By Clark Kent. Every month I open the mail to review my credit card bills and bank statements only to find $300 spent here and $200 spent somewhere else, which I know I never spent money at. These mysterious transactions aren’t a mistake. They are what happens when you have a wife who spends money like a drunken sailor. I love my wife, but she is driving me into the poorhouse with her inability to control her love for shopping.
My advice to TLS readers is two-fold. Men, don’t let your wife just have your credit card without setting guidelines for what she can buy and how much she can spend. Women, please don’t spend exorbitant amounts on a credit card without calling your husband to ask his opinion if you should be spending his money on such-and such items.
