You don't know how fortunate you are! Because many (most?) men have the exact opposite problem. The grass is always greener I suppose...

Eating out probably is my biggest waste. I am addicted to sushi and there is this killer place walking distance from my house. Saki, sashimi, lobster rolls? It's like crack.

My divorce advice is really marraige advice. Don't do it. But... since we know that love is real, i guess.. lol here is my advice.

Get two attornies. One for you, and one for your bride. Hammer out a reasonable prenup. Don't try and get the woman to sign it without her own attorney. Also don't let your attorney advise her and do it by him/herself because its a conflict when challeneged in many courts. Then lastly don't make it unreasonable. Don't say she gets nothing. Say she gets X amount but make it like 20% instead of the half she will get if prenup gets tossed. Also don't make the mistake of handing her the prenup as she is getting ready to walk down the aisle. Some states stuff like this flys but in many prenups done under above conditions getting tossed.

Doing a report, thanks in advance.

We spent $5,000 on alcohol last year. That doesn't count at a bar or at a show or on vacation... just at home.... that's probably wasteful, I won't drink swill Bourbon or bad wine.

We spent $12,000 on vacations, that is probably alot, but we did get away from 6 weeks last year.

Other than that my wife is the money thritfy chick I have ever met. We don;t have kids and live in a house that woulfd fit in many people's dining room, but we sapre no expense on fun!

Videogames and books. I can spend hours in a bookstore just browsing, and walk out after spending $50 to $200 a pop. Happens about once a month. Games...I'm always going to buy games. Just how it goes. I have 25 PS3 games at $60 a pop. Then the PSN DLC stuff.

Expensive hobby, but **** it. I do what I want.

I would say this is exactly what I spend on myself if anything. I actually don't splurge at all on myself very much, mainly my kids.

My girlfriend is a gamer also though, so I never catch **** if I want a new game...normally the reaction is "you got two, right?"

Man i waste money on alot of stupid crap.

Broncos playoff tickets, DJ Williams jersey, food for my kids.

I really only have one hobby, i buy the hell out of comic books. My wife reads a couple, but i dont drink, smoke or spend money on anything else not related to her or the kids, so i get a pass. It is my one litte guilty pleasure. That and blow.

I buy clothes as needed, food as needed. Utilities, car maintenance, ect. But games and books are the things I'll splurge on. Next few weeks Im getting Sim City and the new Tomb Raider.

I got smart after dating some Seriously High maintenance girls growing up in Hamilton County here in Indiana. Women here expect Money to be spent on them and by them

Meeting a gorgeous woman who was rational, thrifty, ate real food and Worked out was a God Send. I knew she was special right away, but it took a few years to see how damn Loyal she was too. That was the sealing deal. I do not worry about her at all. I support her and she supports me. She got a guy who talks to her at a real deep level and I got a woman who understands its not all about her.

I've got a rock solid woman, and I am not going to screw that one up!
