My hair dresser thinks its absolutely normal for a woman to sleep with rollers in her hair, or a shower cap on, under which the hair is thickly coated with moroccan, olive or argon oil. When she told me that I should do this, I was absolutely horrified, to say the least. And not because she thinks my hair needs the extra hydration. What horrified me, is what it must do to her sex life if she goes to bed looking like a granny. She is young and newly married. All she needs to complete the look is to drool on the pillow.
For me it’s a question of respect. Out of respect for myself and out of respect for my husband, I don’t walk around the house in tattered sweats, or those gross looking pajamas that college kids consider outerwear. Out of respect for my marriage I make the daily effort to look nice. And my husband does the same.
I would not put up with a man who would walk around the house in his underwear, torn socks, stained shirts, baseball cap, scratching at his privates, belching, and so on. I would not want to have sex with him. I don’t even want to be subjected to watch a man brush his teeth, floss, check out the size of his pores, or the pimples on his back. Or worse yet, have me squeeze out the puss. Am I too suburban? Yes. Yes, I am.
I had a conversation with some friends recently. And while we all agreed that not all things can be avoided in the daily life of a couple living together, more than one half of the group believe that after a person is married, how one half of the couple presents itself to the other half isn’t as important as before. According to them unconditional love and acceptance are requirements of marriage. Are they? I don’t believe so.
What do you think?
