and saw the "Marriage Saver" ideas. This one cracked me up:
Marriage saver: Outdoor stove
HE: Likes cooking with cast iron
SHE: Won't let him use cast iron on their glass-top electric stove
SOLUTION: "My husband really wanted an outdoor gas camp stove, so for Christmas I got him one. Now I let him buy as much cast iron as he wishes. It may be extra money, but it is well worth the price if it gets him to cook once in a while!"—
What cracked me up was the "..I let him buy...." Now, I know that a lot of us girls take care of the finances, but I just wonder why an adult needs to be allowed to buy something?
Of course, if finances are tight, purchases should be discussed, but really.
Hubby is NOT my kid. He does not need for me to "let" him do anything.
Maybe others have a different opinion, but this makes me just shake my head.
