We got our tax return and decided we'd spend it on a new vehicle for the family. We've been looking and looking and finally found one we both loved for an excellent price.
We go and buy it, and the guy has my husband sign the title. We have 3 kids I was trying to keep at bay, so no big deal... We can add my name on when we go to the DMV.
Okay... This morning we all get up, kiddos ready, oldest off to school, and my hubby and I and our 1 and 2 year old head off to spend the rest of our morning at the DMV. Pointless. Because when all was said and done, my husband never once asked the lady about getting my name put on the title or registration. He asked if I would go and clean one of the kids up in the bathroom and I said "don't I have to be here to sign something?"
And then when I finally asked, "so is just your name going on this?" He said "oh I'll ask...." The dmv worker said it was too late to do so.
It's probably stupid:(
I'm just upset and my husband thinks I'm being ridiculous. But if it wAs the other way around and I had taken our entire tax return and out it on a vehicle just in MY name, he would have been beyond pissed too!!!!!!!
Ugh:/ we're both off today and we usually love family days together..... I just can't get over how he's mad at ME now.
**thankyou for all the responses. I'm glad there's a place to vent here on cafe mom so that certain arguments don't turn into bigger issues in our relationships~ sometimes we just need a place to let it all out and let things go:)
To all of the women who say it's no big deal and their spouses have all the vehicles in their name, or vice-versa..... DIDNT YOU KNOW GOING INTO IT THAT THAT WOULD BE THE CASE??
If my husband and I had discussed his name only being on it, I wouldn't have had an issue. But we went into this together, we've always done this sort of thing together.... So honestly, I didn't think twice about it and perhaps I just assumed more than I should.
No I'm not worried about him leaving me or anything like that. It was just the fact of the matter. Money doesn't come easy to us. This was a big decision and a big deal for our family. We don't go out and buy cars all the time. We both work long and hard for the money we make.
It's not something that can't be fixed, I understand that. Just another hassle I hate making time for.
Thankyou all again:)
