hi to y'll! i'm newly wed. me and my husband don't really fight, but lately i notice that we argue often and it's mostly have something to do with money. we're both calm and collected when we argue but it's getting a little often and it's making me sad. we do make enough money from our business to support our everyday needs and our little luxuries, but since he's the one doing the budget (which he is really good at) i don't have any idea how much we have alloted to spend, so there are times that when i ask him to get something that he's not approve of he would start talking about bills and stuff like that w/c annoys me bec. the things that i ask for is i think is necessary anyway. i quit job due to childcare and i'll start looking for a job when my baby's old enough to be left with a nanny.but for the meantime i'll just have to suck it up. any advise? specialy from married ppl out there?

Even if your husband is good at budgeting, do involve yourself at how he is allocating your financial resources for your expenditure. Even if you have stopped working you still have a right to participate in this exercise. But lets not start talking about rights or duties. I believe that if you involve yourself in the financial planning as a couple you can understand betteryour husband's decisions. Or perhaps you can give better ideas and allocate your resources better.
