Does your DH respect you enough not to do something you dislike/hate or does he do things you dislike with the knowledge that you disapprove of them?

  • He doesnt do things that would cause a fight like go to the bar, drink, smoke or stuff like that, but if it's something minor, then he does whatever he wants no matter how I feel about it.

  • Sometimes he will do them anyways. Just like sometimes I don't do what he wants me to do. I guess it is really a bad thing. But we are both indivduals. And We can't always do what others want us to do. Even if they think we are making a bad decision. We have to do what makes us happy, but we do need to try to keep our spouses happy too. So it is a toss up as to who is right. I guess it depends on the issue.

  • We have a mutual respect for one another. I know there are some things he will do as a man and he knows there are things I will do as a woman. Neither of us do anything that would BOTHER the one too badly. We made the commitment to be together in good and bad times and neither one of us is getting out of this marriage unless its in a body bag.

  • Yes he does things that I don't like but he's a grown man and I'm not his mother. I can't tell him how to live his life. As long as what he does isn't illegal and has no direct harm to me (or anyone else) then I voice my opinion but I don't try to stop him. Life is made of choices. He has the right to make his whether or not I agree with them.

  • I have enough respect for him to know that I'm his wife not his mother.

  • Nothing big. But like, he smokes and he knows I hate that. And he burps all the time, even though I tell him its disgusting all the time and I can't stand it. Just little obnoxious things like that.
