It depends on what it is, but usually anything over $400 we discuss. We are pretty frugal though.

Our money is completely seperate, so I don't HAVE to discuss anything with him- but we discuss just about every purchase outside of groceries.

It all depends on what I want. As long as we have the money he really doesn't care.

Depends on what it is. Grocery items? No. Kid items? No. Toiletries for me? No.

I bought a house without out mine. Well a mobile home. Back then I was buying and flipping them. You can make some good money like that.

I don't "have" to either, but its more about mutual respect I think.

Quoting ffpm10:

I will spend as much of MY money as I want without asking, he also has HIS money that he can spend how he wants. If we need extra, then we talk about it and if we agree we take it out of the family money.

We pretty much discuss anything before we buy.
If I go out, we talk budget!

 It depends on who I expect to pay for it. We have separate incomes. Some things I pay for and others I expect him to.
