How many women out there think that we really do have to go the extra mile to keep our men at home, and not out and about doing stupid things (you know what I mean).In this disposable society, is it really harder now to keep things right at home?

I'm not sure what you mean by stupid things, but I don't believe it's harder at all. I don't work hard to keep him home at all.

I'm not a woman but wanted to share tough,I think that respect is the key mother.

I am a woman and I have to agree. When I show my husband respect our relationship seems to bloom all over again. I will say though that I think that an extra mile mentality comes in handy when you have been together several years (12 for us) its not that you are working to keep them home but woking to keep the relationship from getting stale. After 10 years you can begin to take them for granted and well become boring for lack of a better word. In that way I think we must work to fight for our loved one. (Husband or wife) Trust is not all there is to it.

I personally wouldn't be with anyone I felt I had to work to keep at home. If I can't trust my partner, then they're not my partner. It's as simple as that for me. My husband isn't out doing stupid things if I don't keep my eye on him, and I don't feel like I have to watch him or keep him on some sort of leash.

Yup, it seems like simple enough logic to me! :P

I don't work hard at keeping my man at home at all. He has rights to step out and be on his own as do I. The big thing that you should have with your man is trust. I don't think you trust your man fully. I trust mine fully and sorry everyone does stupid things once in awhile.

I don't think you should have to go the extra mile, you either have a faithful partner or you don't. My husband and I have been togheter 10 yrs. we both trust each other and we both do what we like to do sometimes it is without the other. We both work at keeping things at home and its not any harder now than it use to be. Have a great day!

My husband is actually one of those rare cases where I can't get him to go out of the house and give me some peace and quiet. He wants to do everything with me and I actually have to tell him to take a night out with the guys. When he's gone he calls me to let me know what he is doing and to make sure I'm okay. I have health problems so that is why he's always worried about me. Not a possessive thing. It actually makes problems because people think that it's me taking out the whip not letting him go out.
