Wife wants expensive purse

Oct 13, 2019 144 Comments

Wife wants a $2,000 purse for her birfday.

I grew up a poor SOB and have a hard time justifying the purchase. Also I’m currently the only breadwinner and this doesn’t help with FIRE. Am I the asshole?

    You can be cheap like TechLead and then get divorced. You’d also lose half your net worth that way. You have to decide whether it’s worth it.

      TechLead tried to compensate by buying 2k purses and stuff. Money is just expected, it's not about being cheap.

      Its probably more to do with living with her inlaws than not getting material goods. Being given expensive presents doesnt fix a damn thing. Like putting gold wallpaper over black mold

  • 2000$ purse only makes sense if it comes with 1950$ in it

    She wants a 2k purse. You'll never get to FIRE.

      That's my point, google. I doubt this will be a one off. On the other hand, maybe she's been super frugal so far and just wants this one fancy thing. IDK OP or his wife

      2k over 60 yrs compounded at 10% is over 600k . The average s&p return. So yeah not a drop if you putting it to good use

    If you are asking this question at all, it means you or your wife never makes expensive purchases often. She wants to splurge once in a while and that is OK if you can afford it. You do know a lot of other women spend much much more on a lot of different things right? From $40 lipstick to hundreds on shoes/dresses/ accessories to skincare/other care treatments and routines (do you know how many get regular, like monthly, facial/wax/haircuts/pedi/mani etc? And cost of them?). Some women are happy with drug store lipsticks ($6) and doing the beauty care routine at home. Just saying. Women are different.

    Don't over think.

  • Does she dote on you and do things only porn stars do? If so then get her a $4000 purse. If not then drop her like a hot potato.
