Statue Costs and Your Spouse

In light of recent discussions with pricing points, I was curious about the married folks here.

How many of you lie to your wife or husband about the cost of a statue you just purchased, in order to justify your collectible habits? How many of you have spouses who are cool with it?

In fact, I have to hide some of my purchases until they show up at our doorsteps... My girlfriend does not warrant the expenses I make for my statues..she says I have too many...but I can't / won't stop

My wife knows. I tell her just in case I die and she can try to get something from them.

I keep an Excell spreadsheet for everything I spend on them.

I have a separate income stream for my own personal spending so it doesn't matter to her one way or the another.

Some people live with their partner. Don't have to be married to them.

My wife knows I spend a lot, just not how much. She is supportive, and all the important bills get paid first, and whatever is left gets spent. She knows that.

Some she knows the pricepoint of, others I tend to alter a bit in price point. I just bought the P1 Darkseid though and I'm not sure if she saw the price, so now I'm doubting to be honest about it or not when (not if) she asks about it...
