I have to admit, saying's like "I slipped one past her, I put one over on my Wife, My Wife say's I can buy..." I mean, man., you have got to be kidding, Do you earn a salary? Do you consider yourself a responsible person? Why would one adult need another adult's permission to do anything? If your holding a decent job, know what your bill's are and pay them, and have disposable income left over, why do you need to ask your Spouse if you can buy something? Does your Wife need your permission to spend money? Maybe I'm in the minority, but my Wife and I split mortgage payment's, Children's College tuition, and household expenses for 35 years and have separate checking and savings accounts. She wanted a new car. she bought it, she didn't "Ask my permission". I bought a fishing boat, not a rowboat either. I didn't ask permission. I bought it. I certainly wouldn't ask her if I could buy another gun, she'd look at me like I had grown another head. Maybe we are turning into a nation of wimp's or reverting to teenager's when we Marry.
