Today's social dilemma came from an acquaintance of mine. He sent me this email yesterday and asked if I would use it as my social dilemma because he's trying to let his wife know why he's so upset. She doesn't think she did anything wrong. He's hoping by hearing what others say, it will sway her, but I told him, you might disagree but he's willing to take the hit. Here's what he wrote: "My wife got her belly button pierced last weekend. I am very frustrated about this. She is 48 years old. At her age, she shouldn't be getting her belly button pierced. That's something teenagers do to make their parents mad. She is a grown woman. When I asked her why she said "because I wanted to do it for a long time, so I just did it." I think that's a dumb excuse. She never even told me she wanted it done. I wouldn't go and get a tattoo without at least talking to her about it first. She should have asked me before she got it done. Don't you think so?" Hmmm, interesting question. Well, I do think it's her body and she gets to do with it what she wants. On the other hand, it would have been nice to tell her husband first. However, I admit that I once got a tattoo without telling my sweetie, but it didn't cause any drama at all, probably because it was small and on my ankle So what do you think? Should have have to discuss a move like this with your spouse, or is it "your body, your decision" I guess I feel that as long as it's not a full body tattoo or piercing it's not a big deal. What do you think? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
