This isn't meant to cause trouble (and if it does, the admins can delete it). This is intended for light-hearted discussion and food for thought. People sometimes joke about a guy's wife being mad that he wants to buy a new guitar, etc.. My wife sometimes does say she doesn't see why I'd want another guitar or keyboard, etc.. Is this really common? Do spouses really not like it when their spouse likes to play music? Or is it mostly about being annoyed listening to someone else's music or their playing, like having to listen to a loud neighbor? I wonder how common it is for someone to have a spouse who also likes music and appreciates wanting to look at musical instruments. But everyone has their own hobbies and interests.
