Stop Shopping, Or Else: Your spending is destroying our relationship!


Is your closet overflowing with never-worn clothing? Is your attic bulging with boxes of shoes that have never touched the pavement?

Overspending is a societal addiction in the U.S. In 2006, statistics identified 5.8% of the US population as compulsive buyers.

Studies estimate that as many as 17 million Americans can't control the urge to shop, even at the expense of a job, family, marriage, and finances.


Are you an excessive spender?

Is your shopaholic spouse ruining your relationship?

Women who indulge in this behavior, and I know some of them will be reading this message, remember that no matter what you buy, it will not take away that pain you are feeling. Deal with the real issues head on or they will deal with you. You are already a superstar, you really are , you just do not know it! PEACE

Excessive spending is a sickness, and I have found that the people I know who engage in this behavior have other underlying emotional problems and use shopping as an emotional lift. I know a young lady who went through 700 grand on emotional spending. I hope that the people who have this problem get help, it can really destroy your life.

No I am not excessive spender. I don't feel the need to own designer labels and things of that nature. Honestly if you know someone is an excessive shopper prior to marriage, you can't expect them to change after marriage. If couples are not on the same page financially it will be a disaster in a relationship.
