 Ok so my DH just asked me to give him $500 cash for his xmas present so he could take it to the casino and play slots all day with it. I just dont know if i can do it because i know how much stuff $500 could buy him and i know its materialistic but still. I dont mind the $500 part i mind what his is going to do with it. So could you do it? Could you give your DH that much just for him to go gamble?

Probably not! I mean if he wanted the $500 for like a new car stereo (which I know he wants) then I'd consider it, but not the casino!

Definitely NOT to gamble it all away.

No.

And I don't believe in cash being a present. Regardless of how the person is going to spend it and I sure as hell do not agree with gambling that much cash.

No. But then again we never go the casino and we don't gamble so that wouldn't be an issue in my marriage.

 Hard to answer because DH would never ask for money to gamble.  I would have a hard time giving him cash as a gift because if there was something he really wanted or needed, I'd tell him to just get it.  To me, the holidays are about getting someone something special that they might not buy for themselves.

If we could afford it I would. Mine wouldn't play slots though, he plays cards and usually does pretty good whenever we go, which is only like twice a year.

Ha ha! No....With $500 I can Xmas shop for a whole lot of people and not support a bad habit.
