You don't need money to get "me time." Heck, just an hour or two sitting at a coffee shop with a frou-frou coffee drink and a cheap magazine counts. If even that's too much money, go to the library...

I'd call her on it.

"Wait, are you seriously saying that 'boys will be boys' and I should just take it?"

Insert a strong tone of disbelief. If she persists, ask her what your allowances are in...
