If your husband woke up one day and said....

He wanted to start living a primitive lifestyle....would you join him ?

Meaning, out in the woods ( probably in log cabin type housing) no electricity, no running water, and of course, an out-house

  • If MY husband suddenly did that I'd have him admitted to the nearest psych unit. He is all about his luxuries and comforts.. lol
    I would come closer to wanting to do that than him.

  • I'd tell him to have fun with that, maybe I'd visit him every so often. But personally, I like having running water and indoor plumbing. I'm spoiled like that. Don't get me wrong, camping for a week is great, but I wouldn't live like that unless necessary for any longer.

  • I'd give it a shot. I'm the one who has actually thought like that! So if he told me he wanted to take it back in the day, I'd probably join him and see if I like it.

  • Unless there was a valid reason and we NEEDED to do that?

    No, I wouldn't.

    And he wouldn't leave me to do so himself.

  • I'd enjoy it to an extent, as I am a big outdoorsey person, but I have to have my internet.

  • I don't think so. Twice we have had to live without water and electricty---a hurricane and another time, an ice storm that broke power lines...and it was no fun.

    Me too. I actually want to live simpler. I wish we all could!

  • If there was a legitimate reason, I would consider it, but I can't think of one. I won't even go camping for more than a day if I can't have a hot shower and a blow dryer.

    A primitive lifestyle is not what I desire.
