My Husband is Knitting...

MomLogic's Jenny: Drunk married men ... topless women ...??? Nah. My husband's just doing yoga. With the guys.

guys at a bachelor party

If it weren't for an obscene amount of television that I need to catch up on, I might be annoyed that my husband is at my brother-in-law's bachelor party while I sit at home on a Saturday night. Fortunately, the season premiere of "Grey's Anatomy" was riveting (hello, Dr. Hunt!!!) and the season finale of "Weeds" fantastic, so I didn't have  time to sit around and think about what kind of debauchery he and the boys were getting in to. In fact, I don't even care.

Seriously. I've learned my lesson and know that it's better (for everyone involved) to give it little heed and not think about what they're doing. Plus, I pretend that they are at a yoga retreat, or doing "lunch" followed by deluxe manis and pedis. OR maybe they're at knitting class sipping cosmopolitans! Yep, that's it! That's what they're doing. See, in my mind, there are no nudie bars or boys behaving badly. Instead, I tell myself that they are all sitting around, talking about how much they love their wives instead of roasting/toasting the bachelor and telling him to "get out now," or "your life is about to end" as they proceed to drink themselves into oblivion so as to numb their pain.

Ha. The phone just rang. Looks like my husband is actually on his way home. (Kind of early, actually). Hmm. Odd. Perhaps the bachelor got too drunk. Or maybe the scarf he's making for me didn't take as long to knit as he thought....

next: Yep, Penguins and Clay Aiken are Gay

I really don’t have to pretend that my husband would be doing something else. He would never go to a strip club or stay at a party with a stripper out of respect for me and our marriage. As I would never do it either. If you are married you should not be in the situations that have the opposite sex getting naked or that type of thing. Marriage is something that should be taken seriously. If you are still into going to strip clubs and things of that nature, then perhaps you should not have gotten married.

I am appalled at the amount of people that think that it is okay to do these things. Gee and we wonder why the divorce rate is so high. Could it be that we all need get some morals and focus on the one that we have and love and not the other things.

Get a grip. What is wrong with your husbands going to a strip club? It would be better for them to enjoy a night with a stripper ( a woman who they could never have in real life) then working late with a co-worker who looks ten times better than you and who he can probaly have. What does morals have to do with it?

I have heard to many stories about strippers leaving with men to make some extra money! you just have to trust your man
