    Mrs51 equates her spending $250 each for Cher tickets to me spending $500 each for our last National Championship tix.

    To me it ain't the same. What do you think?

    Pretty simple - she's always right. Tho $500 for Cher is pushing the logic.

    LOL that was my question, it's a concert what is wrong with sitting in the cheap seats. I guess it could be worse, her best friend is going with her and will eventually pay for her own ticket.

    Don't even try to figure us out, just enjoy us. My Husband and I mostly buy what we want without consultation, except for big ticket items.

    The difference is that the Florida football team doesn't go on tour from city to city for months at a time, beating Oklahoma night after night (but that would be cool, right?). Seeing your team win a CFB National Championship isn't something you can do in Cleveland or Kansas City or Dallas when the circus comes to town. You go to it; it doesn't come to you. You're not going to commemorate the show by framing a newspaper with a headline that reads "Cher Performs Sold-Out Concert, Boosts Local Economy" but you'd be intrigued to do so for the Herald, Trib, Times, Sun, etc. the day after the Gators win the big one, especially if you attended the game. It's a more meaningful and more memorable experience than Cher, or at least it should be. $250 for Cher is highway robbery, but $500 for a seat at the BCS NCG is just the going rate.

    Your fundamental mistake is making female and logic connected in your explanation. There is logic and there is female "math" and they are not always in the same zip code. Let's just say that she wants to justify her purchase as much as you justify yours. Logic really isn't a part of the arguments.

    And if you want to be happy for a LONG time, I would accept her recent use of "math" as gospel and not as a basis for a moon launch. Try out this dialog:

    Her: Honey, I am buying Cher tickets for ____ and I. They are going to be $500 but I feel the concert will be worth it.

    You: Are you sure? That seems to be quite a bit of money for a one-time event.

    Her: Well, I didn't think it was too much to spend on the Gator game tickets a while back. Besides, Cher is getting up there and this may be the last time I will be able to see her.

    You: You are right. You are ALWAYS right. You and ____enjoy yourselves. And I want to hear every detail the minute you get back.

    And then remind her of all the fun she is going to have at the concert up to the last minute, and with enthusiasm and not patronization.


    How do I know all of this? You DON'T want to know.:laugh:

    That's like saying I spent $500 for NC tix and $250 to repeatedly punch me in the balls. Not equatable.

    The bigger issue is she's holding $500 against you from years ago? That's kinda nutty me thinks. Let her get the Cher tix. She obviously wants them if she's still grudging $500 but willing to spend $250 on silicon, make up and a vocoder. Negotiate sexual favors.

    Did he negotiate likewise when he wanted his tickets...and btw it was $500 EACH he said per ticket.

    And to men that doesn't make sense. To some women going to Cher is way more important than a bunch of guys in see-through pants running around the field in between commercials and dealing with TV timeouts interrupting all the action constantly. Their argument would be that you could watch the game on TV, whereas the Cher concert isn't televised.

    Just playing devil's advocate here :wink:

    Yeah, IC I understand women use faulty reasoning. ;)
