not so much on how much I have spent money wise, but more about how much time I spend on hisstank. She has made a few remarks about my spending but I give her crap about useless stuff she wants sometimes as well. It sure beats being single though. Even if she is only faking interest, its better to share a score with someone you love than to just bring it home and share it with your computer or your dog.

My wife is very cool with my collecting. Let's be honest, I would throw them all on Ebay or the Tank if it ever came down to it. My wife is a LOT more important to me than a certain military action figure. This does not down play my love for Joes but stresses the love I have for my wife! She knows she has priority in my life and supports my plastic crack habit.
I think because we have the room (man-cave in the basement) and I don't go overboard with the spending, we've got a great thing and it doesn't cause too many problems. She did say the other day, however, that she is jealous that because I trade with my "friends on the Tank" that I get more mail than she does!

My wife is cool with it...she even gets stuff for me from time to time. Every once in awhile we have the standard money fight that just about every married couple has and she'll throw the collection in my face, and I promptly point out her expenses that dwarf mine and that usually shuts her up, LOL. She only pulls out the collection thing when she's really pissed, LOL. Seems like all the bills are due the same time her monthly friend comes by for a visit.
The only problem is storing it. We are looking to buy a bigger home and it has already been agreed that I will have an entire room that is mine.....I can't wait.
All in all though she is cool with it though. She's been secretly trying to get me a FLAGG and Defiant but she still doesn't know enough to not overpay for something that isn't complete. So she always says, "I've been talking with the person on ebay...and the auction is over, but I just didn't know if it had all the parts and I didn't want to spend that much if it didn't." I guess I am going to have to sit her down and show her piece by piece what to look for and a price range, LOL.

I think it also helps that pretty much the entirety of my Joe collection is in my cube at work (ostensibly to keep them in decent condition until my son is old enough to have them) but, out of site, out of mind is never a bad thing for the grown collector's significant other. A lot of my older collections are packed away as well. All that helps to keep the peace.
