  • Depends. If he does it every night, stays gone until the wee hours of the next morning, doesn't let you know, ignores your calls and lies about it and treats you like crap when he finally does roll in, that is not acceptable. If he does it rarely, calls to let you know beforehand and comes in at a decent hour, that is quite a bit easier to deal with. I would have to wonder what another poster did. I'd be surprised that after working 16 hours he had the energy to go out for beer.

  • Depends if he does it every single night or not. If he does it every single night - selfish. If he does it once in awhile - deserved.

  • Deserved. But couldn't he bring a six pack home and relax with you and the kids??

  • that could go either way. Id think he'd be TO tired to go out after working 16 hours.

  • I would prefer that he bought the beer and brought it home instead.

  • I agree buy some beer and coming home seems more relaxing.

  • Deserved.... he had the curtsey to call and ask and you said he could go.

  • Once in a while I think it is fine. I would be set if it was every night.

  • based off what you put in the responses Id say your hormones are getting the best of you. He was polite and called and asked. He didnt tell or try to do it behind your back. Sounds like you should ease up on him a bit and let him have his down time. Bitchy wives do not get anything reciprocated... nice wives do. So dont jump all over him when he gets home.
