The day after my fiance proposed he shaved his stubble into this ridiculous looking handlebar moustache a la 1970s and when I burst out laughing and told him to go finish shaving he tried to get away with ‘you said yes! that means I can do what I like now’. He honestly looked like a sad puppy going back to the bathroom with his tail between his legs…
If he could I’m sure he’d love some serious facial hair, but work wouldn’t allow it.

Ha, always. He looks like he’s 12 without facial hair! I love his beard.
Side note: I have a friend that doesn’t “allow” her bf to have facial hair? Is this weird or is it more common than I think?? Not trying to threadjack – it’s related?

I’ve only seen my hubby once in three years without facial hair. He typically sports a full goatee, like he did on our wedding day. I didn’t like the non-facial hair look and neither does he (thank goodness lol). P.S. Sorry the pic is so large.

Fiance has a hard time growing facial hair. He’s not a very hairy guy so it comes in all patchy. Right now he’s got a little bit of a stache and goatee but it’s been like 2 solid months and they’re still pretty thin. poor fiance lol. I love it though. Maybe if he keeps it going it will come in thicker….

I have seen him in a full beard (after hunting) and his normal goatee as he is below.
It suits him.

Mine has the constant 5:00 shadow. All the time. I <3 it! He says that in high school he’d shave in the morning and by 6th period they’d send him to the principal’s office to make him shave lol (they were obviously pretty strict about facial hair)

Ugh, my husband only shaves once a week and by day 5-7 I can’t stand it!

I love it, and I would Die if he actually cut it off!

I loove facial hair.
My hubby rarely shaves.
theres nothing like being scratched by the fuzz while getting kissed.

@AmeliaBedelia: Honestly, yeah…I find it a little weird when either member of a couple tries to control the other’s appearance, but this could be because I used to date a guy who was crazy-manipulative and emotionally abusive, and one of his big things was that wouldn’t allow me to cut my hair shorter than a certain length. Not that I’m saying this is what’s happening–I just have a really bad association!
My fiance didn’t have a beard when I met him, but he had some CRAZY ‘chops. He grew his facial hair out my freshman year of college (he was a senior in high school and decided to “surprise me” by turning into a mountain man, lol). I whined about stubble-burn and generally gave him a really hard time, but then I realized that he actually looked hotter than before! He has had a pretty full beard for the last three years, and I’m pretty sure if he shaved it now, I would cry.
Here’s a picture of us on the night we got engaged!

Darling Husband usually has one of these going on:
I just wanted to edit this to say, I don’t think I’d be okay w/ Darling Husband having more than his “soul patch” (or whatever you want to call it). I think anymore facial hair would be gross. I’m not down w/ mustaches and full beards.

@LittleMissBrassBand: Ha, no you’re right, I associate it with being controlling as well. He says it like “she won’t LET me” and then gives her the side-eye…I just find it awkward. If the man wants facial hair or doesn’t, that’s his call.
And maybe this is related to the fact that I find my Fiance sexier with facial hair…… lol.

I love facial hair, and I wish my Fiance rocked a beard, at least in the winter. But alas, he’s a financial advisor and needs to keep clean cut and shaven.
He has promised me that once we move to the mountains, he’ll grow it out again 🙂

My fiance has had a beard for quite a while now and I prefer him that way. He has such a baby face when he’s clean shaven so I think the facial hair makes him look more mature.
He really enjoys experimenting with different looks so I’ve seen him clean shaven, full beard, goatee, you name it. He also currently has a PERM because he wanted an afro like his dad had in the 70’s! He had a mohawk when we met…
