Money is what keeps the world turning.
Even if we say money isn’t important, it is unquestionably a factor in how we live our lives. There are many things we can’t do because we don’t have the money. Even if we disregard the luxuries, many people around the world do not have enough for their next meal. With that kind of perspective, a lot of things make sense. However, just because you don’t have a lot doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to splurge once in a while.
Many people will tell you to always save, but we are not going to take this money to our graves, so as long as you are responsible, treating yourself once in a while is a good idea. But that doesn’t mean you can do whatever you want if your partner isn’t on board. When you marry, you agree to make compromises, which include allowing your significant other to weigh in on what you want. This woman, on the other hand, really wanted a family Christmas picture, despite the fact that they didn’t have enough money for it. Her husband obviously refused, but she refused to listen.

His wife wanted them to take a professional family photo.
The husband refused but she went ahead with it anyway behind his back.
Rather than feeling guilty about it, she insisted that she was in the right even when he confronted her.
He asked her to cancel the appointment but she wouldn’t budge.
So he decided to call the photographer himself and cancel the appointment which ended with him and his wife fighting.
He explained that he was thinking of leaving her over this.
Even to the end, she was adamant that she didn’t do anything wrong.
While he does think that they should separate, he doesn’t want to do that to his daughter.
After the financial separation, she went ahead with the photos anyway.
And he ended up making some good memories with his daughter.
For some, this may not seem like a big deal, and they may believe that these people are exaggerating the situation, but she did betray him. She could have discussed it with him, but she chose to do so behind his back. And I understand why she wants something nice, but is a family portrait really a hill you want to die on? Many phone cameras can take high-quality photos, and she can certainly wait until they have enough money. An emergency fund, as the name implies, is for emergencies. It is not intended for Christmas family photos.
People in the comments advised him to just pull the plug because it wasn’t worth it.
We do need more but it is up to them at the end of the day.
I had no idea this was such an issue but apparently, it is.
It isn’t concluded at all and they need to make up their mind.
Communication can’t always solve relationship problems.
