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?

If I want something, especially something for myself like clothes, I don't ask or tell him. I just get it. Even towels or something it's the same I just get it. I only ask his opinion if its something that effects him. But I've never asked " permission" to purchase anything. We dicusd large purchases together but it's not like I have to ask if I can. I'm an adult and smart enough to know what we can afford and what we can't.

Why would I ask my husband permission for anything?

A new dress or towels, I just get them. If it was a $3000 tv, we discuss it. For example we have been discussing getting an above ground pool. We decided to do it next summer because we would have to level our yard out and it would be too much work right now. So basically any amount that we would take out of savings we would discuss

When we get paid we set aside a certain amount for spending money and savings, and bills so we know what we can spend and don't have to ask each other or discuss it.

How much is the dress? A $100 -$150 dress, I'm just going to get it. If I've fallen in love with some $300 dress, I will get his thoughts/opinions. If he says he'd rather I not purchase it, I don't.

I saw some picture on polyvore that had a Michael Kors purse. I guess the bag is $400. I want to go get it today. I will most likely ask his thoughts about it first. It isn't a relationship requirement, I just feel that it's something I should do.

A new bedding set? Sure, Ill ask because its his room too. A dress, no? Im the only person that has to like it. Towels? No, he doesnt care. I dont ask to buy anything unless it costs a lot of money.
