I used a spare time activity three years ago that generates about $5,000 in yearly income, that we reserve in a separate bank-account. My partner asked, “what exactly are you saving that money for? ” I said maybe a car that is classic helping with a family group reunion ( back at my side), etc. She responded, “We have to be regarding the page that is same just how it gets spent because 50 % of it really is mine. ”
Once I reached away to my son for his understanding, he sided along with her because (legally) 1 / 2 of the things I have is hers. I have not a problem consulting along with her on a significant spending taken from our other cost savings, but with this one I feel this woman is controlling and petty. Your ideas?
