I broke a bone in my hand during jiu jitsu training last week.
So of course this has been met with some shit tests. Seemed fine at first until I now have to see a hand surgeon for treatment plan.
This has lead to talks about the yearly cost of training, maybe $20 bucks per class and less than 2k per year. Bills are paid, vacation planned, etc. Not having to post my family outside walmart begging for money. She mentioned, "You can do what you want with your money. Just know that your wife is unhappy and your son is going to miss out on things if we can't afford them. I still don't want to go on Monday. "
I tried to STFU and maybe I should have but hit me with a "Something different is going to have to be done or this is going to be something that will cause us to separate. Is this sport really worth it."
Lost frame and told her if $1800 was worth separating our family.
Of course after the fact I should have just laughed it off and had fun with it. "Guess I can spend it on a new motorcycle" or something.
Definitely lost frame. Should have STFU more or had fun with it. It's an inconvenient hobby at times but something that I have done for 9 years. Since we've been dating so it'snot something new.
Plan is to just STFU about it and keep pressing forward.
