Lol, so happy not to have a husband who feels it is his right to tell me what I should or should not do. That is beyond screwed up. I can't imagine one person having all the power in the family.

DH and I love to eat out. Our weekly budget is $60 but we usually come in under that. Lately we've been getting breakfast on either Saturday or Sunday and going to the Texas Roadhouse for the $7.99 early bird maybe once a week. We also love to shop and do home improvements. For everything that is not a scheduled bill or food we have a $200/week budget. I'm thinking of combining the two budgets so that $200 must cover shopping, home stuff and eating out. OT, but our weekly grocery budget is $100. We could do less but we are both on the Primal Diet and try to eat organic whole foods and grass-fed/free range meats and dairy. It adds up pretty fast!

ETA: Back in January we started bringing out own coffee and lunches to work. That has been great for the budget and diets!

You are absolutely correct! It needs to be a mutual decision. The same would be true if DW just up and decided to quit her job without discussing it as a couple. That would not show being a responsible "partner". We should all be free to make our own decisions, but when you are married important decisions need to be made as a couple with buy-in from both sides. I wonder what DW's reaction would be if I just unilaterally decided that I didn't want to work anymore?
