    If you're into guns, watches, whatever, what's your wife/girlfriend into? Or husband/boyfriend?

    My girlfriend is into owning/riding horses. Any time I tell her how much I just spent on a Colt 1911, or a Sig, she laughs. Apparently it's quite the drop in the bucket compared to horses and their vet bills, stables, and accessories. Makes shooting look like stamp collecting, cost-wise.

    How about yours?

    Mine is into arts and crafts. She's been on a tear making these burlap football door hangers and pumpkins. She's making her spending money and enjoys it, and I don't have to participate, lol.

    She likes camping, any lake activity, shooting small guns, and she also makes clothing especially infants through children sizes and styles...

    She has never had a complaint about my gun spending, or my race boat lifestyle... We have a demanding and opposite schedules, and she actually encourages me to do more of what I like and on the flip side I never mention a thing about her sensible spending on things that contribute to her happiness..

    Her other hobbies are " Erik " from True Blood, Hugh Jackman, Will Smith, and old Paul Newman movies... None of which I can compete..

    My wife like to do things that make her happy.

    I like to do things that make me happy.

    As long as my stuff and her stuff don't break us, It works out.

    She and I both consider the practicality of what we want/do, and sometimes it take the other to push to spend the money.

    What's fair is fair.


    It's good to see your spouse happy.

    The only thing remotely close to a hobby my wife does is read ridiculous books. It's great because it's cheap, but it's also frustrating because she is less understanding of me spending money on my hobbies.

    Crafting and scrap-booking . She has her Craft room and I have my home theater...It works out great! She does really remarkable work, and opens the house for her annual Christmas show.

    My wife loves to do arts and crafts. She also loves to make and decorate fancy cakes. When she is not doing that stuff, in her spare time she reads on her Nook.

    Eating, drinking, making little things out of string (she calls it crow-shaving or something like that), reading....that's about it. Seems not a whole lot since her friends starting spitting out babies.

    I am really surprised to be the first one to say this, but my gf hobby is shooting.

    This is one of many reasons i love her.

    One of the reasons my fiancee and I get along so well is that we have many of the hobbies and interests.

    Hers are:

    Video Games
    Wine
    Whiskey
    Cigars
    B Movies
    Baking

    Mine are:

    Video Games
    Wine
    Whiskey
    Cigars
    Shooting
    BBQ

    So except for her bad B movies and my Firearms most of our hobbies are either the same, or overlap nicely like BBQing and Baking.

    Do you have any examples?

    I'm the wife and I also do jewelry. I make more money than I spend. I hope she does, too.
