I don't mean things like planning a family vacation or anything... But I have been reading so many answers on here like "I want a tattoo but my DH won't let me" or "I want to go to dinner with friends but my DH doesn't approve of them" or "I was going to buy the kids new shoes but DH said no."
Seriously, I can't imagine asking to do stuff like that... Obviously if you want HIM to do something or want to do something that's going to affect him directly -or even affect his home (like redecorate) I would understand discussing it. But buying books or getting your ears pierced or cutting your hair? Umm... Really? He's my husband not my dad...
Am I just really mislead on what the word Partner means or did I miss some regression in the women's rights movement?

my husband cut off his goatee and i was majorly pissed. i would have appreciated him asking me how i felt about it beforehand, just like i ask him how he wants me to get my hair cut when i go. he is my husband and of course i'm trying to make myself more attractive to him in addition to boosting my self-esteem/confidence. as for the shoes or buying anything 'extra', i do run it by him if it's more than $20 because most people do have an allowance/budget for splurges and it's good to keep that in check. i don't see how that diminishes my 'womanhood' because i value my husband's opinion. the women's rights movement was about having rights equal to those of men. not ruling over them lol.
