My Married Life: Share Your Husband's Biggest Money Suck

Where does your man's extra moola go?

This kind of thing is what most of us think of when we talk about the top male money sucks. We've all heard a wife whine about how her husband spent tons of cash on a big shiny boat, or a Harley, or a sports car. And then there are the gadget guys. Check it out: There's even a book to help you understand more about your man through his gadgets! (Note: If you're searching for clues about your partner by examining his cell phone and calculator, you might have bigger probs.)

But for my husband (at least lately), it’s jeans. Now, before you post the obligatory comment questioning his sexuality, can we all agree that men have been giving a sh#% about the way they look for quite some time now, and it’s really not all that crazy-remarkable when you stop and think about it? Great.

So back to the denim. It’s not like Jack rolls into Barneys and snatches up whatever high-end, complicated-pocket jeans fit him. Nope. For him, it's all about Japanese denim. It's super-durable, super-plain (nothing on the pockets), super-hard to track down -- oh, and super-pricey. I'm not going to say exactly how much he throws down on a pair, but it's roughly double what I, a self-respecting New York woman (read: overspender), usually drop. I get it though. He's been working so hard, and so much -- and what does he wear, pretty much every day? Jeans. So why not blow some dough on great ones rather than a new suit he might rock only once a year?

So now that I've thoroughly dimed out my poor husband, it's your turn: What’s your guy's biggest money suck? Extra points will be awarded for randomness.
