Even beyond the prochoice issue... planned parenthood offers birth control, prenatal care, help with abusive relationships/families and so much more, like why are people so ADAMANT about people being shamed for going in there?
Think that's bad, you should come down south where the "pro life" movement gets really bad. Not only are the patrons harnessed, but they shout & sometimes even throw things at the employees.

Most of the offenders are religious groups, yeah, way to live by god, I thought "he who was without sin" was supposed to be the only one to fast the first stone? .

Oh & about the "no more dogs" thing? The one who decides that is ME ... & I make sure he knows it. Hey I make money too, if I use MY money (we have separate bank accounts) & it doesn't effect him financially or whatever then he can eat a nice big bowl of "too ****ing bad".

If you live by yourself that's all good and dandy. But bringing in another dog affects EVERYONE living under one roof. I think everyone is entitled to voice their opinion when it comes to factors that will affect your every day life. Now, if my husband said" no dog because I said so, " that would not happen like that. We'd have to sit down, have a discussion and evaluate each other's reasons and then compromise. But to say, "I'm going to do what I want to do because it's my money" is not fair. He could install a stripper pole in the bedroom and have strippers over every night, according to your argument, it's HIS money afterall, right?

SO much THIS!!!! It really grates on me when people are like "I don't care if my spouse doesn't want this... it's my money and I want this and he can't tell me what to do." ARGH that's so disrespectful to the relationship and the other persons feelings. I would be right upset if my spouse said such things about the way I feel on certain matters.

A dog/no dog discussion should involve both people in the relationship. That's like a kid/no kid talk, it might be a deal breaker and that's ok but I think it's wrong to get around it by manipulation or deceit.

For certain things (personal things) I agree.
You wanna use a bit of your paycheck that isn't needed for the household to get your favorite cupcakes, get a haircut, new lipstick..
TREAT YOSELF'! as they say.

but a dog affects everyone. Like it or not, the dog will be interacting with, be around, likely be cared for or at least fed/watered/walked occasionally, by other people in the home.
Not to mention..screaming puppy during house training.

I would sit down with your s/o and really tell him how you feel. People who aren't dog people sometimes don't "get it". Like.. ok, she wants a dog like I want a sports car.
They don't understand that dogs are for some people a big part of our daily lives and who we are. Having a dog as part of a daily routine is more than just "nice", explain to him that it brings you comfort, joy, happiness.. etc..

Perhaps discuss your plans to make the new puppy as non intrusive/problematic as possible (budget, doggy daycare, things you already have, vet plans, etc..)

Good luck

My DH at one point said no more dogs. We sat down and had several long discussions on it. Basically, it came down to me listening to his concerns, compromising or alleviating the ones I could, and mature discussion. I explained I would be willing to wait a bit for the time to be better in his eyes, to work on budget or whatever BUT we were not going to be a no dog or 1 dog household. I explained that is not something I am ok with and would not compromise on. Since then I got Ivy and then Qcumber

Pretty much this. When we were both in our senior year, I wanted to get my puppy then. And it would have worked out, too, I think. But adding another dog at that point would have been the straw that broke the camel's back for Mike. So amid some tears on my part, I waited. Now we have Abrams and even though Mike is going to be gone for most of his puppyhood (I dare say he planned that timing lol), he really enjoyed the time he spent with him and calls him his dog as much as he is mine. Lol He knew going in to our relationship that I wanted multiple dogs and that I also was planning on a puppy soon. He was okay with that, and I was okay waiting. Ah, the art of compromise. It's a beautiful thing.
