Does mom have a right to demand dad stop drinking the ocassional glass of wine because she can't drink now that she is pregnant or is she out of line to demand that of him?

Demand, no.

Respectfully request? Sure

That's a little crazy to insist on IMO.

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.
