When ever I think about selling some btc, my wife talks me out of it.  When ever she thinks about selling some I talk her out of it.  So far its worked very well!
But last night... we stayed up late and spent a bunch of btc at the bitcoinstore.  We have been needing a couple more computers and finally bought them along with some other things.

Often we discuss where that valid line of government should be (usually in the libertarian/anarchist spectrum) and how such should/could be implemented.

She doesn't "waste" her time on the forums, but she stays informed of all the drama, news, happenings.  We would both be attending the Bitcoin conference, but we have a little baby and she has a sister in San Jose.  So she's making me go convention, while she has a vacation.

And my daughter, she gets insulted if I offer her cash instead of btc for helping with Bees Brothers or any other paying job.  So her $6 coins have treated her well.

Our biggest area of disagreement tends to be if certain politicians should be shot or hung. Wink

This. But also....

My girlfriend doesn't understand bitcoin, feels that I am ignoring her at night now when I am home, until bedtime....if you know what I mean. But all in all she has been great about it. 2 years of me 'ignoring' her, and I actually have spent some coin on her because of my wise investments....so I tend to think the amount of time BTC can take up would stress any relationship, but if your significant other respects you enough to know that your time and hobbies are yours as well as theirs, and you don't spend 26 hours a day obsessing about one thing, whether it be btc or something else, there is more than enough time in the day for a healthy relationship and a life-consuming hobby such as this.

And to the guy who's wife,gf...whatever fixes his rigs....thanks, I am going to be training my gf up and hopefully teach her the way of the coin this weekend....she will probably ask me for a tip. and I got just the one for her.

My lady has done nothing but encourage my joining the BTC community and is very interested when she asks what I'm doing as I refresh MtGox/BTCjam/These forums. You should get a better girlfriend.

Me? I'm just the cynical voice floating in the sea of unchecked optimism.

So I told her about this thread and all the comments people have made (left a few of the more descriptive ones out haha)... twenty minutes later she came in with $300 in cash and said "buy me some Bitcoin, everyone else you have convinced has been making money." I said: "Ok, its not all about making money though.... its about a revolutionary new way to take the power of currency from the hands of corrupt banksters and put it in the hands of we the people."

She seems to be warming up to this crazy idea we call Bitcoin.

The current attraction to the coin seems to be money. I have found that introducing people to the money aspect first brings them to the realization that there is more to it than that. My co-workers, in the past month, have seen their investments in my way of living this life increase exponentially, and now they are getting into the community/idea of this wonderful movement we are a part of. I am just waiting for their posts in the introduction thread. But it is my fault for not telling them to just jump in. So guys from OGRFX, if you're reading this....JOIN NOW!.

And congrats on getting her to invest. I'm selling a small portion at 90 if you want to do a direct sale Wink

Certain things are important. You don't have to agree on them, but you should be able to be civil and discuss them with respect to one another.
I'm glad shes coming around to it, but she still seems like she doesn't respect you much. :\

ZOMG Moo!

I would have taken you up on that and avoided the $15 Bitinstant fee on $300, but sadly we already bought it together... thanks though!. OMG we bought our first BTC together... such a huge first! lol

Very good point. Every time she gets pissed at me she threatens to sue me for something.

Remember:  There's at least a little bit of truth behind every joke.

I've been married to my wife for almost 13 years (and we've been together for almost 23 - don't tell Dr. Laura though, she'd be pissed!).  My wife has never really understood Bitcoin, and would readily admit as much.  We've discussed it on and off since I discovered it in early 2012, and she does understand the concepts to a point, but definitely not the intricacies.  What she does understand though is that I think it is important, and that's been enough.  She supports me as it has gone up, and also understands that it is possible that for any number of reasons it could go to zero.  Although I've not invested straight cash into BTC, I have purchased hardware to mine, so indirectly I have.

In short, she doesn't support Bitcoin...she supports me...and I, her.  Bitcoin is just one current topic of many in our lives, but I know the support is constant.  So does she.

I would honestly ask yourself if this really has anything at all to do with Bitcoin?

Best of luck to you...and to her.

My GF bitched me out last night because she said I wouldn't stop talking about Bitcoin and I wasn't paying enough attention to her and all I did was watch stupid boring charts. Then she reiterated her point that BTC is illegal and will be shutdown eventually (ironic she says that because she is an attorney and has no freaking clue what BTC is).  Then she put her hands on her hips and told me if I was making so much money I needed to take her to a nice dinner or else there was no point being together! lol!

So I am thinking of dumping her? Anyone else ended a relationship over BTC? haha

had the same problem. Gave her a paper wallet showing that she can look at the value  on blockchain.org. Now she has more in bitcoin than fiat and the problem has been solved.

The cost of mediation increases transaction costs, limiting the
minimum practical transaction size and cutting off the possibility for small casual transactions

In hysterics over this thread to be honest lol and I'm single

Quote
You basically illustrated my point. One girl says "I don't think bitcoin will work", so a neckbeard breaks up with her instead of just being patient because "fuck anyone who has a different religious, political or technological opinion than me!".  Roll Eyes

I'm single and I've talked to people about Bitcoin, if anyone makes any stupid comments I just laugh at them because by the time they've spoken the value has risen again Tongue I haven't really talked much to the girls I know about it though because I don't think they'd be interested but the ones that I have have had the balls to say they don't know anything about it so Tongue Guess I just know intelligent girls, I can't stand the dumb girls with princess syndrome which is probably why I haven't got a g/f yet >_<.

lol! Yeah, we both from day one have agreed if we ever did (now not likely) we would get a prenup. But if she ever tried to take my stash I would take a magnet to my pc right away, drill a hole in my HD and then light it on fire in front of her. Then go did up the flash drive I have buried in the backyard when she is not looking and run! lol! j/k

Um... Am I the only one who would not share the wallet password with my girlfriend?  Shocked
