And I agree with the others who've said you should tell your FI you won't pay with your birthday money. After all, you're getting married for goodness sakes; He should help you and be supportive when you're in a bind like that and vice versa!

Although since we're friends w/ most of the cops in town they would laugh at anyone who even thought of filing a report for someone hitting your car w/ their door..... I mean seriously have you never flung open your own door and hit another car. I have several times, and I didn't do it on purpose i accidentally just pushed to hard.
I also don't leave them my info saying hey sorry I hit your car when I opened my door..... who does that?
They make touch up paint for a reason. You can go into any automotive store they have small bottles of paint for every make and model to match exactly... like $5 a bottle.
Tell your FI to take a midol, take a bath and go to bed.
He says he doesn't even care about the ding - it's the fact that I don't "respect" him by doing what he tells me to. (since he has more experience than me apparently)

As for your FI, he's being rediculous too. It's a freaking scratch on a car door. It's not like the lady smashed your windshield and you let her walk away! You did not disrespect your FI by not calling the cops. If I had been in that situation I would have done the same thing. Calling the cops just seems too extreme for a scratched car door.
Like someone said before, get some touch up paint and put the whole experience behind you. Then buy yourself something awesome for your birthday!

And spend your birthday money on something that you love, NOT on the stupid door ding!
Hang in there girl!

If it is really about a door ding, I would tell him to settle down because there is no reason to get so fired up about some scratches on a door. Scratches/dings on a car is inevitable. We get all kinds of rock chips in the winter and we certainly can't call the cops on the gravel.
