Dear Shirley,

My husband likes to act like he is wealthy like his friends are, which he is not, we are just middle class. When we go out to dinner at very nice restaurants he insists on picking up the tab for everyone, which is way more than we can afford. I have tried to talk to him about it but he ignores my concerns and continues the behavior.
What else can I do?!


Dear Corrina,

The first thing I want you to do is to go to your junk drawer, everyone has one of these, get your scissors and cut up your husband’s credit and debit cards immediately! I’m joking! Please do not do this! Now that we had a little laugh at your husband’s expense (no pun intended) let’s address your concern. Cutting up his cards is a temporary solution and would not be helpful to your relationship.
