Is anyone else having difficulty with their wife accepting their beard? It has mostly been the last three weeks. I have tried the Amish beard to keep hair away from kissing zone. Is there anything I can do to resolve this problem?

don't know if the "spinoff" is a tradition on this forum, but I find them fun. Usually they should be rated with a number 1-10

10 if especially clever, and following the basic pattern of the first post. I would give my own spinoff (though you would never rank your own) a 5

Try using some conditioner to keep it from being scratchy. Some guys just have prickly beards and nothing will change that....I speak from experience, my husband is a stubbly scratchy mess all the time.

I've had a beard since I met my wife. I shaved it off one New Year's Eve and when she saw me she screamed and nearly called 911, thinking I was an instruder who had broken into the house.

In short, she'll get used to it, only bringing in up in arguments, after a few weeks Wink

Simple answer, shave it off if you're not terribly ugly underneath. If you are, leave it and she'll be glad to work with it Laughing

I usually keep mine at a long goatee, I keep it trimmed so its not bushy and out of control, but long. Then after about 3 or 4 months of this Ranelle ( my wife ) usually comes up to me with a small trash can and a pair of shears and says in a really sweet angelic voice " Honey you should let me trim your beard" sounds sweet but in reality it translates to " If you dont let me trim and shorten that up, your gonna wake up with a Columbian Neck tie!!!!!! oh and I love you " True Story!

I run with the shampoo and conditioner in the beard every morning. I try to only clip it once or twice a week as the cut hairs are sharper. Mrs Jers still isn't a supporter of the beard but we have reached an acceptable level of détente.

Tell your wife to get used to it. I told my wife point blank when we started dating that there were certain things I would never do and if she didn't like it she could hit the road. One of those was stopping smoking, the other was shaving my mustache.

Fortunately for me neither really bother her. Although when we kiss too much she sometimes acquires a touch of black mustache wax on her face. Of course I get lipstick on my face so I consider it quid pro quo.

Is she wanting to go Amish as well? You'll have to stop smoking, no more booze and she will have to wear a bonnett and a long dress and high lace up soes. I understand mid-life crisis's but isn't this one a bit extreme? Twisted Evil It's just hair, shave it off and be done with it Razz If she doesn't like what you have now, more's not gonna get any better. Lifes waaaay too short to hassle over hair Twisted Evil

on another forum when someone would post a thread where one word, or better yet letter could be changed to completely change the meaning, we would do spinoffs

So someone posted a thread:

Board Problems?

I then posted this thread

Beard problems?


It reads the same as the other thread. Now its not funny really, until you start looking at other threads. You start looking at ways to spin off other threads. You start wondering if your thread is worded well.

It is pretty amusing. I was trying to bring that tradition over. But, seems like a big fail... wont be the last time Smile

There is a board I am on where spin offs are very popular, but there is a specific place on the board for those.

I second this motion. I used to post some on The Experimental Fist music forum, and they did this a lot. It can get kind of unruly and off-topicish, but meh. I think it's fun./

My wife like the tightly trimmed beard. I take it back down to a #1 on the clippers each week. The lips pucker out far enough for kissing. Wink

lol! lol! Total win Rev!

I'd noticed the similarity between the two threads, one above the other in the list for The Round Table, but completely missed that it was deliberate. You got me and everybody else.

I like the way you roll sir!! cheers cheers
