Heh. Like JYA said, my wife knew what she was getting into when we got
married. She gets her fair share of the spoils too though. I think the
trick is spending at least as much on things *she* really wants --
preferably even more on her things. When I say "I" have an iPad, what
I really mean to say is that my wife wanted one, so I got to buy *her*
one (granted, she'd have been happy w/just the base model). I just get
to play with the iPad every now and then when its not being used by
her or one of the kids. :)
