It’s no surprise Hermès Birkin bags cost an arm and a leg. A woman recently bought a real one…without telling her husband.
Now she’s asking the internet if it was just the wrong thing to do.
“Me (29-year-old female) and husband (32-year-old male) have been married for just over 3 months,” she starts out by explaining.
“My sister bought a Birkin in store a few months ago and asked me if I wanted to buy it from her.”
“I’ve always wanted that specific bag, and it’s been sold out everywhere so when she offered I jumped.”
“My husband and I have separate finances except for one joint account for household expenses. We also decided on a percentage of income to save for future baby, retirement, etc.”
“I come from a wealthy family, so I do have a bit of money that I did not get from my work.”
“Prior to our marriage, we had the same system of mostly separate finances, one joint account.”
