I just tell my OH I don't need her permission. It doesn't work though. One way I find that works is to guilt trip. "It's not fair that you wasted all our money on shoes/dresses/tampons/other women's things ect last month but I'm not allowed to spend money on things I like?!".
It's only worth guilt tripping if you really want the animal. They soon soon see through it but it's too late once you have the snake.

Get a big carrier bag and start filling it with her shoes and hand bags. When she demands to know what you're doing.... look at the empty viv and tell her she's got too many.

i go under the assumption that a 100 pound snake is going to cost me 200, 100 for the snake and 100 for what the missus wants...

Stop asking her for a couple of weeks so she forgets about it, then just buy one and put it in the viv, see how long it takes her to notice
