Single to Double

My hubby has been a single man for a long time, for how many years of living alone and never been married. He was used to do whatever he wants, he can stay on computer for long hours; he can spend his money on anything like electronic gadgets that most men likes to buy.

But since he got married with me it’s been a difficult time and adjustment for him because he can't do much especially on spending money for no reason sometimes.  Of course I have my period of adjustment as well as because I came from other country leaning the culture, lifestyle and traditions. Living a single life is really very much different than a married life. My hubby was time to time coping up the life he has before and focus on our married life. He likes electronic gadgets and updating what is new in the market or trying to upgrade his old stuff especially in computers. Sometime he is not telling me what he was planning to buy regarding computer matters, because he know I won’t allow him to buy if it’s not a priority expenses or not really needed. He just tells me when he bought them already which sometimes annoy me, but I just try to understand as long as beneficial to us, like last 3 weeks ago he told me we had a new printer “I said how come what happen to the printer we have” he said we almost run out of ink which is getting expensive, so I just bought a new printer that has free ink in a package deal. I don’t bother on that matter because I know he has a point, so no comment only. He even showed me the receipt (looks like an Epson receipt printer) to prove that he doesn’t spend much on the printer.

I just always told my hubby that we are going to save and be stable financially for the things we plan to invest and only buy the necessary things we need, after all we can buy some luxurious things we want in life. It’s good because he is learning and thinking first before he makes a move of spending money

Good luck. I trust you can work together as a couple and keep your finances in order. Today that part of life is most difficult. Sometimes old habits are hard to break. Blessing to you both.

What a real and felt entry this is. Moving about 3,000 miles into another country on my own, much I could relate to.
May time and life continue to treat you all kind.
