I do because I love him, but seriously … I do not like it.
H yells from the bathroom: Where is that moisturizer … I need it.
H: Where is that really nice cream that was here last night?
Me: Hmm, where could I have put it? (I secretly know where it is, but this is expensive cream for my face that is for me and not you! You don’t need it. You’re not a woman … I cannot buy more just b/c you use gigantic GLOBS of it.)
Me: FINE it’s in my __(insert hiding place)__ and use just a little because I hate sharing with you but since we’re married and I love you … I will.

LOL…you should buy him his own less fancy one so you don’t have to share 😉

When I found my nice body cream on his nightstand … I went and bought him a less expensive version …
I guess this is what I’ll have to do w/ face lotion too.

I agree that you should buy him some less expensive stuff to use so he can glob it on if he wants!

buy him his own not so expensive moisturizer! i have the opposite problem, my fi is having trouble getting the concept of sharing. i have perfectly good lotion that he refuses to use. he went out and bought his own. mine’s better, and i’m always trying to make him use it. but he won’t.

This is so funny. It took my FI a long time to warm up to the idea of moisturizing. Now he does it every day. I don’t know if he knows (or cares) that he has his own and I have my special Lady Stuff.

LOL! This is very cute.
My husband and I have a sharing issue with leftovers (although I am probably more like your husband!) In my family, it was survival of the fittest, and if you put your leftovers in the fridge (especially leftovers from a restaurant), it was fair game for the whole family to eat. Like, let’s say we would go out for steak and bring the leftovers home, the next day you would go to the kitchen and say “mm I can’t wait to have my steak for lunch” and my dad would say “haha sorry I already ate it.” For some reason this was a big joke for us. No hard feelings, we would laugh about it, he would tease me about being “too slow” and that was that.
Well, obviously that is unusual behavior, but sometimes I can’t help myself. H willl put some leftovers in the fridge and leave them for more than one day… oh it’s so hard not to eat them. Sometimes I will eat half and he will be so sad… I’ve been trying to stop but…
Anyway, I understand.

Lol. Your leftover issue is too funny. =) One leftover we fought over most recently was the last slice of my moms famous chocolate cake … we like took turns sharing bites and I would take two and he’d be like NO FAIR! Lol. It’s hard sharing everything!

Early on I realized that my husband loved to share all my “fancies”. For example, when I met DH he used plain old horrible bar soap. Then I put my body wash in the shower and it was seriously empty like 5 days later!!!! What???!!! Turns out he loves the body wash! He also loves my toothpaste, any kind of expensive shampoo I put in the shower (I first found out because his hair smelled amazing!!) Gahhhh…..what happened to his old school cheapy products that he could use TONS of for cheap?!?!?! Seriously, once he discovered “the puff” he seriously uses so much body wash it looks like he’s frosting a cupcake!!! He also uses like 3 inch ribbons of toothpaste – WHY!?!?! But, he could have ALL those things and more if he would just share ONE thing with me….it is the ONE thing I have the hardest time sharing:
T.V. Remote Control. I H.A.T.E. his shows. He H.A.T.E.S. mine. Seriously, after 8.5 years together, we still cannot compromise on this.

When he uses yours, make fun of him for how girly and flowery he smells. That will stop him. Hahha. Of course, replace it with something a little more unisex smelling, “for his own good,” of course… 🙂

MrsK2be – had me CRACKING UP over the frosting comment! Way too funny! 🙂
I’m lucky and don’t have to share my mositureizer or body wash – he loves his Oil of Olay soap and I love my fruity smelling body wash. We do share regular lotion, but both us like the same stuff and I actually use more than him…which is weird b/c I’m only 5’1 and he is 6’1…oh well! 🙂

Haha, this is a funny thread. I will never again get annoyed that my husband doesn’t use moisturizer (even though I’ve told him countless times how important it is, especially to use one with sunscreen during the day), or buys cheap shampoo and conditioner (it’s the only kind that works!, he says).

You know what gets DH out of my beauty products? Telling him how much they cost.

hahaha we dont have any sharing issues with bath and body products. FI has his own body wash he likes bc it smells manly– more power to him. He does use my shampoo and conditioner although I’d bet when we live together he’ll buy his own. I don’t really buy expensive stuff though so maybe thats why I don’t care? haha. He stays away from my creams and whatnot.
We kind of have the leftovers issue though! Especially when we were first dating… it would bug me because if I made dinner? He’d take whatever leftovers there were for lunch the next day. If I bought dinner? He’d take whatever leftovers there were for lunch the next day. If he bought dinner? same. I didn’t always care bc I’m not huge on left-overs… but if I wanted them I never got them! haha. I figured out the solution: be direct. Here is my current game plan and it works well. “Fi… I’m putting THIS in the fridge for my lunch tomorrow mmk??”. It works. 🙂
