    I would murder my husband if he bought me a car for christmas... I can think of so many better things to spend money on.

    But I'm lame and kind of hate getting gifts anyways.

    One thing about being single. I just buy my own damn present to myself. Strangely enough, I always get exactly what I want.

    When I was married, she blew all my money on herself anyway. So by the time I was able to buy for the kids and her, I aways just had to go with the whole "I don't really want anything" line, because there wasn't enough money leftover for me to get anything anyway lol.

    Just bought it. A mutual decision.

    Nissan Leaf (all the options) all electric.

    We now own:
    Prius plug-in (for my long commute)
    Nissan Leaf (an urban run-about that we've yet to experience range anxiety)
    Toyota Sienna van (for when the Leaf doesn't have the range, or we need the hauling capacity).

    With the solar panels, the prius and the leaf..........transportation costs have never been lower for the family.

    Holy crap! lol, I know what your talking about for sure.... Though I'm not the spender... It makes me sooo mad now that I thought about it.. I bought my wedding band because he "didn't have the money" and his trucks, his tools, his clothes...(shared acct) yet.. I didn't get a damn thing for my brithday!! ugh.. not even a fricken card... It's not even the spending that makes me mad.. it's just the thought..

    anyways I'm done complaining lol.

    Do people actually surprise their spouses with a car for Christmas? I mean, does that ever really happen?

    I suspect my wife would be miffed that she wasn't involved in the decision process. Seems just a little presumptuous.

    I've bought my wife a few cars for her birthdays. Not that I'm romantic or anything.

    She just seems to break them in mid-summer for some reason.

    And if I'm the one buying the car - she better be nothing but appreciative. If she wants an input, she can buy her own car.

    Separate bank accounts, huh?

    Do you at least let her out of the kitchen to get a little sunshine occasionally? Maybe to the mailbox and back (but only after her chores are done)?

    My dad did it to my mom once.

    But yeah, I'd be like your wife. I'd want to be involved in something big like that.
