Do you let your husband go to bachelor parties? I’m usually pretty relaxed about what he does with his friends, but I’m a nervous wreck about this. I just have a feeling something is going to go wrong, or something bad is going to happen. I also don’t trust a couple of his friends and am afraid of all the strippers, drinking, and potential for trouble they present. Should I let him go?
I am not going to use this opportunity to express my opinion about how juvenile, disrespectful, pathetic, and depressing it is when men have nasty hooker-strippers at their bachelor parties. I’m not going to point out how ridiculous it is to celebrate the end of your single life by having a woman with fake boobs jump up and down in your lap while wearing a red pleather bikini.
What I am going to point out is that, despite my distaste, of course I let my husband go to bachelor parties. (He would angrily point out right now that he’s his own man and I don’t LET him do anything because HE DOES WHAT HE WANTS. And I would pat him on the head and say, Yes, honey, I know. Now don’t worry your pretty little head about it and go back to watching The History Channel.)
I let him go because I trust him. Do you trust your husband? If you do, then of course he should go. If you don’t, then maybe that’s something you should address. There’s no point in being married to someone you can’t trust.
