I am a stay at home mom with 2 children and also handles the financials for our family and our company that my husband runs. We have had a previous agreement to discuss any purchases, over 50 or 100 which works for our budget. The other night he dropped 200 on a jacket/hat and instead of hearing my concern I feel he changed the rules by telling me he earned it, he can spend that or 1000 if he feels like. This got heated on both sides. My concern is less about the jacket and more about not being accountable to the boundaries we decided together, the feel of superiority and the general dismissal of my position. I want to be fair but this feels wrong to accept that treatment. Am I just in feeling hurt, should he be able to change his mind without us agreeing on new boundaries and am I unreasonable to expect that? Please help me think this through as we are at an impasse.
