I guess items are replaced based on logic rather than emotion--whoever's car died gets the replacement. Since we tend to keep a car for about 10 years and tend to get them on a skewed semi-schedule (ie, one of us gets a car about every 5 years), this doesn't feel like an "it's my turn" issue--like someone already said, it's the car's turn to be replaced. Without long commutes to rack up the miles, I think our cars will last longer now. DH seems in no hurry to replace his 2002 Prius, which we use more than my 2008 CR-V as it gets almost twice the gas mileage.With home computers, it's a little different. DH made his living as a programmer and for years always got the new computer and I got the hand-me-down, which I didn't mind. But I wanted a brand new computer as a retirement gift. When I decided to replace that heavyish MacBook Pro with a lighter MacAir (I really do use it on my lap!), he took my older laptop a second time. He just retired, but seems in no hurry to get a new computer (he wants an expensive desktop Mac with big monitor--I hope he's waiting for next year's discount on this year's desirable model!).He has an expensive camera/lenses, while I have Nikon COolPix. He goes to the movies more than I do. I have more clothes (in more sizes :-/ He makes breakfast everyday, I make dinner almost every day, we both make lunch. I make almost all of our plans for almost everything. He does more implementation than I do. Turns has little or nothing to do with it. Maybe we're just flexible, or communists--from each according to his ability, to each according to his need ;-)
