I'm thinking if your wife thinks you are stingy you are. Whether you solve that via divorce because she is a spendthrift or by accepting some of her input is for all couples to work out. My gal invests some money with an ex-boss with healthy fees. He recommended and we own some Alibaba at a substantial loss; we bought GM as it was just about to go bankrupt because she felt loyalty to GM and wanted to express her support. She also works at ANYTHING she attempts like a pit bull with a chew toy - including getting us to where we are. Any fantasy I have about controlling her is just that - she does some things because of reason and some because of her personality - I guess I better like her just fine as she is.
