I just realized what Adrian is saying in the second panel.  Normally, I catch things like that quickly.

...Man, does this hit close to home for me. My stepfather used to verbally shame both me and my (bipolar-depressive) sister for the cost of our medication, as if the tough financial straights of our family were our fault -- all, it turns out, while he was secretly dumping money into his alcoholism on the sly.

If he really wanted to make her happy, perhaps making her do "favors for [his] friends" just to pay the bills is counter productive.

I like how you make this relatable to both sides.  Yes she is right that they should be careful with their money.  But He is only trying to be good to her, and trying to show how much she is worth to him.

I don't want to be *that guy* but I have to disagree with you due to similar happenings with a friend of mine.

Her boyfriend pulled this same stunt, bought her stuff that they couldn't have, and when she got upset, he emotionally manipulated and tortured her *just like this* until she broke. What the male 'roo is doing is called emotional manipulation, and it's a form of abuse.

If the mere memory of your partner makes you cry, then that partner was a terrible person and deserves to have their genitalia sawed off with a dull rusty blade.

I'm pretty sure he is just saying how he feels.  And from my observation this is just the way humans work.  I see just about all women do it constantly, and everyone seems to be okay with it.

well yes, because society is flawed.
And even if he feels that way, he should talk to her about it politely, instead of saying something like "Your medication is expensive, do you want me to just take that away?"
THAT is never okay. there's a huge difference between buying a necessary drug for someone's health, and throwing away money for a few pretty rocks. Like, I get it, being romantic or whatever, but the second you compare a *need* to a *luxury*, and then threaten to take away the needed item? that's crossing the line into the zones of abuse. That kangaroo is a complete a--hat.

This page literally shows him being manipulative and abusive to her and you think he's RIGHT?

You know, I don't agree.  I think what he is doing is controlling.  She is doing 'favors' (unspecified, but it seems dodgy) for his friends because, apparently, he doesn't make enough at his warehouse job to cover their expenses (implication is, basic costs like rent, food, utilities).  Then he turns around and spends their shared funds on frivolous items that she hasn't asked for.  She expresses concerns about this--it seems like she would prefer *not* having to do those favors, rather than get jewelry.  She should probably state that more directly, but her timid demeanor, and his aggressive stance, makes me think this is not a healthy relationship.  Particularly because when she tries to suggest that the money might be better spent elsewhere--what does he do?  He implicitly threatens to take away her pain medication.  Jewelry and pain medication *are not* equivalent.  She *needs* her pain meds.  The jewelry is a luxury that *he's* decided to get--without consulting her.  The not-at-all-veiled message, in my opinion, is that *he* is the one in control of their finances.  *He* decides what their money will be spent on, even though she has to contribute to the household income to keep them afloat.  By extension--and I think this is common in controlling/abusive relationships--he is in control of *her.*
I may be reading too much into this--I'm not a counselor or a psychologist, just someone whose seen a lot of the world, being quite a bit older than most of the folks here on DA (cough), but I don't think so...

Ouch. It seems like they just can't see eye to eye. Between the two of them, I think Wyatt is the one pressing these issues onto her - more work, more rewards. The only thing is, the rewards have to be his surprises so he's in control of that, with their ordinary income going to expensive medication. However as they've not planned this before and it's revealed in this moment, I can only guess that Wyatt has near total financial control. He is unwilling to hear her side (seen in previous page) which is pretty bad for their relationship.

Meanwhile, Adrian wants the money going towards more stability/improvement in their situation, but concedes too easily and lets Wyatt have his way even though it won't last and won't be a happy peace for her. Maybe it's because of some hope that things will work out between them, that Wyatt will change or they will get more money between them and then if his spending is static then she can get what she wants, too. I can only guess.

Oh and... thanks for the exciting stories, I love reading them!

Ok I give up, DA keeps forcing me to reply to this comment no matter what I do, I can't start a new chain. Sorry if this is awkward placement but it can't be helped apparently...
