to indulge in our own habits; otherwise, we would be broke.

His vice is fishing equipment.  I don't mind as I fish too.  My vice is The Sims games.  He fully supports me in it as he surprises me with the latest expansions as often as he can.  I don't get to play much anymore though.  :(

 Animals. I really married the wrong man for me that way. By that I mean he never says no. We have TONS of animals. lol I went to the feed store to buy chicken food and came home with 10 turkey poults. He killed all of them for me. That's love baby!

Neither of us really have vices that I can think of... maybe video games for him, and I don't mind that he buys them. He's always respectful of our time together as a family, so no biggie. I really don't have anything personally... baby clothes, recently, but that's kind of a necessity as our son is due in 7 weeks! lol

 Shoes and craft stuff are mine. his are electronics and tools. We indulge one another as much as possible.
