I don't understand
« on: November 10, 2015, 05:10:26 pm »
Does anyone know how someone can want so much materialistically in their life? My husband has been looking at sports cars. He does not make a lot of money. We just put our first daughter through university. It's time to put our 2nd daughter through, and we're short. He doesn't want to "step back" after the separation and move to a modest house, and yet he doesn't want to adjust his lifestyle to save so he can live where he wants.

I honestly don't understand.

I have family members that are the same way with their gadgets and cars, it seems they derive some form of happiness from it, but it is shortlived so they have to keep getting the new and fancy thing to feel happy again. It sounds like a vicious cycle...I don't personally feel the same way but can understand if someone is having trouble finding that happy feeling how they would go to a quick fix.
