ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma has to do with money and what to tell your spouse about it. Here’s the email: 

Hi Jaime. Here’s a dilemma My father recently passed away and I’ve been cleaning out his house. I noticed that he had an old history book that was in pretty good condition. It was from the early 1900’s. Anyway I took it to a local book collector who told me it was worth around $3,000. I immediately sold it to him and pocketed the money. I’m not a book collector. Here’s the thing I’d love to use that money to have some fun, and to take my wife out to a really expensive dinner. We always say we’ll do that, but she never wants to spend the money. My wife is a big saver. Do you think I have to tell her about this? Can I just keep it to myself. I mean, it was MY dad’s book so it’s MY money, right? Plus I want to spend some of it on her. What do you think? Thanks Jaime.

Well, I am a fan of honesty in a relationship Three grand is a lot of money, at least to me so I think Matt should tell his wife and maybe they can come to an agreement on how to spend it. I don’t ever think lying is the way, and not telling is a form of lying. At least that’s what I think. What about you? Should Matt tell his wife or keep the money and have some fun and take his wife out?

What would you do? Let’s help Matt and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
