Yeah, I didn't think I was nuts for wanting that.. I mean in all honesty i'm very tame for a 21 year old. But I do still like to have some fun once in a while, i'm not dead for f**ks sake lol. I enjoy drinking with my friends. I am incredibly faithful to him, I don't even flirt in the slightest if a man comes around. I tell him i'm married, and that's the end of that.



He doesn't believe that I should go to a bar with my group of girls. I don't know, maybe I just think differently, but if i'm behaving and junk, what's it hurting?

A good wife is her husband's equal in all things, a good companion and a strong enough person to be independent.

Part of a healthy relationship, is having a healthy self identity as well - that time alone, time with friends, is going to help with that. It's great to be together, but not all the time. You both need time and hobbies outside of each other.



You can definitely be traditional, without him being controlling.



SO and I are pretty old fashioned, outside of the fact that we both work. I do the housework and cook the meals, and if I'm home before him I can promise you that dinner will probably be ready to hit the table when he gets home. He does all the lifting and yard work and takes out the trash....all the 'man' tasks haha. It works well for us, but...man, if I tell him I'm going out with a friend, he doesn't even think twice about it...unless it's just to ask if I'm still making dinner or not lmao

Mine too...he would still want the kids to be fed and have a bath and his dinner cooked but other than that he doesn't care what I do on my own time.

Exactly! And I REALLY like it this way. I REALLY enjoy the "domestic thing" as he calls it, so making sure everyone is fed/clean/etc is quite pleasant to me. That, and I honestly don't like other people in my kitchen, even if he COULD cook (he, uh, tried to make freezer pizza the other day. It didn't work out....)

I agree..its my house and family and my job to keep everything in order. I wouldn't have it any other way <3
