    Default Help, my wife wont stop spending!

    I left my permie job last year during the onset of the recession to gamble on getting a long-term contract, with more money...

    After a month on the bench - my luck came in and taadaa i landed a cushdie number - 7 months later im still here trying to stash the cash, but my wife keeps spending it?!

    I havent saved a pennie from this contract and im worried next year, im gonna be benched?!

    I ask you CUK - How do you handle le wife and finances?

    Choose carefully in advance, if you married a spender you are stuffed.

    She obviously doesn't have enough cooking, cleaning and ironing to do. Keep her chained to the kitchen sink and she won't have time to spend your money

    My mate has the same problem and when giving her a new credit card once said 'now remember darling, that's a limit - not a target'

    I would never tell her but my Mrs is pretty good on the spending front. She knows she'll be sent back to work if she spends too much. I had a lucky escape from marrying a shoe obsessed spender.
