Should He Spend More?

Dave gets ticked with Lisa's husband over how he handles money.

QUESTION: Lisa’s husband makes more than her, and he feels he should be able to spend more. He wants to set up an account where they both put 20% of their own money in for discretionary spending. What does Dave think of this?

ANSWER: I think he’s being a selfish twit! My wife is gentle and forgiving, but if I tried that there would be hell to pay. You’re being a little sweet and he’s out of line. We have one income; OUR income. We have income, we have bills, we have kids, we have a house. You need to have a “we” going on here and not a “me”. He is pretty selfish and immature.
