Ok I'm in a bit of a predicament. Now our history is that we have been very religious and I had always worn skirts or dresses to the ankle as did our two girls. Two years ago I pretty much had a breakdown and nearly left him. I completely changed me. Or rather I found me. Now I wear pants and shorts and he accepts it. Though at first he hated it and called me a rebellious person and had no respect whatsoever for me. Now, he accepts my clothing and it even is attractive to him but he is so severly set on our girls never wearing pants that it is very difficult for me. My oldest girl is nine and the younger is 4 and neither understands why I can and they can't. My 9 year old sometimes cries because she isn't allowed to be like me. I have talked to him multiple times about it and he will not budge. I have even been denied giving our oldest daughter a pair of gaucho like pants (looks alot like a skirt when on) for Christmas that I had bought her. On the other hand, my girls just look so....rough....because there clothes are kinda worn and they don't fit right and they would just look so cute in all those girls pants. He says he wants them to be special and not like all the other girls out there. I think that is absurd! They will always be specail! They are OUR girls and nothing will ever change that.
Not really sure what to do about this, but this is just one drop in a bucket of filthy marriage water I am trying to wade through. I am really trying very hard to make this work but there is still so much to get through.
