Shopping! Shopping! Shopping! This is usually the problem for persons with partners who are shopaholics they buy and buy and buy. This becomes a very problematic situation when this particular partner does not know how to prioritize the financial needs in the marriage. Instead of giving his or her share for the monthly bills, this person goes out and buys a designer set of clothes that he or she saw on television.
Prioritization is the main goal here. You must let your overspending partner realize that there are more important things to take care of than buying and shopping for items.

Sooner or later he will retaliate and when that happens, the love relationship becomes a bad relationship.
