  • Do not know what you mean by Strict.

  • Not at all. He's a grown up and I express my feeling about things but in the end it's his decision what he does and where he does it.

  • no, neither one of us is a strict spouse - i just don't understand how you can have a marriage based on strictness - we roll with the punches - and laugh about things instead of getting all riled up about them.... we've been happily married for 46 years - i married a coach who was coaching 3 h.s. sports at the same time (in those days, it was legal) - i never knew when he would get home for dinner - so i stopped stewing about it very quickly and got with the plan - never knew when he would be home from school late because of teachers' or coaches' meetings or late after the game because he stopped with the other coaches for something to eat and drink (he would always call me in these cases) - i learned very early on not to get frustrated about him being late - this was his job - so we never had a problem with it - as so it goes

    Answer by pmg1030 at 5:48 AM on Sep. 21, 2010

  • Not strict per say, but respectful of each other...

    If he knows Im against something, most times he wont do it.

    if he askes me not to do something, He knows I wont do it. **He knows if he tells me not too, Thats the first thing Im doing**

  • Not really. I mean to the outside world I can see how it may look that way though. There are things I will just not stand for, but DH is the same way. Thankfully we both agree on those things.

  • No, he's my husband, not my child. If you are talking about respect, we respect each other, but we are both adults who choose this. We don't get upset about menial things. There isn't really any point. I want to live my life happily, not with a constant source of tension and frustration. Life is just entirely too short for that nonsense. If either of us feels strongly about something, we discuss it with the other person. We don't hand out edicts.

  • Not strict. Not at all. But we do discuss things that we feel would be ok or not, and we respect the other person's feelings about it.
