Please let me know if I am wrong.

My husband yesterday was complaining that there are no pictures of him throughout our house.  I have pictures of our daughters everywhere from when they were babies up until now.  There are no pictures of me either.  He actually wined about it to me.  I thought that was kind of odd. He said that if people were to come over and see the pictures you would think that our daughters only lived in our house.  Now I use to have pictures of me and him together, but then I took them down because we were going through some hard times and I did not want to be reminded of the good times I had with him.  I never put them back becaus I am still soar about us.  I know it is kind of juvenille, but that is how I feel. 

So please let me know if it is just me or is him taking this way to serious???  What do you think?

Jun. 2, 2008 at 5:25 PM Perfect plan for you!!!! Go get pictures made together and then put them up!!!!!!  And if you are tight on cash you can log onto the picture people and and print out a free coupon for a 8 by 10.  And also Jcpenney has great deals and you can get a lot of different portraits done...like one of just you and your husband and then one of the family...

Wow.  My hubby complains about too many pictures of him being up!!

I understand what you mean about taking them down when times were bad.  It would be my first impulse, too.  However, you guys are husband and wife through good times and bad.  Just because you are going through a rough time (in general, not just in your case) doesn't mean you're not married anymore.  If anything, maybe looking at the pictures of you guys having a good time can remind the both of you of why you married each other and why it's worth working out whatever problem you have.

Try and humor him: put one picture of the two of you up and try to remember what was special about that day.  Was it a day at the park?  A party? 

 I wish you the best!

Jun. 2, 2008 at 5:28 PM Considering you took them down for a REASON and he has noticed they never went back up probably makes him think that nothing has changed for the better. I agree with the others ladies go get new pictures taken of the FAMILY and of the 2 of you.

I do have pics of me and my hubby framed  in our bedroom but there are no pics of him anywhere else. I actually dont have a bunch of my kids up anywhere either. We only have artwork up. I am still decorating nad want to put up a bunch of black and white photos of the kids and us.. I think I will put my hubby in there though.

It is perfectly understandable why you dont have them up.. but he is being way too sensitive..

I only have one pic of Greg and I up  downstars and one pic of us in our bedroom along with the girls pics and I have a lot of pics of other family/friends and of course my girl babies... I think it's nice that he feels left out... sort of...I mean, I just hope HE understands why there are no pictures, I hope he understands the premise behind them not being up... I think as long as he understands and you two can get past the difficult time then def take NEW pics and put them up, if not then it still seems like more talking needs to be done.... 

hope this helps...
