Newsflash: DH Must Have Sportscar
... except I won't "let" him, even though he's willing to go into $100k debt for anything I want!
Yes folks, that is the arguement. I am ashamed I haven't already separated accounts because DH is obsessed with this sports car and watching numerous YouTube vids about it. It starts at like $55k and DH wants to trade in our almost paid off vehicle and finance the rest. Because, "we can afford it" BUT, if I want to separate accounts, then he CAN'T afford it.
I'm like, do you effing hear yourself? I told him he should get his 2 BFF's to talk some sense into me so I'll see the light about going into debt for a luxury sportscar we can't afford. That won't happen because he'd 1) embarrass himself as he owes one of those friends $5k from before we met, to 2) both those guys have sense in their heads.
I love DH but wonder if he is seriously in denial about being in his mid-50's with zero retirement & minimal savings. We did FPU late last year but everything seems faded compared to DH's lust for the sports car.
Told DH I can't afford his resentments, and they're building up against me. I love my DH and have been managing the money as best I can. I believe you pay bills and debts 1st, stay away from any new debt, pay with cash/ATM or you can't afford it, etc. I'm the Nerd and DH is the Free Spirit, according to FPU.
This nerd is sad, very sad, that her much-loved DH is being a mantrum-throwing jerk. He'a also pissed right now because I asked him if I should put my wallet in our bed, and go sleep in the guest room? Was that bad?!
