  • No because I would be unable to fake it or even learn about something I have zero interest in

  • Of course. I'm not at all interested in video games or golf but I put effort into learning about them because those activities make my husband happy.

  • Yes it does not hurt to learn something new! You may find out it was not as bad as you thought.

    Learning is part of growing!

  • Yes, I would. My grandma always says that the wife needs to always learn or do things that make the husband happy,(even if she is not interested) If the wife doesn't do it, they will find someone else to be interested in doing what they like. My husband loves horse racing and soccer, I hate both but I ask questions and try to learn just to spend time with him. Good luck girl!!!

  • Well, I learned how to golf from the x and it was never something that interested me beforehand, I love it now and consider it the only good thing I gained from our relationship, so yes, sometimes it's worth it..I vetoed learning about car stuff though, you pick and choose.

  • I got a vote down okay we are together because we have the same interests

    Answer by pinkdragon36 at 10:39 AM on Dec. 12, 2010

  • Sure, I enjoy learning and really do want to make my husband happy. It's not a matter of "faking it" it's a matter of having enough interest in him to care about what he is interested in.
