Wow. Does he realize money does not grow on trees?

Just tell him straight up that he can want in one hand and shiat in the other and see which one gets full first.

First of all, stop accepting his lavish gifts. Second, give him nothing more than a six pack of tube socks. Not good socks, either. Go to the nearest outlet mall and snag some irregulars.

Don't.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about this. You'll have to keep buying him what he wants, no matter how expensive it is.

For example, last year he spent over $20K on gifts just for me

Make a thousands-of-dollars donation to a charity, in his name.

Get pregnant. Having a kid will set you back about $285,000 over 18 years. That's $15.6k/ year you just gave him with the birth of a kid.

I'm skeptical she fully explained herself to her husband.

Assuming she did, she just has to decide whether she wants to go along with his wishes or push the issue and buy only what she wants.

Wife and I have been together almost 30 years.   A few years ago we mostly quit buying each other presents for xmas.  If i want something, I can go buy it.  If she wants something she can buy it.   To keep from hurt feelings and wasted money now we just plan ahead.  A few years ago we bought a new adjustable bed, Last year we turned the bonus room off our bedroom into the laundry room, this year we had a skylight put in our bathroom (no window).    So its something we both can use/ enjoy.    We still get little presents ($200 limit) for each other, but I dont get going broke on the holidays for shiat you dont need.

Have a spine?

Or just give him divorce papers for christmas

Sell all the things he's bought you and use the money to get him a hooker and some blow. Keep the rest for a pool boy for you. It's what God would have wanted. Ask the Falwells.

Smackledorfer: I'm skeptical she fully explained herself to her husband.

I assume it was a 2 sentence conversation consisting of:

"Hey, why don't we tone down the Christmas gifts this year?"

"What? NO! I love the gifts!"

Free WillTM and Common SenseTM.

Both are mystifying concepts to - oh let me pick a number - 70 million idjits?

Divorce.  The gift that keeps on giving.  Pay once, never pay again.  Since he makes more than you, you might continue to get money from him.

An old girlfriend of mine pulled that shiat on me on our first christmas together. I had gotten one of the items she wanted at a significant reduction since I knew the owner of a shop where they sold it.
Long story short, once I told her about being able to find the item cheaper, she made a stink about how I "owed" her the difference. I was out of there January 2nd.

I think our second year of dating, Mr Ujest brought me a wrapped hockey stick as a present.  He used it later in the week for playing.  We've been married 29 years this coming May. We're romantic like that.
