Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Gift Guilt


Dear Mike & Liza,
My hus­band won’t stop buy­ing me presents. He doesn’t wait until spe­cial occa­sions. He brings home presents at least once a week. Some­times it’s per­fume. Some­times it’s clothes. The lat­est is a pasta maker. When it’s my birth­day or Christ­mas, it never feels like a spe­cial occa­sion. I feel guilty that I’m not show­er­ing him with gifts in return and I feel guilty about the money he spends on me. I even feel guilty because he spoils me and not the chil­dren. He says I’m his princess and it makes him happy to give me things. But I don’t feel happy.
Heidi, Idaho Falls
