I havent seen my family for almost 4 years and i badly miss them.unfortunately they cant afford to buy laptop so i promised ill swnd them one.husband keep saying we will send the spare desktop but we dont.then i asked if i can have the laprop with broken screen and have it fixed but he keep saying we wont send them the old broken laptop.i have personal savings and i decidedi to buy a cheap laptop.he seemes upset now. I dont asked much from him at all. Am i wrong for buying a laptop for my family so ican see them through webcam.My parents are 74 yo and had not seen their grandkids yet.. It breaks my heart i couldnt bring them to see their grandkids.too expensive.

Update..
Were still not talking mode. The thing is i cant wait any longer.. Four years.. He gets hs kids nice stuff.. Smart fon laptop...shes 11 and had expensive fon..had laptop.. Its ok..im happy he gets his daughter but when it comes to my family he gives me hard time

They're your family. And you shouldn't have to tell him how you spend your money. I think its okay, especially since he just spent 700 on his kid's plane ticket, and I assume he's probably spending at least a couple hundred on presents.

 No, he is the one that is wrong. He ignored your request time after time and you waited and waited for him to do what he said he would do. cuto's to you for standing up for yourself. He would just have to be mad.

Absolutely not!  Stand your gournd.  If your relationship does not work, he will be gone. your parents are yours forever.

Do you work?  Or at you a stay at home mom?

This generally makes the difference, I know, I am going through something similar
