Sometimes if I buy something I don't really need he'll ask for the same about of money to buy something for himself.

My hubby has to have everything I have when it comes to being sick.  Like if I have the sniffles, he has the flu, if I have a cough, he has pneumonia.  It drives me crazy.   But when it comes to material things he isn't that way at all.

My man is about as low maintenance as they get. he never buys himself, anything. I hate it. Because hes like he just wants to make sure we have everything that we need first. But that makes me look so spoiled because I get what I want, when I want it. lol So I feel bad. That's why I have to look out for him, and get him things when he needs something or whats something because he wont look out for himself. I just feel so bad sometimes because hes always being all  responsible, and saving and preparoing for the fueture and I tend to think about myself just a bit to much.

hubby's not that way with me.  When I go shopping I usually pick something up for him anyways, like a new t-shirt or something. 

I'm the one that is that way though.  If he goes out, I wanna go out, but do I noooo....lmao

Ditto! He won't buy any even if I tell him he needs new undies.. So when I find a pair with a hole in them I throw them away. So eventually he's like hun, I need some more underwear I can't find any.. lol

sometimes we get things at the same time

either on my birthday, or when he goes to get his hair cut next time, i'll get my hair cut as well.

we tend to go by who needs something, not just "you got one, so i get one too"

typically the only time we do that is when it comes to alone time.... like monday i took our son to dinner with my mom so the husband could be alone, and then last night i went to the casino and got time away from our son..... although i think he gets much more alone time than i do
