To start off, I’m a self employed nail tech. I finally grossed more than 10 grand. Yea for me!!! My husband had a fit. He was sure that he was going to have to “bear my tax burden” . Well I went to my aunt, who is a business accountant and a tax preper ( lord im butchering the words) any way..... I am getting a return!!!! Another yea for me !!!! So it makes me wonder how many men out there treat their marriages like a business arraingement or a business contract. What happen to loving through the good and bad times. He broke my heat the other night. And on the heels of my grandmothers death. Im still head deep in mourning. This is a hard one to forgive. Any one have comments or words of advise?

    • Hmmmm.... where to start and what to say.....  

      For ME I would go ahead and give my hubz a swift (and hard) kick in the a***** for being so dang insensitive. As for our taxes.....well that was part of the marriage vows we took......
      I won’t pretend that we have/had it easy since most of our marriage I made more than him and he wasn’t comfortable with that. Now that I don’t work (and he has to support my $26 mascara habit) he now appreciates all the hard work I did.
      Now I work hard at home taking care of all his comforts and occasionally remind him that I could go back to work like I used to.

      So don’t give up on your nail biz and don’t back down from your hubz....

    • You are obviously a strong woman, versatile and loving. Those character traits should not be seen as anything other than strength, but occassionally men don’t get it and yes they are intimidated. Do they ever really know what’s best? Sometimes we have to let them think they‘re in controltongue out.

      And yes, some couples do treat the marriage like a business contract, but if you must be a part of it make sure you get ALL yours!

    • That is the way it is suppose to be....for better or worse...thick and thin...but we all know that men have a tendency of changing the rules....I would say stick to your guns...do what you love to do and make money at it.

      2009. Congratulations!  

      I’m sorry to hear of your loss of your grandmother. I still miss mine.
