Re: MEN: How important is your wife's support concerning your hobbies?
1. Work - You can't do anything without finances, so this is paramount.
2. Sex - I'm HD. Nuff said.
3. Cleaning - I'm a collector, so I must have organization. Additionally, I do my own laundry, my share of the cleaning and all of the yard maintenance. She cleans the bathroom because she takes 3 showers a day.
4. Cooking - I eat for sustenance. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy certain dishes, but I don't center my life around food. Honestly, if I didn't have to eat, I probably never would. That would eliminate the time-suck that is going to the bathroom.
5. Support for your hobbies (your wife as a spectator) - What I enjoy in my spare time makes me who I am as an individual. If she enjoys the same things, it's all good. We'd have something additional to share. If not, no biggie. Life goes on and I'll enjoy my hobbies by myself. For example, I enjoy attending sporting events and conventions. It's great if she goes, but I won't force her to go.
