Would you let him go fishing today?

My SO and I were driving home from church and he said since noone is coming over till 4 that he was going to go fishing. I asked him if he would stay since it was Easter! I also work every day and we don't see each other very much and thought we could spend some time together. Would you have let him go or asked him to stay home?

  • "let" him go???? Really?

    I don't see the big deal. A couple of hours to fish before people come over doesn't seem like a horrible thing.

  • I would just tell him that you were really looking forward to having some family time together. If he still insists on going fishing, you know where his priorities are.

  • He deserves a chance to do something for himself at times. I would say sure, go fishing! He will be back in a couple hours anyway

  • Does he wanna be out a few hours? or are you still gonna spend the evening together? ...but if this is a religious holiday for you, i would think it would be important for him to stay home. That's just my view.

  • i can't "let" him do anything. Going fishing always comes before me anyway. I just wish him "good fishing and come back safe". I know if I tried to come between he and his fishing I'd be sitting here all alone forever!

  • Why not? It's just a little down time fishing. Not that I let my husband do anything, I am not his mom. If he wanted to go fishing, tthat's fine. It's his time to relax.

  • I don't 'let' my SO/DH do or not do anything. Just as he doesn give me permission to do what I'd like. It's only a few hours...give the guy a break. Your his SO not his Mom.
