    I’d screen shot it but there are curse words when she told me our balance... She’s a sneaky saver. I swear if I keep pushing, she’ll let me get that Heritage but I’d feel bad... later.

    Get it! Then get her a Peloton for XMas. She'll appreciate the "you need to lose some weight" hint.

    I have my own finances.

    Nobody to ask except my conscience.

    My wife is a one-in-a-million when it comes to me and guitars.

    I'm always buying and selling, and she knows I get a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction from finding dusty pawnshop prizes and turning them into shiny, great-playing works of art.
    And she knows that I drag most of my guitars to this gig or that, so I really am getting good use out of them. (before I invariably sell them)

    Whenever I tell her I am considering buying another guitar, even a pricey new one, she always says, "You work hard for your money. You should have everything you want."

    I'm sort of wondering what she's got up her sleeve.

    :(

    Sure, but when the lumps subside, and the fractures heal, you'll have an absolutely beautiful guitar. That right there is a stunner!

    My wife, the bass player, and I have a rule. Gotta sell some gear to buy some gear.

    Yeah, I somehow end up selling the gear she wants to unload, but it works overall.

    My wife is the same. Secretly saves and grows our account somehow, I have no idea of our finances at all. I tell her that I like a guitar and she tells me to buy it. Love her.
    Been together forever now and are still super happy and in love like teenagers. Seems odd when so many are unhappy.

    I'm happy for both of you, good sir.

    So good to hear about true love lasting this long, and going stronger than ever.

    I handle our finances too. If my wife went out and spent a G on something without at least discussing it with me, not asking, but at least discussing it with me, I’d be upset. It’s just common courtesy. One day I told her I’m going to Atlanta to buy a new Les Paul, she says I gotta take her out to eat while we’re there. It’s give and take.
