I HATE that my dh is the ceapest man alive - RANT!

I just don't understand why he's this way!?! I work a full time job making just as much money as him - yet he still complains about me spending money (and it's really not even that much). I could completely understand it if we were strapped for cash, or if he was the only one working, but it's not that way! We make really good money! We pay all the bills before spending (plus principle sometimes), and he still complains!

Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

Thankfully dh doesn't know anything about our finances. He has no idea what I buy and therefore couldn't complain.

I'm sorry he's like that

Would he be okay with an agreed upon allowance for each of you, or is spending in general(ie groceries costing too much, too much gas, etc)

Re: I HATE that my dh is the ceapest man alive - RANT!

DH is like this sometimes too. We'll go to town and while shopping he'll pick up this and that and then realize how much he has spent a fuss while I try to get things off our list that we need. Oh and lately we have been trying to be real careful cause hospital bills are coming due and our insurance sucks so nothing that we don't need, and he keeps asking me if he can buy this or that motorcycle off craigs list. umm can we say I don't think so, no fun stuff for me no fun stuff for you.

Good luck I can't say seperate accounts work to well either that's what we have right now. DH feels put out cause most of the bills come out of his account, he forgets most everything else comes from mine.

Sorry hijack and rant over.

Re: I HATE that my dh is the ceapest man alive - RANT!

My DH is always asking how much did i spend, he worries about money even though he makes good money.. i thought he would throw a fit when i bought my embroidery machine.. but he was ok about it just asked if i had enough to keep going till he got home the following week.
He has always been like this even when i worked in the same place and made almost as much as him..
