Are you allowed to drive your dh/so car?

Update: I think it's funny how many are bashing that I have a used car and dh a new one and equating this with how much he just love and respect me. I am a sahm. I don't have to work, we are financially responsible and not on any PA. We live frugally and we at this time cannot afford 2 new cars without giving up savings. My car is not a necessity it is an extra. I'm grateful to have it.

Letting dh have something of his own, the only thing solely his, is not a big deal when he works extremely hard to provide for our family so I don't have to work.

I feel sorry for the husbands if those of you who frankly seem selfish. Can't your husband have ONE thing to call his own?




Dh bought me a 13 yr old van. Then he bought himself a brand new Subaru Impreza.

He said he prefers I not drive his car unless necessary.

This is the first time he's ever been possessive if something. It's his first brand new car. I am surprisingly not offended. I told him I'm fine just driving the van.

Would you be mad? Is your dh/so the same way?

I would be pretty shitty if Dh bought me a 13 year old vehicle and himself a brand new one...


Dh encourages me to drive his truck, but I don't very often

My dh and I have no problem driving each others cars. He has a Tesla and I LOVE to drive it.

Yep, I can drive his (although I don't very often) and he drives mine too. Even though we have our own cars, we are married so we share. We don't have separate bank accounts either.

Wow. I would be pissed. Does this bother you? My husband and I both have brand new vehicles so I don't really ever need to drive his, but he isn't possessive about his, and he wouldn't stick me with the older one and tell me to stay away from his toyota

Both cars are our cars. I drive whichever is most convenient.
