I dunno if I'm overreacting about this or what. As long as my husband and I have been together, 7 years, we've been living together pretty much the whole time too. I've always known he can be a bit stupid with money and just not think about certain things, but I don't know what's going on with him again lately.
He had a dentist appointment yesterday. Just a cleaning and X-rays to get his last 2 wisdom teeth out, supposedly. Well, he comes home and says they want to do some unecessary treatment that's going to cost 1500 dollars. He needs to pay 250 up front before anything is done, then 70 a month until it's paid off. This is AFTER insurance too.
So I am livid he agreed to this without talking to me first, which is what I have the problem with. He's ALWAYS making money decisions without me. We can't just blow 250 bucks on a whim, plus 70 a month for how long? This is what I'm having the issue with here, should I be upset, would you be? He does this crap all the time. I think that much money is worth talking about, especially if it's not NEEDED.
Then, later on, I'm looking over the paperwork the dentist gave him, and it says we need to pay the 250 up front, then 78 a month until it's paid off. So, he just lied to me about the payment.... also, it's almost 1700 dollars for this treatment, not 1500.
I know to some people that's not a huge payment, but for us to rearrange everything in our budget to fit it, it's not an option.
We just signed paperwork to buy a new van, so we have that new payment starting next month, plus insurance and additional AAA for the van.
I just don't understand what goes through a man's mind. Like, you've been bitched at about spending money without talking to me first before, what makes you think I won't get upset now?
To boot, we have to buy ALL new baby furniture for this baby since ours was lost after our 2nd daughter due to a fire, and he just got a speeding ticket too, which he's never had in his life, btw, so this isn't a common occurrence.
I am just adding that this is not about his wisdom teeth. Just to get his teeth out will cost 60 bucks with our insurance. This is about the treatment they want to do to his teeth that is not needed at all. Purely choice. That, and the lying, is what I have the issue with here. He needs the teeth out, no arguments from me.
