Maybe we should start another thread about things we've purchased on the sly without consulting your significant other. My first computer ($1300 386 proc 8 gig HD), surround sound system, VCR (1984 $650!!), PS3 (but it's also a blu-ray player..!), JBL speakers while on my first Med cruise... Another thread or just put a wooden stake in this one?

Nothing for me, unless you count the hooker twins in Fargo...

Back when my wife and I first got married, we agreed on a set amount each month that we could both spend on whatever we wanted. Each month, that amount was automatically swept into each of our respective bank accounts that we set up. Over the years we have periodically increased the amount for inflation. It has kept peace in the house, as both of us know that that is "our" money to do with as we please but that it's no more or less than the other one gets.

I highly recommend this strategy. It makes my annual guys trip to Vegas much less controversial!

Everyone is different and so are relationships. My wife and I can't understand how marriages work when people are sneaking purchases behind each others backs, but it apparently does. It just doesn't work for us. If my wife and I did that to each other, our finances would be a mess and we'd have trust issues. If that's not an issue for you, then that's awesome.

Please don't misunderstand my confusion as to how this works for other people as saying they can't or shouldn't do it. I'm not here to tell you how to live your life. I'm just sharing that it's confusing to me how it works.

That's not a purchase. You were just renting!
