    Cigars are really the only luxury I indulge in, so when an occasional payment to Cigars.com comes through the budget, Mrs. K doesnt say anything. As long as all the other bills are payed. Trades are nice too.. I like the surprise aspect of them.

    I don't know if this is good or not. But I was giving a cutoff and once I hit it. That's it or else. Don't know what the or else is because I only tread the line. But don't go over it, lol....

    Wow sounds like you need to either get a woman that doesn't complain or a seperate bank account.
    My wife never questions me about cigars and I never question her about handbags/shoes ect.

    She will slowly open up to it. If she is anything like mine she is scared with the initial cost and potential time commitment(I smoke at the B&M, not at home) but once she sees you are passionate and respectful she is bound to lighten up and let you fully embrace your new hobby. Let me know if you are looking for any particular sticks and we can work out a trade!

    I dont ever get "the look" or any comments at all about what I spend on cigars or liquor or beer . I may spend a lot for 3 months in a row and then go 3-4 months without ordering or drinking anything, and then light it up again . Never any re-marks and she has even bought me cigars for Christmas and stopped by the liquor store for me if I had to work late . She even encourages me to go to the once a month cigar event with a friend that one of my local B&M hosts . All of our bills are paid on time and some even ahead , maybe thats it .

    Now you guys are giving me a complex of some sort !!! Damn it , if my wife loves me , why isn't she bit_ching about this !!! LOL !!!

    If all of your "must do's" are taken care of (i.e. mortgage, car payments, etc etc) then spend you're money that you work hard for. All that other jazz is for the birds...you cant take it with you when you die, period.

    I know exactly what you are talking about but fortunately my girl doens't have a say in what I buy. I get the look when I start opening that brown box. Also, she understands I work almost all of the OT I can get so I earned that money I spent and it's not hers and all the bills are paid. But it seems no matter when I buy something it always gets delivered on a day I am at work (24 hr. shifts). I'll get a call and she will say "A package came today, did you buy something for me?" knowing exactly what it is. It also helps that we have separate accounts.

    I must be lucky, but I don't get a hard time for my cigar spending... *crossing fingers*

    I don't even want a list or want to know. My wife gets upset about packages coming and going when it gets to excess. For the most part she is cool with it though. If I ever sat down and looked at figures or saw it on paper I might not like it so I will just keep pretending as long as I can.

    exactly... that's why I am officially requesting to be in your cigar will. LMAO

    but seriously, that's good advice. Don't be stupid... pay the bills first... but then reward yourself (and your woman) with some of life's finer things.

    I get the feeling that I will be rowing that boat with you. I got the "Holidays are coming up and we need to save money for the kids Christmas" talk yesterday. It is all the because of the cigar sprint sale in my house. I watch it like a TV show.
