So I have been a consistent lurker on Weddingbee since I first found this site looking for help with my bridal shower last spring. My now-husband knows that I read this site, and I love forums, but I am pretty sure he was unaware that I ever post… Until tonight. I was typing out our wedding playlist, and he was all, “What are you doing? Can I read what you are typing?” So now the secret is out. I really hope he isn’t mad about anything that I’ve ever posted. and I guess I just hope he doesn’t go snooping for no reason. Anybody else have a husband who might not want you commenting or is just overly curious whenever he sees you typing when you’re not on Facebook, Google, or email?

My partner knows I comment/read/post and has no issue with it as long as I respect his boundaries & privacy.
No my partner is not overly curious when I am online typing, he might ask if I am looking at something (I do a lot of research/self-learning, some of which interests him as well) but if I say “email” or something such like he gives me my space/privacy.

Darling Husband knows I’m on here all the time and about my role as a hostess (mainly because I nearly burst from excitement). He’s never “snooped” and read my posts or profile that I’m aware of. He’s not really a snooping kind of guy. Plus if I’m upset about something and I post about it here, I’ll typically tell him “Well the girls on WB said/suggested….”. I think he likes that I have a place to share with and to vent to occasionally.

Completely unrelated to the post but husbands is my last name and I got a little freaked out when I saw the title. In any event my fella doesn’t usually mind if I’m on this thing. He just rolls his eyes and goes back to checking his stocks.

@farmgirl2106: I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t tell my husband about this!
He saw me on once but asked why I’m still reading wedding blogs after the wedding.
I don’t know why I don’t tell him, I think he’ll think I’m dorky or something. He’s got his sports boards though!

my fi is always like “weddingbee?” when im on the computer, so he knows im on here all the time but he has absolutely no interest in reading the blogs or getting on the boards himself 🙂 which is fine with me haha!

Jim knows everything I do online. I wouldn’t ever say anything online that I’d be embarassed for him to read. So it wouldn’t bother me at all if he came in here and read what I’ve written. I don’t think he would, because this site doesn’t interest him in the least, but it wouldn’t bother me if he did.

Fiance is always asking “Why are you typing so much? What are you saying?” but I think it’s mostly just to make fun of me. He’s actually a member of some random other forums (Sports, politics, etc) so didn’t think it was weird or off when I signed up.
I do show him blog posts often if it’s something I want to borrow. He’s pretty receptive to what the site has to offer! 🙂

My Fiance definitely knows that I’m on here (a lot) and that I am on the boards and post… although I don’t know if he realizes how MUCH I post lol. I told him about it pretty early on because not too long after we got engaged I posted a few pics of my ring to the gallery and it got chosen to be the gallery pic of the day. I sent a link to Fiance because I thought he’d be happy to see that his hardwork in choosing was getting appreciated on the www and he was totally thrilled! He even told his parents that my ring got featured “on some wedding website” haha.
He actually surprised me the other day though when we were talking by actually knowing the name of the website and how the bloggers are “Bees.” He said the concept sounded interesting to him so he poked around a little after I sent him the link. I asked him if he ever read the boards or if he’d ever read my posts he said no. I told him good thing and he had better not because I post pics of my dress on here and he better not snoop! 🙂

If I’m ever typing away on my phone and/or laptop fi asks if I’m “buzzing” and if I stay on the site for a while he asks if I’m queen bee yet, lol.
Apparently after I first told him about it he went on the site to see what it was about, and one of the top posts was a dress post so he swore he would never come back because he doesn’t want to see my dress before the big day.
And I’m pretty sure he already knows I’ll stay on after I’m done planning the wedding. For one thing, he knows there are baby/fitness/pet boards and I’m not going to stop enjoying those after I become a Mrs. and I was watching wedding shows long before we were engaged so I think he understands I just really like weddings!

Well I just posted my first post tonight, and my Fiance came in and asked what I was up to. I was a little embarrassed, because it was in part about him (It had to do with us starting very difficult grad schools within 6 months of getting hitched.) He just laughed and wanted to know what people had to say about it. He thought he was in the dog house cause he bailed on the movie we were supposed to watch. I wasn’t at all mad, he had some intense biochem test to study for. Never the less, I was pretty excited cause he brought me flowers and a cosmo magazine!
He is kind of used to my wedding craziness. I love the magazines, and probably spend way to much money on them, when 9/10 of them are filled with pictures.

Ha my Fiance just makes fun of me for my love of weddingbee… BUT he fails to acknowledge is obsession with his Jets Forum or his hockey forum or when it was on, his lost forum?? Anyways, i dont think hes overly curious of what i write, but when i get annoyed and he noticed, he usually just comments for me not to be a bitch.. at that point I pretty much delete what i was writing cuz hes probably right…

My husband knows that I am on here all the time! In fact when I saw I was featured on the Gallery of the Day photo yesterday I showed him all excited. He thinks Im a dork, but I dont care!

My Darling Husband is way too distracted by ESPN to pay attention to what I’m writing on the Bee! I’ve shown him the two reviews that were featured (my venue and makeup artist) and our Gallery of the Day pic (with my veil) and he almost fell over with excitement each time. But asking him to pay attention to the site for any more than about 10 seconds results in glassy eyes and a twitch towards the TV where the sports people are talking shop.

I play on the computer (facebook, another message board) quite a bit, but my SO doesn’t know about this board. The other day, he looked at my computer and asked what I was reading. I said, “none of your business”, although I’m sure he figured that it was wedding-related, since that’s the only thing I’m “secretive” about since I’m still waiting on a proposal. I just told him it was a girl board and people don’t like boys to read it.
