Re: Asking the wife for permission

One thing that did stick out is the constant reference to asking the wife for permission to buy some new hardware as if she were an ogre or something. Just a thought...
I didn't see a single reference to asking for permission. The writer refers to discussing an expensive purchase with his wife before making the decision to spend their joint money, which is an absolutely essential component of any well balanced marriage. Your spouse is your financial partner as well as your life partner, and as such should be part of all major spending decisions. All major spending decisions should be joint ones.

If you really believe you can be in a relationship with someone without sharing power and responsibilities with them, you're in for either a succession of unhappy relationships, or some painful emotional growing up which is evidently overdue.

I suggest a major attitude adjustment; grow up a little, you're not ready for an adult relationship yet.
