Never been an issue nor will I ever make it one.
There are bigger issues to deal with, more important matters to solve than ask my wife on a purchase which clearly is something that would make her happy.
a little off topic but a quick history on my reason:
my wife and i dated for 9 years straight before i proposed. married for 3 years now and its been a wonderful 12 years. i was 19 when we met; 19 and dead broke. working at a clothing retail store chain to save up for college. i was accepted to a great university hours away from nyc. she automatically transferred schools so we can have an easier relationship.
she graduated, i still had a year left. she supported me financially and pushed me to pursue all my dreams. when i graduated she got me a suit, shoes and watch for future job interviews. i was unemployed for close to 2 years and she fully supported me in every aspect possible. my kenneth cole watch is worth and means more to me than my platinum rolex day date.
today we are both very successful. successful in both marriage and careers. from day one i promised myself that i will get my wife anything she wants and likes. she does not openly ask me for anything since she is capable of making her own purchases but i make sure she enjoys the finer things in life (travel, designer clothing and bags, etc...).
a good friend of mine is a divorce lawyer. joking he said how will i split our assets if we split (he asks all friends since he likes to hear different scenarios). i told him this without hesitation"
"i will give her everything. the cars, properties, accounts, all the assets. i slept on a park bench in the past i don't mind doing it again if it means she will be comfortable."
my friend said in all his years as a divorce lawyer he has never heard anything like that before.
people may give me looks when i present my wife with expensive luxuries or when i tell a sales rep to wrap up anything she likes. i could care less how the haters react. i came from nothing her support made me who i am.
