    yep – me – this is one of the best episodes ever! they are all great and say so much to me personally – but this was so honest and hit home all over – so many uncomfortable buttons for all married couples i think – money can be such an anxiety issue in a marriage and one that needs to – i think – be worked on a continuing basis or you can be always fighting or feeling belittled – especially now when things are sooo bad financially all over – in little and bid ways! ! i have always paid for my own “stuff”(extra usually little stuff when i had it – when i was working!) because we just didn’t have the extra finances or any credit cards! – but i felt guilty for spending any of my own money when i did work because i felt my husband would just disapprove which has been a deeper issue with me as a person for as long as i can remember! (daddy issues perhaps??) anyway – other story other episode – but my point is that i think hiding spending – or doing and spending for yourself lets say i think and the feelings attached to it for me or other women – may say so much more about us and how we feel about ourselves as women -???? now that we have kids it has changed everything in terms of our money issues/arguments – he understands spending “our” money – now that he calls it as i am not working – and home with my 2 toddlers – and i am very reluctant to buy anything extra for me – because it’s just not the time – but talking about it all has been so helpful in our marriage – he gets it more – slowly but surely! and it’s so true about men and the big ticket items – the TV (the kids will love it!) and the golf clubs!? that’s his “spa day! that comes every now and then these days! so i acquiesce a little – it’s a give an take, right?????
