He’d be just like yours would be, lol. That is until he met another women to straighten things out a little. Although, I have to admit, him being with me, has straightened me out too, so I think he has def lengthened my years on this earth as well.

Haha I’ve already talked about this with my Fiance. Without me, he would become a mountain/country man. He would grow his beard out, go build a small log cabin out in the woods, and hunt and fish his life away. He would grill or crock-pot every single meal. I’m the one who gives us more ideas of things to do (build a garden, what to plant, what to compost, where to store our meat, animals to get, things to do in the area like participate in the local farmers markets and craft fairs). I keep him healthy. He is the do-er. He constructs, and builds, and makes my dreams a reality.

He would probably be more or less the same, probably less nice. I make him nicer. I think we both make each other better, but he wouldn’t be a lost cause without me.

Honestly/Unfortunately, he might still be trying to get over his ex-wife who cheated on him. He’d probably still be living in the apartment he was sharing with less than desirable roomates.

He’d be living with a couple of male roommates, drinking too much beer and acting like he was still in college. He’d probably be hooking up with a lot of random girls but not actually dating any of them. Man, he’s lucky he’s got me 🙂 Haha I’m kidding..but I do think our relationship has made him a lot more mature than he would be otherwise.

He’d probably be dating someone else. He’s quite self-sufficient and I find juvenile men who depend on women to be very unattractive. He would be just fine without me, although he is much better off with me.

+1 and thanks for this comment panda!! I was going through this like…wow…is it a bad thing that my SO is not that depended on me..maybe this means he doesn’t NEED me in his life…and what does that mean?!?! lol.
When I met my SO he was working on his PhD (still is), had a great social circle of friends and had already traveled/lived in different areas of the world. Quite sufficient. LOL-I will say that we were both thinner….I cook a LOT and now I’ve been trying to throw in healthier meals lately because we’ve both put on weight. So, he would possibly be thinner 🙂 And our two dogs, we did get together, he’d likely be without.

+1. I agree on the weight gain, lol. We’ve just made a switch to healthy eating too. Also, we wouldn’t have our furbaby or have shared so many wonderful moments.
If my husband would be sitting in his mother’s basement eating pizza and leading a pathetic existence, then he is not the kind of man I’d want to marry. I am attracted to ambitious and strong men, not men who are looking for a wife to replace their mother. Good lord. If you need a women to lead a fulfilling life than you are not much of a man.
I want a partner, not a dependent.

Eating ramen being a heathen. When we met, all he had in his fridge was beer, mustard a couple of steaks and then the pantry had every flavor of ramen known to man. He’s learning to cook though! I love love love to cook, and have started to come home to him making ME dinner watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. hehe

@Kate0558: I think he would be the same personality wise, but a little more lazy and less ambitious. 😉 He would probably not be living at a house like ours. I think he would have bought some sort of property and allowed his mother to live with him. The house would probably not be nicely decorated and would have too many family pictures on the wall (placed there by his mother). He would probably be catered every meal by his mother, and would be more immature and less responsible as a result of his having never left the nest.
ETA: My husband does all the cooking at our house, has a good career as a software engineer, and knows how to do many many things. In fact, he has done a lot of the remodel at our new house all by himself. I think he does a lot of these things for me, though. He has said it before that he would not do as much around the house if he didn’t know if was that important to me.

Mine would be pretty similar to Charlie Sheen’s “character” on Two & A Half Men. I don’t doubt it.

My Fiance would be miserable without me. Jk, lol, but he would be pretty lost.
I have a very good and photographic memory, so whenever he misplaces things or can’t remember details, I always have them stored. “Honey, where’s my social security card?”.. “It’s in our fire-safe box, dear”. Yep, that happened yesterday.
He would probably still be living at home with his parents and working a miserable job. He would most certainly not be continuing his education. He has an Associate’s, but I pushed for him to go back to get his Bachelor’s degree, as he couldn’t get a real job in his field without it. So he blames me when he gripes about school, but it’s all lighthearted.

Oh gosh… he would live off of fast-food. Spend all good time in the woods hunting or riding four wheelers. I don’t even want to think about that the house would look like… Oh and he would still be cleaning carpet rather than enjoying the degree he finally finished.

He actually plays this card from time to time, “I don’t know what I’d do without you I’d probably have moved provinces for a third time because I wouldn’t be talking to my parents again, living in someone’s basement, doing a job I can’t stand, playing video games till 3am every night and drinking way too much. I wouldn’t own a company or a house and I’d probably die alone.” LOL Well glad I was able to turn everything around for you!

@Kate0558: a slob…. oh he still is one NVM… 🙁
