Re: Hoping I'm not the only bad person out there ...

I just dont think that this is good.  I think you should tell your wife that you have a so called "mad money" account.  If she is secure within herself she should be ok with that.

If you want to get a credit card for guy stuff, you should tell her that you're going to get one, for guy stuff. Again, if she is secure within herself she should be ok with that.

 

Financial infidelity is bad business. You are setting your marriage up for failure if you try to live a secret financial life on the side.
