Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Does It Always Have To Be Fair

shopping girlsDear Mike & Liza,

I just did back to school shopping with my kids.  I have a girl in High School and a boy in Jr. High.  I spent about $300 on clothes and accessories for my daughter.  My son only got about $100 worth of jeans, shirts and new sneakers.  My husband says that’s not fair and I need to make it “even” somehow.
The truth is, my son would wear the same jeans and t-shirt every day and never think twice about it.  High School girls are different.  They put a tremendous amount of time, energy and emotion into their “look.”
I don’t think it has to be fair.  Am I wrong?

Becky, Pocatello
