my wife and I are finally moving in together (long story, don’t ask) and today we were discussing finances.
Now between the two of us, I have more bills and all that and have a pretty good grasp of all my bills.
My wife on the other hand doesn’t have any bills presently but saves her money like crazy. She’s also not the type of person to make random purchases or anything major for herself.
We were discussing the process for moving in, discussing a rental property Ive been working towards and so forth when she asked about getting a gaming console that costs about $800. She had stated she will use her own money
Now we will already have one that, though not brand new, can do the job well enough.
I told her that I’m not on board with that idea because once she and I are together I’ll need her help to manage the bills. And since she will not work for a bit it’s important to conserve as much as possible. Since the whole movie alone will cost us quite a lot. Which I will need her help on.
She immediately became distant and upset even after I explained once she works full time and we are financially secure then put money aside for yourself or we can joint the savings and pay together but it’s too risky to try and do this until such a time.
