I think that would probaly be a good idea to each get our own accounts and than have our shared one. She rather spend money on vacations I rather spend mine on toys.

I find as soon as I start earning money with my toys, the Mrs. doesn't complain as much. Also, I think she just likes to see me happy.

Works everytime.
Nothing like a camercorder forum delving into one of the world's Great Debates. Hard to resist.

Suprisingly, many of us may underestimate Steven's suggestion above but, in truth, there is no exaggeration (or truth of beauty & love) too great to say to a woman: You know, "climb the hightest mountain, swim the deepest sea.."

Plus, Patricia's idea of three checking accounts is rock-solid. Many disputes are often about Money, no matter how you disguise them. Unfortunately we're all - certainly -- Not Rich...so the idea of Making Money with your camera, in reality, might be a good selling point.

Alas -- I come to my own consideration that ANYTHING you do On Your Own, -- ergo Not Spending Time with your beloved spouse -- can cause resentment.

Of course, when in Love everthing is wonderful and there are no cracks on the wall; but when things are more tense there are cracks and flaws everywhere.

Good luck on workin' it out. There's an old Blues song: "Cheaper to Keep Her."

LOL!

My gf is SUPER supportive so I am definately lucky, with that said I buy and use all this costly equipment for the love of the process itself and for the money (I just cannot justify taking the money I make/save from my day job to pay for this stuffs). If there was no money involved I do admit I wouldnn't be purchasing all these amazing ($ EXPENSIVE) toys.

Well my A1 should be here by the time I get done with work. I think it's going to be a very long day. I just want to get home and try this thing out. I'm just hoping that they don't try to deliver it the the two hours no one's going to be home today.

Murphy's law says that's what will happen.

You can never monitor UPS too much. I'll leave it at that.

Well it's sitting at my house waiting for me to get home. Now I just need to find something to pass the next two hours quickly. Hmm what to do. Maybe read this board some more while I'm supposed to be working.
