Do You Ask or Tell Him ?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Your SO/Dh......like if you want to go get a new dress...do you tell him you're going to go get one, or do you ask him if you can go get one?  

If  you want new towels....do you go get them or ask his opinion?

We budget, so if there is money in the budget for it I go get it without asking. If we didn't budget for it, or it is more than normal, I bring it up because it will pull funds from another category.

I work, so if I want something, I buy it with my own money.

I'm an adult, not a child.  I don't need to ask my husband for permission to do anything.

Quoting TheMrs407:

Neither. I just buy it. Unless it's a major expense we both buy what we like. If its a major expense then we discuss it.

If I were using money he earned, I would ask. But, I would be using money I've earned. So, I would just tell him.

I'd just buy it. He's too involved with video games and work to typically notice or care.

Just buy it, most of the time he won't even notice. I do talk to him if I'm getting new furniture or something that will take up space.

Normally I handle the finances. If money is tight then I tell him or ask his opinion. I get upset if I go to buy something we need and we don't have the money because he has spent it without telling me.

 I go get what I want, as does he.  We both have jobs and our own money.

It depends on how much it is. We have agreed that we can each spend a certain amount without asking the other one, but if it is over that amount, we discuss it with the other one.
