My husband likes to hang out in the house in his boxers/underwear. I find this rude and tell him to please stop, but he won't. What am I suppose to do?

  • This is why I'm all for living together before There are some things you won't learn about someone until you move in with them. If he's been doing it since before you married, it's not likely to stop anytime soon. Turn up the a/c so he's so cold he has to put on more clothes??

  • my husband does the same thing. it doesn't bother me so much now, but it will have to stop before my baby gets too old. You could throw away all his underwear. (or hide them really well for awhile) if he buys some more, steal them and tell him he will get them back when he wears clothes in the house.

  • You are not alone!!! This is a huge pet peeve with me. We have made a compromise...he wears boxers and I keep my mouth shut. It works for us cause I buy him cute "shorts" and they look like clothing. Hope you can find some happy medium too. good luck

  • My Dh does the same thing and it drives me CRAZY....this might be TMI but his 'sack' hangs out of the bottom and my DD walks by and says 'eggs' to his you know whats.....ugh, drives me crazy and makes me sick. I honestly do not know what to tell you! Maybe suggest for him to wear some short in addition to the boxers...I really dunno. Good luck to you though!

  • I guess it depends on how he looks.....beckham or bundy(al)I'd just tell him it was a real turn off if he looks like bundy and if he looked like beckham......I'll need you address so i can peep in the windows LOL!!!

  • Don't be so hard on him....I have 2 brothers, 2 sons and have a fiance....they ALL walk around in their undies.....I think it just helps them not to feel so constricted!!! Question, do you walk around in your pj's? I'm sure you do---well that's probably how he feels!! LOL

  • What is wrong with him walking around in his boxers/undies? I would take my husband in the bedroom if he would. LOL! Maybe he is throwing you some hints.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it if he's doing it in his own house. Now when the kids get older I would ask him to stop.

  • People need to get more comfortable with there bodies. I don't see anything wrong with it. Though if he can't see your point of view. Start striping down to your underwear when you get home everyday and see if he thinks it is a good idea. If it backfires atleast you can have alittle fun. As long as the kids know this is something that happens at home who cares.
