The way my life is set up, the only thing that I'd have to change if she left is that I'd have to sell the house. Money is always a big argument with us (as with most marriages), so it's nothing new.

I make more than her by a long shot, so I buy what I want. I lucky, she keeps her opinions to herself.

With bonuses, I sometimes make close to 2 1/2 times what she does, but my child support takes a HUGE chunk out of that. I've made at least twice what she does for the last 8 years.

Wow. And, yet, you still married again. You just won't learn...

I had a great marriage for ten years, then he had a nervous breakdown and we split. Now he's a crackhead and I won't do it again. My SO is great- without the paper.

Spectre5922....this sounds so much like my life...eerrr...problems i used to have...same thing...my wife didn't want me to get a bike, and i got it..she got mad due to me buying the extras...

I think both of you should cool down and sit and talk, dont do anything "just to her off", it can later come back to you...

Is money too tight that she didn't want you to buy it or the $60.00 issue?

I wouldn't sell mine. I got divorced too, but she had other gripes. if you have no forseeable choice and HAVE to get rid of? make her life every day about anything she loves. all day every day, two feet in her . anything she wants, go off on a rant about it. make her miserable.

sucks dude, my wife doesn't like my hobby being so expensive either. However, she knows it makes me happy. Gotta give and take in somewhat equal proportions. She was after I spent $600 in 1 month for this thing I call riding. I often remind her that I wouldn't be spending so much if I still road the streets (she asked me to quit riding public roads after Matty passed...it scared her silly persay). It doesn't hurt my situation that she spent a "buttload" on Black Friday and most of it was for her, not presents. Did I ? Nope, b/c when it's my turn to spend and she gets I got something to go back to.

Now in my defense, there was an 8 year gap between the two.

Sounds like it's time to make a statement about what is important to you and let her decide what kind of relationship she wants with you. I'd suggest planning a 3 day motorcycle ride to the hill country, maybe Austin too. Let her cry, let her rant, let her mope, let her nag, let her threaten, let her melt down.

Then go take that weekend trip, spend some cash, have a good time. I'll join ya.

When you get home let her decide if she wants to be married to you. If you come home, then obviously it's not that bad for you, right? Cause you chose to come home. Let her decide what she wants in life and then tell her to figure out a way to be happy with her decision, cause you, ultimately, are not responsible for her happiness. Your responsibility is to share a life of happiness together, not get bitched at for the same $60 she probably spends at starbucks each week.

All this assumes you are not an a$$hat yourself to begin with.

hence why you marry someone that has the same interests you do so you don't have to worry about all of this.

Sometimes you just have to figure out what is more important to you. If it's riding, then you probably shouldn't be married anyway. If it's the wife, then hopefully you can have a talk with her a reason with her and come to a agreeable comprimise. Usually these 'differences of opinion' have a lot more behind them than just riding. If it's the money, then agree to a certain amount a month that can be spent on riding. If it's something else, find out what it is and work on it! Good luck!
