like Cinderella who should be-at-home-by-twelve thing? i don't really set curfews though. but when he tells me he'd be home at a specific time, i'd definitely expect him to do what he said he would. if not.. it's going to be world war 3.. LOLz

My husband is never out late enough without me to need a curfew. He works until about 10:15-10:45, depending on how long it takes to close up the store, but he always comes home when he gets off work. There's no reason for him to be out late without me, really.

I do not set a curfew for my wife. I do not set a curfew too. but for my child I would definitely set a curfew for him. but I do want to know where she is going and went. I would call her when she is still outside and its already late. I would definitely want to know if she is okay and if she would want me to pick her up. and if everything is alright I would then go back to sleep.

haha, WW3 is definitely a scary thing. but you know there are also things that tend to happen along the way. you know, those unexpected ones. so perhaps it's also good to listen to his explanations. no worries if you know your husband, you can even tell if he is lying or not, am i right? well, my point is consider reasons and causes, but definitely not alibis :)

I don't believe in the curfew thing either I would start feeling like my husbands mother if I did that..I agree with you when he says he going to be home at a certain time he better be or it's world war 3 lolz. But I know that time can slip away from you so it's even worse if he don't call me to let me know and I don't know about you but I know my husband has a rough time sometimes with picking up a phone and we both have cells lol...is it a man thing?

hi babysunget! i never set curfews for my husband. He does not go out that often so I allow him to go home whatever time he wants when he goes out. I let him be because it's his "me-time". He does the same for me, so we kinda get along really well when it comes to this.

Nope! The way I look at it... I am his wife, not his mother. Like many of you, as long as I know where hes going, who hes with, and about what time hell be home... hes good to go!Now, if he should get home later than he said... and didnt call me... Im sure I wouldnt be none too pleased, and Im sure I would speak my peace about it. But I trust my husband, and for the most part... if he goes somewhere... he takes me with him (sometimes whether I want to go or not... but i dont usually tell him i dont wanna go hehe). Besides, the only time he has ever gone out on his own without me and came home late was when he was his best friends best man and he had to come up with the whole "bachelor party" and he took his best friend to a couple strip clubs lol. Other than that... in the entire 4 years we have been together and almost 2 years of being married... hes only been out of the house without me once(other than for work of course hehe) and that was when he went over to his friends house and I didnt want to go. He stayed a few hours... and came home. I know most of the friends that he would hang out with and we are cool with them, so no harm, no fowl!

No I don't set a curfew for my hubby. I trust him and if he says he will be home by a certain time he usually is. If he isn't there is usually a good explanation or he calls me and lets me know he is running later.

I tried setting a curfew before with my husband during our first year of marriage. But we always just end up fighting. Honestly I grew tired of it, Now my rule is, as long as he tells me where he is going and who is he with then thats fine with me and always to keep in touch even just through text like if he is already on his destination, or if he is on his way home so that I'll know what time I expect him to be home.
