I think its ridiculous (unless the man has a drinking problem or something).
i don't think mom has a right to DEMAND. ask perhaps, but not DEMAND.
Quoting marie2409:Demand, no.
Respectfully request? Sure
I'll be the naysayer (although I haven't read the other replies).
My OB told me that an occasional glass of wine during pregnancy would hurt nothing. Drinking a bit of wine or beer while breastfeeding is a GOOD thing.
Regardless, no Mom has no right to "demand" anything of the sort of dad.
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
Ask ..sure. Demand...no. The man is a grown adult he can have a drink if he wants.
Seriously? That's pretty rediculous IMO. My husband has apologized to me the two times he's gotten drunk while I was pregnant/now nursing. I just laughed at him and said he didn't have to apologize. Honestly, is having alcohol that big of a deal? I don't think so, but maybe that's just me.
I don't think so. Does a diabetic spouse have the right to demand his/her partner eat the same diet they do? Does someone with hypertension have the right to demand everyone eat a no salt diet? I'm pregnant, my boyfriend had a beer last night. Big deal.
