My Sister in Law said my wife was marrying me for my money so by the time we got married I was broke. Gave it all away.

I'm fairly well fixed financially but grew up poor in a one parent home. I started working when I was in grade school and learned to squeeze a nickel. 
Now that I'm retired I spend a lot less than I used to and I didn't spend much then. My wife shops at thrift stores and won't buy anything that's not on sale.

My kids, on the other hand, all have big screen TVs, i-phones, fancy cars, etc. but they are always broke. They never want to wait and save for a big-ticket item, just put it on the credit card.

My kids and their spouses fight all the time and my wife and I haven't had a real fight in over 15 years. 
So, money isn't the problem. Living within your means is.

Sounds as though he's trying to tell her what to do with the money.  Serious, bad mistake.  It's HER money, and if she wants to piss it away on worthless kids, that's her problem and has nothing to do with them as a couple.

My wife and her sisters inherited a bit when a parent died, and my wife asked me what "we" should do with her share.  I suggested that she spend it all on jelly beans and load them into a dump truck, then back it out onto a pier and dump the load in the water to see how big a splash it would make.  She got all huffy for a moment, saying I just wasn't taking it seriously, so she wouldn't ask me again.  "Perfect!" sezz I.  She started laughing and all was forgiven.  She made her own decisions about the money and had a few wrangles with her sisters. But I backed her every step of the way, never questioning her decisions, and made her really happy with me in the process.

Turns out she's a darned good money manager and still has the money, making it grow along the way. Meanwhile her sisters have frittered away every cent they got.  I'd be on the fritter list too, truth be known.  But now she's got lots of confidence in herself and her decisions and I've got a very happy wife.  Who could ask for more?  That's better than anything I could have bought with the money.

I inherited a bunch of money once. Went through a Church to give to the poor. Found later the Pastor had paid off the Church with it. After that me and him didn't have the same relations and gave me a sour taste about the Church as beliefs.

Most big charities spend 35%-60% on advertising, salaries, and fancy desks etc. I never donate to them. I try to find someone locally who had something bad happen and give the donation to them. 
I don't trust organized religions. Some of them drink blue Kool-Aid.

My wife will be inheriting a good pile over the next 3 years, her money and she is an excellent manager, I am not. There won't be any fights about it and she will be financially independent of me so win all round.

I was the foreman for a small farm equipment shop in Arvada Colorado in the late 60's, for extra money I would make the 4AM run to Purina Mills in Denver to get 2-3 tons of feed each day and be back in time to open up. 

A loading dock friend (Scotty) would always have a story about his new wife (been married a half dozen times - min.). He comes over to me at the loading desk and says "Buck, this new wife may not work out brother. Sent her to the store and she came back with 4 bottles of gin, 2 cases of beer and a dozen donuts". I'm just staring at him then he says "What the hell are we going to do with all those donuts". The desk clerk went nuts and I couldn't stop laughing like everyone that heard him, crazy times at Purina Mills.

Ok I know a couple that is married mainly for money.

Their Son the other night went to a Club and found his Dad there dancing with another woman.

I said something to my wife. She told me the way it is they have to depend on each others income to pay the Bills, so they live this way. Just sad.

It would be nice, but not earth shaking.
My wife and I are comfortable with our financial situation because of her management of our retirement savings. There were some tight money times and that always causes strains in the relationship, but she held to her ways in setting aside money for the future. Thank goodness that I didn't take the roll of money manager. I don't like thinking about money, reading about money, or planning about money. If I have enough for birthday and holiday presents, hobbies (within limits) with a a few bucks left over, I am satisfied.
A load of money coming in would not change much. It would let us help out our son and daughter-in-law  more, maybe paying off their mortgage. It would allow us to buy a house and property up in the mountains as a retreat (with a shooting range behind the house and an enclosed run for our Greyhounds).

Always has, always will - good old true colors. My grandfather spent my inheritance, family owned a 1,500 acre farm near Penn State and a small town (homes and stores) all rented out. As Pap needed money he would sell one of these places, don't think he ever had a full time job if it meant physical labor, just spent the family inheritance. New truck and cars, whatever he liked.  Damn him, I missed out on that experience ....  pale  scratch

That would just delay the sales for 2 generations until you were able to.  Wink

I'm all for eliminating inheritances. If you made it, you get to spend it. Let the next generation do like you did and make their own way.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to do that. I grew up poor and never got out of the habit of not borrowing money and pinching a quarter. Therefore when I die my kids will inherit the farm, my old office building, and a couple of lots along with what money my wife doesn't spend  after I die. 

I'm sure it will ruin them since they borrow and spend like it's going out of style. They'll just blow it all in less than 10 years.

Ok show how money is on a Marriage. Not a lot of money but last night I won $400. My wife walked up and took the money out of my hand. I told her give me $40 for the Church at least.

I was very mad about the way she did it and I told her. She give me the money back. Later I told her I didn't mind her having it but didn't like the way she did. I took $40 for the Church and $20 for me, give the rest to her I was happy.

I don't know I was focused on her. She should know by now. I gave away a bunch of money one time over 30 years ago because of her.

Her mom got mad at me there one time because she didn't win.

Ok unexpectantly finding out. This woman asked my wife if she could borrow $500? My wife said yea right! The woman said you don't know? What? Your Husband is wealthy.

I went to my wife right off I knew she knew I could buy any Boat I wanted. Ongoing Joke with us last couple months. She said a Boat would be a waste of money because I would only use it a couple times a year.

So now my wife knows. I'm still me. I told her I will be happy with a New Pair of Work Boots and couple pair of Bibs. She says can we have work done on the House? Yes go ahead. Crazy woman came up with more stuff than original but that is ok.

We shall see.

Yes we've considered Camper because mainly of Bed Bugs but we have our Tent and enjoy it unless it is way too Hot or Cold.

We had a couple of Campers and I sold them. We now have our House and a Cabin 75 miles away on a Major Lake actually it is by 3 Lakes plus around 100K acres of Public Hunting Land. Have considered buying Hunting property but with our age and my health decided against it. 

We have went on Hunting trips using our Tent and enjoyed it. We was thinking going into Bear Country and my wife is worried about using the Tent, I'm not sure if this is a Concern?

Not to side track this very interesting discussion but some of us are blessed. Shocked

Long ago I came into a large amount of poverty; and the great thing is that NO ONE comes to my door wanting a share.  lol!

All seriousness aside, looking more and more like we'll be moving to Maine sooner rather than later.  I'm decades past tent camping & hiking but sure do look forward to a bit of hunting up there.  And black bears don't worry me; I still laugh about that fat blacky that walked right up in front of our faces - friend and I sat together on the ground looking for deer - just to say "HOWDY".  affraid

I asked my wife if she wanted to pay off our Bills? she said why they will all be paid off this year as is.

She just started Full Time on her Job and likes it because 10% of the time is a Major Adrenalin rush. Today was her Birthday and day off but she still went in for 3 hours to do some computer work.

Had a Cute Young Blonde all of a sudden very interested in me. Like I told my wife I'm 65 years old and not stupid.

Oh well she knows after 35 years, so far all the same.

Poverty when I was young remember being in Bed, Rats run across the Bed, jump out, step on Roaches. And had to steal food.

Was up in Maine back in '85. Like it, I also like Minnesota.

Back in the early '80's me and my Ex wife sold a Farm and moved to town because she decided to party more. 9 years before that, we worked and worked the Farm all was cool.

Moved to town our Babysitting and Bar Bill ran at least $400 a week. All this stupidity mess up our Marriage. Told her it had to quit. She didn't want to so I left. Far as I'm concerned I'm happy and so is she.
