  • No, because that's pathetic. I'd tell him to get the fuck over it, I use it to keep in touch with people so he just needs to leave it alone.

  • I would be annoyed, but yes I would delete it to keep the peace, shut him up and save the marriage.

  • My marriage is far more important than fb, so I would delete it if he asked me to. You two can work on his insecurity issues over time, but if that is something that helps now, then I would for sure.

  • It might be stupid, unless he has a reason to legitimately complain about you having the account. I know sometimes online infidelity can really hurt a marriage, not saying that is the case but I am willing to bet that that is what he is fearful of.

  • Honestly, I wouldn't. But thankfully, I don't have to worry about DH giving me that kind of ultimatum. He'd know better. ;)

  • I wonder do you ever feel that he might isolate you from friends or family apart from Facebook? If he is seriously concerned about safety issues, security and privacy of Facebook, that is one thing. He should not be giving you ultimatums like that... but maybe those concerns are real for him. I could accept that. However, it is another thing entirely if this is just about wanting to be able to separate you from friends or others people socially. That would indicate a much bigger problem, in my opinion and if that is the case you should not go along with it.

  • If it was my marriage or facebook I would chose to delete facebook. I would discuss why he hates facebook so much though. It can cause drama but it is my primary contact for the majority of my family.

  • I have deleted my facebook due to this already. I didn't mind one bit. My relationship with my husband is far more important than seeing status updates each second. There has been a lot of cheating going on, and it all revolves from facebook. Old boyfriends contacting you and sending you messages. Wives (even husbands) sending back messages that just shouldn't be exchanged. It had ended a lot of marriages. I don't think your husband is trying to keep you away from your friends and your family, I just think he's worried about old boyfriends reconnecting with you, or you trying to go back to some old lifestyle from your teenage years.
    Save your marriage, delete it. There will be one thing you just want your husband to stop, just because. Do this for him so later he can do the same kind of mind-easing favor for you one day. All you're doing is easing his mind by getting rid of it. Nothing wrong with that.
