    you seem to have missed my point and you haven't answered my question

    if your partner had consistently over time wanted to spend money you wanted to put into the business on something else would it have worked out?
    There's been plenty of occasions where one of us has wanted to buy something and we've had to sit down and crunch the numbers and worked out if it was a) affordable and b) what we *really* want.

    So to answer your questions, yes and it worked out fine.

    1) It's a choice; I am not in Britain. "Pendejo" sounds like some kind of *****y way of saying "okay".

    His actual mandatory expenditure is £655. He pays £60 a week on petrol so it'd be £240 a month.

    Don't mean to nitpick just trying to help
    ah **** skipped the week bit, damn £60 a week...where is he working in London where he needs to travel so far for such a wage? I guess he drives about 30 or so miles each way?

    hThey will earn, then 3 weeks later wonder where it all went. And I know he doesn't spend it stupidly, like getting drunk every weekend...I honestly don't know where it goes.
    What you could do, albeit I wouldn't phrase it like prying, is suggest he do a spreadsheet on what he's spending each week. I did this for a little while to get a real idea of what I was spending, since small £5 type purchases add up if they're very often but you can forget about them.

    so and your partner you have a similar attitude to money - you are happy to sit down and work things through.

    so you agree with me. what a relief that that's settled
