Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Gift Guilt

gifts

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
