Shopaholic Wife – Help!

Dear Robin:

My wife and I have had the same fight for years and I am becoming very resentful of her because nothing ever changes. In a nutshell, my wife is a “shopaholic.” She seems to be unable to stop spending money and it is often on really stupid things.

For example, when I left for work this morning she was outside decorating the front door and yard with the 100s of Halloween items she has purchased over the years. Don’t even get me started on her obsession with Christmas crap and expensive antiques which just go into the basement or garage because our house is already full.

Readers, I am vacationing for a few days in an undisclosed location with Mr. Patience and Understanding as we celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary.  


I am also doing a re-write of the final chapters of the book, so bear with me as I give you another re-run.  

This was one of my earlier blogs so many of you may have missed it.  Click below for the full blog as I explain to this poor bastard just how screwed he really is:

Money Issue are Ruining My Marriage!

I like reading the old stuff because it illustrates the progress I’ve made as a writer over the past nearly two years.  I hope you enjoy the blog and can remain patient (and understanding) as I enjoy a few days of relaxation and finalization of the book.

Divorce by Design: How to Split Without Losing Your Mind, Your Money or Your Kids is really coming together and I can’t wait to share it with the world.  Reading about the diasterous divorce case in Michagan last week (Insanity in the Divorce Courts) compounded my resolve to finsh this work and show the divorcing public there is another way.

Please continue to share, subscribe, and support this blog.  I have some very exciting news to deliver soon and I can’t wait for all of you to celebrate with me!  

By celebrate, I mean you mail me bottles of champagne and tins of caviar and I’ll enjoy them. Don’t worry, I’ll send you pictures!
