We’re not engaged yet, so he rolls his eyes at me most of the time.  He always likes to hear the new thread updates though (or maybe just tolerates them? lol).

He thinks it is totally stupid, but since I have been on here for so long he gave up telling me how stupid he thought it was a few years ago.

My husband thinks it cute that I participate on an online forum. 

It sparks up some pretty interesting conversations between us. He finds the whole concept of people being obsessed with weddings very entertaining, so we’ve also shared quite a few laughs thanks to WeddingBee.

ChocolateLime:  DH doesn’t care how much time i spend on the bee.  I do spend a lot of work time here though :/

He does know that I ‘ask strangers on the internet’ for opinions on things – like our vacation dilemas last week.  He likes that the strangers on the internet mean he doesn’t have to listen to me ponder out loud as much!

He thinks the whole website is based off of women complaining about their husbands/SO’s. One time when I told him I was writing a post he got a little worried and was like “what did I do?!” I was quite confused, as I was asking for advice about laundry haha.

I have tried to explain the basics of the website, but I’m pretty sure he will forever think it’s all just women talkin’ shit.

He doesn’t mind at all. I really only post/view the bee during my down time.. waiting for a commercial to be over, while the dog is outside, ect.

He browses/posts on gaming forums, so it’s not really a shocker that I like forums, too.

My fi actually enjoys going through the ring threads with me. He finds it cute that I am on here especially since I am actively planning our wedding.

Yeah, he is surprised that I am active on a wedding website considering we’re already married. When he questions it I tell him I’m more active now, after the wedding, than I was before.

Fiance doesn’t mind. I think he finds it funny that I’m on the forum. Plus, I never say antthing when he’s on his Subaru forums 😉

He knows I’m on here, but, doesn’t really haven an opinion or ask questions. The only time we actually talked about it was when I got advice about an issue in our relationship to show him not everybody feels the same way about things and he basically said they weren’t real women then like the ones he knows. Going as far to say unclassy women stick together. The earlier days of our relationship were difficult to say the least…I’m glad we’ve grown together as we have. In our nearly 3 years.

My Fiance thinks it’s cute and always asks which bee “level” I’m on now with my number of posts (like blushing bee, helper bee, etc). We’ve dealt with our fair share of difficult situations throughout our engagement, and he likes that I’ve been able to find a good support community on here. I share things I post, especially when it deals with an issue that a family member has found confrontational, and the opinions on WeddingBee tend to fall in our favor. He’s also been extremely supportive when I get rough reactions on here to a situation that’s already harsh. He reminds me time and time again that if any of the negative commenters were in our situation, they would feel the same way as me and it’s hard to relate those feelings through a simple post. He’s overall very supportive of the Bee, and since it doesn’t control my life, he thinks it’s a good outlet for questions and ideas.

My fiance probably thinks I’m a little obsessed. He often rolls his eyes and comments when he sees me writing a long post. I sometimes tell him about interesting and funny threads, and once in a while show him. I’m on WB all the time at home. Just can’t pull myself away! I especially love dress polls! Our wedding is in May, but I might stick around after that because WB is so amusing and about more than weddings. Since discovering this site, I have spent more time on here than actually planning my wedding!

He doesn’t really mind, however he did speak up once or twice recently as I’ve been on the pregnancy boards and have metioned things about ”so and so said they did this” and what was different about my pregnancy…he wanted me to stop (i haven’t haha) because he was worried about me comparing my pregnancy to others (which is valid). He’s also really against doctor google!

ChocolateLime:  My Fiance thinks it’s great.  He and I talk about post all the time especially the ones where women complain about their ring and stuff like that. I had no say in my ring and i would NEVER complaing about it. 1 because I am completely IN LOVE with my ring,  2 umm you just dont do that and 3 the ring is a symbol of FI’s love to you why on eart would you complain.  He knows i’ve posted on the Bee and when i’m looking at dress threads and we are talking about some of the dresses he says oh wait i’m not gonna see you on here am i??? He don’t want to do a first look or know anything about my dress,

The Bee has actually helped us talk about stuff because of a post I read or I come across when we are chillin on the couch.
