LOL, you poor fellas. My wife even helps wax the boat










The only caveat is if I run over 80 with her in the boat, I get a very sore left shoulder!!!!!

My wife is pretty good with my sickness......she doesn't mind the time and money invested.....she realizes it is my passion......although she doesn't know the actual cost but has an idea........I just have to understand her passion for bags, shoes, diamonds and dresses.......sometimes when I am shelling out for a pair of shoes I do ask her why I have to support both our passions ....WTF....?? The only thing she does bi**h about more and more lately is the safety factor of High Performance Boating...... being a father of one now, and a second on the way I do understand where she is coming from.......

I buy a lot of toys and the above is pretty much how it works in my house as well. It's my money so she doesn't really care. Although mine sees it coming (the research for weeks ahead of time on the internet) and is not at all surprised when another car, boat, bike, truck, etc shows up at the house. When one does, I just have to make sure the honey-do list is up to date before the new toy arrives so she doesn't have anything major to ***** about. Typically, she's really good about it as she knows these are the things that make me happy. Then again, I think she just accepted it a long time ago as she knows how I am and there's not a damn thing she can do about it anyway.

Like SG said, in exchange I never say a single thing when she comes home with XYZ, goes out to eat with her friends, or goes to the salon every week. I know those things aren't a drop in the bucket compared to what I spend on toys every year... and besides, she's too frugal to spend big money of the crazy expensive designer crap anyway.

There are certainly worse habits you can have. My wife never complains about money or time spent on the boat. I think she pisses away more $$ on stupid chit than I do on boating.

I used to have it made, everything for the boat was "Like a hundred bucks or so". Until she actually started working for a boat dealer and when she started it was like "Holy crap I can't believe what people spend on these things". Now she comes home and says "So the guy brings in $9000 in cash so we can get started on his boat, I told him we'd see him next week with another stack."

On the up side I get a really good price on parts and they show up on the kitchen table

Seriously...I think it is all about making sure she has all the things she wants out of life as well...its all about balance.
