    Yes and no. When we’re shopping and walking around I will carry it but if I need to sort through jeans or something and he’s there I will ask him to hold it and he does it without complaint. I don’t think he cares one way or the other about it. If he said no I would just put it on the ground.

    If I’m in a shoe store or someplace where he knows I have to touch everything, he’ll offer to hold it for me. Smile

    He’ll hold it for me if I ask him to hold it for a minute while I’m doing something, but he doesn’t just walk around carrying my purse! Why in the world would I want him to do that?

    ETA: I would vote no, because I wouldn’t want him to.

    I voted other.  No he doesn’t hold my purse because I wouldn’t/won’t ask him to.

    He will if I am somewhere and don’t want to carry my purse for a second (if I need a free hand, bathroom, etc.) But other than that…no.

    @MapleMoose:  Ha! I always feel bad for the poor guy, too! My husband would never offer, and I’d never expect him to.

    I have never asked him to and wouldn’t consider asking him to.  If I don’t want to carry it then I shouldn’t take it, but that has never happened either.  He has asked me to throw his wallet and/or keys in my bag, but I cannot think of one occasion that he has ever carried my purse.  He would grab everything else out of my hands though.

    He offers to hold it for me when I am looking through racks of clothes or trying stuff on.  He even offers to hold onto the clothes I want to try on while I’m still shopping!  So sweet 🙂

    I have asked him to hold it while I go to the bathroom, look for a clothing size, etc.  He HATES it.  Most of the time he won’t do it.

    My Purse doubles as a backpack so when my laptop and books are in it it’s really heavy and he will carry itI with out being asked. If I am using my Purse like a purse…then not so much

    my Fiance always offer to hold my purse/coat/shopping bags/etc when we are out shopping. 

    i remember on our first trip to an outlet mall, we were in ‘coach’ and they were having a labour day sale.  i wanted so many things.  we walked around the store with my Fiance carrying everything i wanted, 4 purses, 3 wallets, etc.  a couple of girls walked by and saw him standing there like a coat rack and commented, “what are we doing wrong?”.  i just smiled back and said, “maybe it’s what i’m doing right”. Wink

    If we’re at the store and I’m really getting a workout trying on coats or going through a clearance rack he’ll just take everything out of my hands and hold it for me, purse included. He doesn’t walk around with it on or anything…

    HAHA!  I love that song, and my husband refuses to hold my purse, like ever, except for MAYBE a split second if I’m trying something on and dont want to go to the fitting room or need to pick something up.  And even that is rare, cause he doesn’t go shopping with me cause “that’s what my girlfriends are for!”.
