Like when it comes to money/investing/spending and what not? Mine does not, he "tells me" what he's going to do and it really pisses me off. Sometimes he doesn't even tell me!

I keep saying I want us to make these decisions together but he just doesn't get it. We've been together 8 years FFS.

Yes. I'm the one who is in charge of the money. If I tell him he can't spend any money he doesn't. He likes it that way.

Depends. My husband comes from a long line of investors. He for the most part has done nothing but make us money effortlessly. He recently invested in a Buffalo Wild Wingz (lol) as a silent majority partner. It does impeccable business and is already making us money.

I can't imagine not being listened to! There would be hell to pay if he did something with a large sum of money without talking to me first.

Yes he does he always asks me about big purchases or at least mentions it to me to hear if I will say I don't think we can afford it lol. I on the other hand just buy stuff unless of course it is a big purchase.
