Not on your face. Though I do wonder when one should begin an anti-aging regimen...is is better to start in your 20's or is that just a waste?
Anyway. This is about fine lines in marriage. In this case, the fine line between being helpful to your spouse while trying not to be so helpful that you feel like the happy homemaker wife.
Not that there is anything wrong with the happy homemaker wife. What I mean by that is...the wife who puts her husband above herself all the time.
Here's the dilemma: My husband works a lot. And with indoor track season being under way, he's putting in 12/14 hour days at the office and he's gone pretty much every Friday and Saturday. I, caring greatly about his welfare, do my best to ensure that his time at home is as relaxing as possible.
This is where the fine line comes in. I want to be helpful to him--have dinner ready when he's had a long day, make sure his laundry is done so that when he packs his bag for his meet, he has plenty of clean clothes, etc etc. But it's hard for me to do this and not feel a little bit like the happy homemaker wife. I don't want to feel that way. I'm an independent woman, I don't like feeling like this 1950's suffocated housewife. And that's what all of this makes me feel like.
So far, marriage seems to me to be all about finding a good balance with your spouse. And here's another spot where I need to find a good balance.
How do you all handle stuff like this? Is it the other way around in your relationship?
