Huge pet peeve of mine is when dh asks my permission. I know he has geek group on Fridays, a simple, "just reminding you my gaming group is tonight" is more than sufficient. I can let him know if we have a scheduling conflict, but every week he asks for permission. I don't mind that he goes, I'm glad he has a social outlet. he deserves to go have fun, but damn he is a grown man. I love that he keeps me in the loop on what he's doing but he does not need my permission.

Lol, I like that he wants to keep me in the loop, but he's my husband not my kid. Lol I know it's a petty thing to be irritated about.

It's probably more so to respect you than ask permission. It's better to have a dh that respects you enough to ask/check in with you. My dh does the same, and he knows he doesn't need my permission.

I dont see it as asking permission, but more like do you mind if he goes and there arent other plans.

Anytime something comes up for my husband he always makes sure we dont already have something else going on. I dont always tell him FIRST if we do either.

I know, my dad was really controlling so I'm just sensitive to this stuff. I just wish he would just let me know instead of asking kwim?

Yeah I guess I could see it this way. I can try and change my reaction to this. I totally realize this is a me problem and not so much a him problem

Does it irritate you too? Or is it more like just double checking for schedule conflicts?
