Are you low-maintenance??

I am, I don't require much. The only thing I 'require' of my SO is that he keeps a roof over our heads. (I'm a sahm, he's the breadwinner. It was what we decided on together.) Beyond our bills being paid, I don't ask anything of him, besides his undying love.

  • Sounds just like me. I think I am super low-maintenance, lol. My husband's great though, always trying to push me to do more for myself anyway even though I don't really feel the need to.

  • Im low maintenance, but there are occassions when I get nails and hair done just so I don't forget and dh don't forget what I look like when im actually Usually Im home so I practically live in my pj's with no makeup. Dh says he loves me either way and I believe him. As far as having teeth cleaned and eyes checked and that kind of thing, well I get what I need when I need it...period

  • Very low maintenence. As long as the bills are paid and I get a new book here and there, I'm good. He asks that I want for more but I can't. I just don't.
