I think this belongs in the off topic. As for the topic. I'm not old enough to be married.

Dude, if you have to ask that question or think about lieing to your wife then your marriage has more problems than wanting to buy another RC. Would you want her lieing to you about buying another, I don't know, sewing machine or something??? Been married 31 years and the only thing we lie to each other about is stuff like gifts and surprise parties. The important stuff like kids, money, our relationship, etc never. It just is not worth the grief.

I straight up tell my wife I'm buying another rc. She kind of looks at it this way, which is the same way I look at it. As long as our bills are payed, and we have enough money to put food on the table and gas in the cars. Then its not a big deal. Atleast this way she knows I'm not spending our money at the bars, gambling, drugs, or seeing other women.

I would just say. I think I'm gonna get another RC. She would say. "Oh great" with a smile. I'm actually thinking of getting the Savage. I have told her, but I have not pulled the trigger yet.

Well, have you considered another cost effective solution to ease the pain of the cost part? I mean going on the classifieds and looking to see if you can get one used! Or selling/trading one or you existin RCs to fund for the new one. That way, she just might be a little more understanding.

Something I found out about Women and RCs: Woemen do not like a clutter place, and keeping your RCs managable can be a convincing factor.

To get my LST2... I bought her a $500 paper cutter for her scrapbooking... equal compensation always works....

Depending on our financial situation and the truck in question... I usually just tell her I'm going to buy it... and go get it. She was a bit surprised when I came home with the heli... but she enjoyed flying it.

well i don't got a wife, and my gf don't count, but you could always show her how much the other hobbies cost and make it look like what you want to buy is as expensive as a 2 dollar pack of gum.

Or this worked well with my mother a few times, when i was into minis, but her up the wall with tech facts and comparisons to other cars in its price rang etc.. till she can't take it no more and just gives in so you'll shut up.

I only finance this hobby with overtime, my wife doesn't really care as long as I'm not using a credit card or our debit card. Hobbies are cash only. When she sees my son and I go out for the day with three or four cars she knows we're having fun in the best father / son hobby out there.

Im not married yet, but ill probably be getting engaged this summer.

My girlfriend think its neat that i have an r/c hobby. Im not one to go hog wild on spending money on it, so its not really a problem. I do a lot of trading around to get what i want, and other than buying fuel and support equipment, i dont buy much else. I wouldnt mind to have 1 more r/c. A monster pirate or something different maybe, but only if i find a good deal on it, and can afford it. My girlfriend has fun running my savage, so i warm it up, make sure its tuned, and let her go while i run the buggy usually.

Women do like a neat place though, so i know when we get married and get a house ill have to be as neat as possible with them. Ideally I will have a garage where i can do what i want with it though.

I usually say something like "It'll be here Tuesday.... BTW I'm taking Tuesday off". She hates it when I take time off from work because it means I'm still asleep when she has to get up.

When I met my wife she knew I had been into RC for years, she was cool with it.  I have a small stable of cars,trucks, helis and planes.  The best part is she likes nitro monster trucks vs electric. Dont be so whipped and be the man, ESPECIALLY if your bringing home the bacon. If your not making ends meet dont waste money on your rc stuff. i have had times when work was slow and I stared at a half built race revo for months and it drove me nuts not being able to buy parts to complete it. Good luck let us know how it goes.
