What should I do?

Okay so I am on Facebook and i only use it to keep in contact with my long distance friends and relatives. Share pictures of kids stuff like that. I have no males on it by the way other than my family. None of that, who has the most friends type of deal. My husband wants me to delete it and gets very very upset because I won't. I see no reason too. It led into a big argument. And I was just wondering am I over-reacting? Should I just go ahead and delete it to keep the peace?

  • I wouldn't either. Ask him why he is so worried about it and what reason he has to be worried. You should be able to have facebook so you can share stuff with family more easily.

  • I have enough respect for my husband that I would cancel the account if he asked. If the people that I was keeping in touch with on Facebook were that important i would share my email address and keep in touch that way.

  • Maybe he just thinks you are talking about him. If you're not, just show him what goes on and maybe he will let it go.

  • If it's just family I see no big deal in it. I think he has trust issues and maybe you should sit down and really find out why he wants you to delete it.

  • my hubby, who is typically not jealous AT ALL, got a bit weirded out by my FB account. he doesn't understand how i can really know so many people. he got upset about it a couple times and i said i'm not doing anything wrong, i'm keeping in touch with old classmates and friends who live all over the country and world. i promised that everyone on there is someone i know or knew in real life other than a couple women i met online at CM and that i am not and would not be communicating with exes. men sometimes don't understand the connections women keep with others and often men see the internet as a tool for getting in trouble on porn and dating sites. can you just show him who is on there and maybe not personal messages but the wall stuff? just show him that it's nothing to worry about...

  • oh yeah... and the reason i don't want to keep in touch with these people via e-mail.... i don't like e-mail there is too much spam. plus i would have to personally communicate with all of them. no they're not all that important to do that with, but i do enjoy being able to see my old classmate's kids without having to ask and clog up the e-mail, see what they're up to, let people know what's up with me without having to spend hours on e-mail. my husband did ask why didn't i just e-mail, and this is why - it's an issue of convenience to me, and why shouldn't it be convenient for me to keep in touch with people?

  • do not delete it to keep the peace because next time it will be something else. hubby has to learn to comprise.
