Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

My wife likes my statues and even supports the habit, which is just as bad! LOL :P

She collects harry potter stuff and loves horror movies so we get along in our collecting habits.

I try to time it so that the boxes will be there on days that I'm home before her, but it doesn't always work out. She knows that I don't tell her the truth about the prices, so she doesn't ask. We kept our individual accounts when we got married, which seems to work well.

I don't lie but sometimes I wait until the day before or day of arrival. Try to remind her about the value and idea that they can just be re-sold for retail or sometimes more.

Just don't let her hit you with the "value of jewelry" argument. My only rebuttal is that I know an entire community that would buy my stuff for retail or appreciated values. We couldn't easily sling jewelry without researching that entire industry and their various avenues of resale.

I should also add that we work long days and neither one of us tells one another what to do with our money. We save for retirement and rainy days, but we're also aware that we can't take money with us when we bite the dust (Girlfriend of 3 1/2 years).

When engagement ring conversations start to become prominent, clearly there will be a large gap in my collecting.

Always be honest....it can come back and bite you in the a$$. My collection was mostly Bowen...she could handle that because the price for each piece was not that high....since they are no longer in business, I have turned my attention to Sideshow and Prime 1 mostly, with other companies sprinkled in between....hard to hide the prices on the 1/4 size statues these days.....I just buy less.....running out of room anyways.

I'm the king of the castle so it doesn't matter how much the statues cost or whether my wife knows the cost...well, that's what I keep telling myself
