Re: What did you do for your wife today?
My husband buys me lots of stuff, handbags, jewellery, recently a very expensive pen and shoes and before I left for overseas another designer watch ( i already have two which I never wear!). HIs love language is gifts, mine is not.
I have told him him over and over that whilst I appreciate the gifts I am not into receiving gifts at all, I am not mercenary and in fact all this designer stuff goes against the values I subscribe to (envir protection, anti capitalist,) He does not hear me. My love language is quality time, which I don't get.
He has told me I don't appreciate all he does, I do but it does not float my boat the way he expects it to, I do not know how to get through to him.
He loves to receive gifts from me but I am running out of ideas and money as he likes expensive stuff and my salary does't stretch that far.
How do I communicate this to my husband? Wrong forum, but I guess he does this for me and I know some women would be totally thrilled.
