Does anyone else feel like everything is a constant battle with your SO?
I feel like everything is an argument between us. Is that normal? Things were never like that with my ex.
Everything turns into a fight because we are so different and he does not agree with a lot of my opinions and decisions. He wants a new boat, I don't agree. He wants a new couch, I don't agree. He wants to spend $1,000 on birthday gifts for his twins, I don't agree. He wants to give his ex one of our older vehicles, I don't agree. He wants to buy his daughter a $3,000 TV for her newly remodeled bedroom, I don't agree. He wants me to pull my children out of the private school that they have been going to their whole lives, I don't agree.
We both have high paying jobs and we do pretty well financially. Most of our shared assets are in my name due to his lovely ex demolishing his credit. He is not very financially savvy himself. He thinks that he works for it and should enjoy it. I think WE work for it and WE have a mass amount of bills to pay.
We disagree about so many things. Is this normal? Like I said my ex and I never bumped heads so much. It is painfully irritating and so very tiring.
