In some of the posts I see where guys have to "sell the idea" of a major purchase to their spouse. I do discuss major purchases with my wife, but I don't have to sell the idea. If its more than a couple of hundred dollars I talk to her about it to be respectful, but if I really want something she knows I'm gonna get it. Maybe I have so it well because I never spend money frivolously. Like to hear how other guys have it (and gals!).
