  • Pretty much all of my family is on there, but I pick and choose what I want them to see. My father, his adultress, and my sister cannot see anything but my basic info. I've tested that theory by blocking my husband the same way, logging in and seeing if it worked. I switched him back to regular settings though. If you don't want to add them, you don't want to add them. It's your account. People take this stuff way too serious.

  • My kids are too young for Facebook but I do find it strange you'd not friend your husband.

  • Nope, my husband is my friend on fb and so if half of my family isn't that teh point of fb? To stay connected with friends and family. Are you hiding something that you dont want them to see?

  • There are some extended family members that I have blocked due to drama but I would NEVER think of blocking my Husband or Child. What is it that you are hiding? What if your Husband blocked you? Is that okay with you?

  • I can say that I would be concerned if my husband blocked me from his facebook.

  • I think it's extremely rude. Got something to hide? Cause that's what I would think if I were your husband.

  • Sorry, I find it very strange to not friend your immediate family from your Facebook account. My family is very important to me and I have nothing to hide. I am proud to have him listed as my husband. If my son was old enough and had an account, I'd definitely want to be his friend so that I could monitor what was being said on his account.
