He Said/She Said Saturday v.4

Hi all,

This is a meme that my wife Heather ( and I started.    The rules of the meme are simple.  You ask your partner the question of the week and write down their answers as close to word for word as possible.  Then you get to add your version.  Fun is had by all...

Next Week's Question is:
If there was a movie made about your relationship what would it be called, who would play you and your SO and what would the plot twist be?

This week's He Said/ She Said question was:

Do you and your spouse budget plan?  Is one of you the spender?  The saver?

He Said -

Wow, this is a question that could get me owing Heather a lot of money via a divorce.

Heather takes care of the bills, bank accounts and other finances around the house.  This is mostly because if I was in change we would always be fighting.  If I were in charge, we would have a house full of pie charts and bar graphs outlining spending per person per category.  It would probably not make for a pleasant household environment. Heather on the other hand is more ummmm... She is more willing to spend.  She does most of the everyday spending and is the keeper of the day-to-day purse strings.  She does not like me to look at the finances because I get 'carried away' with it according to her.  She tells me, "my role is to make money and hers is to spend it." I guess this is cheaper than divorce.

For Heather's version, click here

If your SO doesn't blog, you are welcome to post both of your answers in the same post ... or just posting your side of the story is fine too... please link it up here:


  1. If I let my husband do the financing around here it would soon spell out disaster. He is not good in math, and if there is a cent difference in the balancing of the bank statement and his records he'd go with the bank's and call it 'balanced'...he doesn't understand that next month it'll still show up. LOLOLOL

    OSPREY's 'catch of the day'...come on over to view a couple of magnificent images of the regal bird if you have some time!!!

  2. She's right and you are right to listen to her. As long as she is spending within your means, then it is silly to get so wrapped up in the details of your money.
