    DF my husband has owned 113+ aircraft (not all at the same time). His passion/hobby has cost millions+ so no I feel NO remorse or sympathy whatsoever, and I'd guess there are plenty of PS husbands out there, that like boats, fancy cars, nice watches or whatever so there are probably a heap of long suffering ladies that you should be feeling sorry for not the other way around. It's a myth men don't spend money on luxury items too.

    Uummmm, I earn my own money and how I spend what’s spare has nothing to do with my husband! Why should anyone feel sorry for him? I would never ask him to fund a jewellery piece for me unless it was for a special occasion, like an anniversary. I have reduced the pressure on him by being able to pay half of the household bills, save for the future etc etc.

    Having said that, I won’t be upgrading or changing settings because I’m sentimental and love what I have anyway.

    Same. I’m the primary earner and have paid for all my own jewelry. He does the cooking and most of the cleaning/keeping the house in order. :kiss2:

    I've been the primary earner for many many years, put him through school twice, and always been a full time (over time) working mom. He likes his electronics.

    Woot. Girl power!
    Yeah DH is applying to med school now so if everything goes to plan, all my bling funds will be going towards tuition for at least the next 4 years. And probably selling off a bunch of what I already heave (which I was planning to do anyways). No new pieces for 4 years :cry2: luckily I can just live vicariously through this forum

    You better bet my 40th bday present to myself after all that is going to be epic though!

    Nope. Feel no guilt at all for my bling purchases. Hubby has a car fetish and is looking to put a car lift in our garage for his toys. :think:

    Absolutely not! At my age I'm going to enjoy it and my children can sell it when I'm gone! I rationalize it by - I'm wearing some of the money now!

    I'm with arkieb1 - my husband has plenty of things he likes to spend money on. I haven't ever added everything up but I suspect that at the end of the year, he usually spends as much as I do or more!

    My dh is super generous and loves spending money on both of us so no I don't feel guilty. Lately we have only been spending thousands and thousands on health care for our cats so we have not been spending any money on us at all.

    But not only do I not feel guilty I know my dh and I are lucky to have found each other. We are a perfect match in that we balance each other out. He is outgoing and I am more introverted. He is more optimistic but I am the more practical realist. He is incredibly generous and I am (well used to be) more careful with spending and always liked to get a bargain. Not any more. These days I want convenience and to make life a little bit less challenging and my philosphy these days is if money solves a problem it isn't really a problem.

    Ditto. I'm actually content with my jewelry collection now, and enjoy getting new blingy cars, which he also gets to enjoy! PLUS he has his own expensive hobbies, such as mountain bikes etc.
