Thread: Does your partner in life support your habit?

  1. #1

    Default Does your partner in life support your habit?

    Just curious.
    I'm not really good at savings so my wife gets upset when I spend crazy amounts on my photography habits (I have also other expensive habits ). And I'm not rich.
    Want to find out if you guys/girls face the same kind of issue or is your partner more supportive?

    My wife buys my camera but I buy other stuff like flash, tripod etc.

    I guess I am lucky!

    i'm single so i have not participated in this poll.

    just wondering, if some of u out there were single, do u think u'd spend, or have heaps more time to go shoot?

    i was thinking when i get attached i probably will cut down on time spent shooting. already lost a very good gf due to spending too much time (in her opinion) on other hobbies last time.

    sorree if OT.

    Same here. My wife bought me my first digitial camera 3 years ago. I then bought the rest of the accessories. Well, she does grumble at times, but will be okay thereafter.

    Definitely! If I were single, I would spend my weekends photo taking and maybe gf hunting at the same time.
    But I have a wife & she certainly needs my attention. So she has to come first. That's y I do mostly family or company events. You don't really have to cut down your time shooting. Just make sure she takes part in what you do & enjoy your hobbies with you. Humans have feelings, cameras do not.

    To some, it's a hobby. To others, it can be a habit which means addiction. This is more close to what I mean for this poll.

    It's interesting that there is a thread on this, because I have plenty to share.

    My gf is totally against me and photography. She hates it when I bring my cameras + tripod along when we go travelling. Heck, when I go to locations at sunrise on impulse, I often get chastised for not bringing her along (she doesn't live with me by the way).

    Thank god I broke up with my gf just a few days ago.

    Buddy, nothing should come inbetween a relationship if you are going to have a successful one. Not photography, not money, not career nor your mother-in-law.

    My partner supports me, joins me in photo outings. She got so interested and is now enrolled in a course.

    Maybe you wanna encourage her to take a course with you?

    I have a different issue than you guys. You see, my wife knows that I organize model photo shoots in the weekends, and I normally not stay at home in the weekends. Now she is actually trying to pick up photography so in future she may join me as well.

    Anyway, I don't spend much $ on photography, I only spend time on it.
