Let say you have 300 bucks right now. Your car need some fix. It's not very crucial, just some scratches on the door that make your car look a bit ugly. It cost you about 300 bucks to have it fixed. Then you just remember you have not buy your wife something special for along time now. You intended to buy her something when you have extra money. What will you do?

The problem is man, I don't think I got that much money to spend :) It's just either one, fixes car or buys wife stuff. That is the rule man :) (at least for this discussion)

well you could always fix the car and take her to a romantic resturant, then when you are suppose to pay for the bil tell her to go out to the car and warm it up. While she does that dine and ditch, lol. Make sure its a resturant you dont ever go to though, that could backfire.

that was a brilliant idea actually. I might give a try. Do you know any restaurants I can easily cheat on them in your area? I prefer Italian or Spanish restaurants. And the nearby Police station at most 10 km aways. Just kidding :)

Easy, buy something special for the wife. Many people put way too much emphasis on the material things. I'll admit, I used to but when you loose everything (do to super typhoons, or floods), one tends to understand and appreciate your loved ones a whole lot more. LOL, besides I'm too cheap to fix something that doesn't affect performance!

I guess you are right. Maybe I have to buy her something first and wait for next time to fix my car. But my car will look ugly though :)

No contest. The wife would get something every time. She is way more important to me than any material object. I'd rather my car was a bit ugly and my wife was happy.

Agreeable. But just like some users had pointed out, sometimes women are very understanding & unselfish that they might prefer us to fix something for the good of the family first.

surely the wife is much more important than a car.A car can be bought still after i struggle for a couple years but a wife is a person who we are facing and living happily with.It is not at tall possible to compare the two things.

Of course, it's not fair to compare wife with car :) But in certain occasion men had to do what men had to do. If I tried to make my wife happy by buying her stuffs, then I realized, silently, she is not happy with the car condition, I might be in trouble too :)

It was just a big scratch. But it was there for more than 3 months now. That is why I think it's time to fix it. then, thinking about my wife, I have a second-guess :)

For me surely, it that would happen, I would prefer to buy my wife a presents, than having my car fix. A gift for a wife ( the thought of it) has no value, her happiness would give a very good peace of mind in the house. That is how important my wife to me.lol

You are definitely right. Happiness is more important than anything. But an ugly car may make you unhappy too :)

Hmmm.. my answer may sound biased coming from a full pledged wife but I believe your wife should come first. If you really intended to buy her something special, go ahead and do it. Your car can wait. Of course you wife can wait, too but don't you like it when she cries for joy because you have bought her something special? Just imagine your wife, her face full of happiness and bliss. Once you do it, you might say to yourself, "I made the right coice.."
