We sat down and wrote out a budget a couple of months ago because we are planning on buying a house and were saving for a down payment. Well, now we aren't making a down payment so I feel like we can loosen up the budget a bit, but I feel guilty and from his reactions and I can tell that it frustrates him. I don't go overboard with spending, but I hate feeling guilty for every purchase!!
We do have some debt that we are paying off as well, but I'm of the belief that it's ok to enjoy the present as well, even if you have debt. We are making well above minimum payments and it's little or no interest on everything, so it's not like we are losing that much money.
Suck it up and stop spending or tell him that he needs to compromise here?
