After long years of shedding blood, sweat and tears, and rubbing your butt on your office chair eight hours a day to earn extra money, you're now entertaining thoughts of treating yourself by buying your dream motorcycle.

You’ve already provided for your family's needs: from education, life insurance, housing, vacation home, and even a trust fund.

So you filled up the manager’s check, got the brochure of your favorite motorbike, talked to a dealer for a special discount, and were able to get the unit with your favorite color.

Everything is set except for one thing—your wife threatened to abandon you if you purchase a motorbike.

You tried to get her nod on several occasions but to no avail. You’ve talked to your parents in a bid to get their endorsement but you failed. And it even came to a point that you went to several churches and walked toward the altar on your knees, asking for divine intervention.

Have you been in this dilemma?

Will you allow your wife to prevent you from buying a big bike?

Yes. Happy wife, happy life.

No. I'll do it my way.

I'm ready to live alone.
