I've never understood having the money separate when being "married". Works for some, but most I know don't act like couples, more like friends or roommates. Anyway... sorry about the sidetrack, just popped out at me that you're married, yet you specifically stated you pay many of the bills for the dog. Just weird for old fogeys like me to read something like that.
No way I'd have a dog without having a yard. Like you said, too much work and responsibility. I guess you weren't clear enough with her about not wanting one, but if you really think you were clear about it, then maybe there are deeper problems. Either way, I'd find a way to put the responsibility of the dog back on her.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
