my hubby knows my addiction to bags and shoes, and clothes. He was brought up to be a frugal man and only spends money on necessary items. Since we met, dated and got married, he would always spoil me on items that I lust after, whether he agrees if it's a good way of spending money or not. He, however, loves all my BV items. he said they are pretty and nonflashy like those logo conscious brands. This morning he told me he had a nightmare on bags-particularly on the bag he bought me as a push present. He is just amazed that how women could be so addicted to bags. And the words come out of his mouth is usually, "Honey, how many more bags do you really need?" He is at a point that he is being more understanding now. He knows that I have an uncurable addiction and he is going to live with it. At least I don't question his addiction to Wii, PS3 and frequent trips to BestBuy so that's his transition...Is your SO like him or you are fortunate to have one that supports your addiction all the way?
