Why I Love My Wife

My wife is in charge of the family finances, mostly because she has a knack with budgeting and debt reduction that I lack.  We both agreed on a pretty straightforward budget that includes a bi-weekly “allowance” for each of us to use for non-family essentials (entertainment, lunches, etc.).

So today I go up and say, “I know you’re going to laugh at me, but could I get an advance on my next allowance to get Civilization V?”

She makes a face.  “No.  You want to know why?”

I sigh, ready for a lecture about our budget.  “Okay, why?”

“Because if you want it, it’s yours.  You don’t need to get an advance or anything.  Enjoy!”

And she gives me a kiss and trots away.

That is why I love my wife.

  1. Cute. I always feel bad for the guys I work with that would like to play EQ2 or other games, but they get this disapproving look from their wives.

  2. be careful not to make her regret it though! Civ V will test your resolve. It is so difficult to not take just … one … more … turn…

  3. That’s great Syp! Though from my experience when my wife does that, it’s cause she has gotten herself something and she wants to soften the blow when she tells me. Though 9 times out of 10 I really didn’t care. 😀
