I would advise you to quit buying garbage. If need be take a break from buying and enjoy the cards you have. Cards are easy to replace, finding someone that will tolerate your baggage long term isn't.

If both you and your wife have incomes, I would suggest not combining your finances, or not combining all your finances. In that way, each of you can maintain a measure of autonomy as to your purchases; that is, having the ability to make a purchase without being vetoed. For those who think this might reduce intimacy/communication, I can assure you this system has worked well in my marriage for 35 years without any ill effect.

And start collecting old beat up black bowling balls. Tell her they are antiques. Ask her to keep an eye out for the new catalog. If she starts laughing, she is a keeper. If she blows her top, well, its your life...

Not divorce related, but wifey related.... Do you guys get the same "eye roll" (aka you are crazy!) from your wife that I get whenever she sees me surfing this board..... I take that as a sign of loving tolerance.... hahahahaha

Sounds to me as if she was pissed off over something else.
