I’m sorry, I haven’t read your post yet but I just had to say that when I read your thread topic, I somehow omitted the last word and thought it was going to be a post about how your Darling Husband is attracted to a hideous, falling apart 30+ year old woman.   I can’t stop laughing now…. sorry, I just had to share!  Now to go read your post!

Personally, I would go out and buy a new comfy chair and once it’s bought, he will probably love it.  Is there a garage or a shed that he could move his chair to if he’s got that much sentimental attachment to it?   If not, whilst he’s at work one day, I would break the chair completely – “accidentally” of course!  Oops, I just sat down in it and it broke!  

I can’t believe though that if he had a new chair to sit in and realized how comfortable it is, he would still insist upon hanging onto the old, crappy chair.  Good luck!

@FutureMrs.Harless: Could you maybe set up a pretty privacy screen/partition that goes with your room decor and makes that area a little more ‘office-like’ (i.e.- hidden from view?!).

And maybe purchase a great chair, but don’t put Frank out to pasture yet. Let your hubs work his way into the relationship with the new chair, and maybe, one day, he can let Frank go to recliner heaven. 😉

@Ree723: LOL, I read it the same way! I was thinking, “hey I’m a 30+ woman whose body is falling apart and my Darling Husband is attached to me, no need to be so harsh…” At least I’m not hideous though 🙂

@FutureMrs.Harless: Maybe you should read this to him. Any woman who writes an entire short story about a chair (and a compelling one at that) deserves to win over the chair.

I feel your pain! We have a “franken-couch” living upstairs. It’s old brown velour (torn of course), the springs poke through…and the only one who uses it is our old cat. I tried to convince SO to get rid of it, but he won’t. He is really attached to it and told me that it’s like a “member of the family” (WOW LOL) I gave in because he doesn’t care when I change anything else.. I was able to go out and purchase new couches for the living room, so the ugly old couch can just stay upstairs. It’s too bad though, because we could really use a sofabed up there for guests, but he refuses to trade. I hate it, but I view it as something that means a LOT to him, and he really doesn’t ask for much, so it stays. Maybe try seeing the chair as something that has great sentimental value to him.
