The game of the sexes. We were brought up with those standards and it's really hard to change. BUT.....it can be done. Start by telling ;yourself that you don't have to justify. My hubby's hobby is golf and believe me, that can get very pricey. ("Did I just hear you say you paid $400 for that one club?? Well, if it makes you happy, then I'm happy".) Or, you could close the whole conversation down by telling him you are enjoying your long-Corvette.
