How much time is enough to spend in the shower?

My husband spends an hour in the shower or bath. He thinks anyone not spending an hour in the water is still dirty. I think his mom raised him that way. When we first came back from over seas, we lived with my mom she used to get pissed because all of the water he used. needless to say the hot water is cold when he gets out. How much time do you spend in the shower?

I don't really time it. I think that 10-15 minutes is enough time to get clean in the shower. I think that I would be late for everything if I stayed in the shower longer than that cause I need the other time to fix my hair,get dressed,put on my make-up, and all that other stuff people do to get ready.

I think that can be classified as a mild case of complusive behavior... some people just don't feel clean unless they spend a long time in the shower... My brother spent a long time in the shower also so I know what you mean

I husband happens to be compulsive in several areas, so it is not surprising...lol

I spend about 20 minutes in it on average, but sometimes it can be as low as 5~10 whilst other times over half an hour. It totally depends on how much time I have.

I only spend about 5-10 minutes in the shower. Our hot water heater is very small and old, and doesn't give us very much hot water, especially not first thing in the morning (and I am usually the first one awake). When I take a bath, I will usually stay in the tub a little longer than I would be in the shower, but even the bath water gets too cold for me pretty quickly.

I don't believe in a time limit when taking a shower, that's just crazy! ... One should take a shower till he or she is content. Just thank the Lord that you have a man that's clean ....LOL:-)

If you think you have already clean and refresh yourself, thats enough for a bath. I always spend maybe 10-15 minutes inside the shower room to clean myself. But I do spend some excess minutes particularly during those days where I don't go to work or occasion.
