Husband Tells Wife To ‘Get Over’ Herself And Start Wearing Makeup Because It Bothers Him.
Makeup is a wonderful invention. It has assisted individuals in various ways, and it may also assist individuals in expressing themselves. However, it is not for everyone. Read this story of a wife who dislikes applying make up and let us know what are your thoughts on this.
My (32M) wife (29F) and I have been together for 5 years, married for just over 2. One issue that’s cropped up over our entire relationship is her refusal to ever wear makeup. I think she’s beautiful without it, but there have been times and occasions where it was expected/appropriate for her to wear makeup and she refused.
For example, she didn’t wear any makeup on our wedding day. Both of our mothers tried to convince her, but she said she’s never worn makeup and she wasn’t going to start on a day that she was supposed to enjoy. They tried to tell her the pictures wouldn’t come out as good, and honestly they were kind of right – she’s got huge bags under her eyes and I think the photos would’ve been nicer if she’d just put on concealer or something.
Now it’s come up again with my family – we were at a family dinner last night with my parents, sister and her husband, and my niece and nephew. My niece is 11 and has just started getting into makeup – she watches lots of YouTube tutorials and stuff like that. She asked my wife at dinner if she ever wore makeup and my wife said “no, I don’t bother with it.”
My niece asked why and she gave a little speech about makeup being a waste of money and that she’d feel like she was lying to herself if she wore it and that she was “happy with the face I have.” My sister got mad and said that she wore makeup a lot of the time and didn’t feel like she was lying to herself and that it actually made her feel good. My wife responded “oh yeah. I bet you could quit anytime you want.” And then kinda laughed, which set my sister off and let’s just say the rest of the evening was not enjoyable.
When we got home, I asked my wife if she would please be less militant about makeup. I said it wouldn’t kill her to wear it and I admit I did accuse her of being overbearing about her stance. She basically said that she never started conversations about makeup but that it’s always other people bugging her to wear it and I said “maybe they have a point and you’re being hardline over something really stupid and you need to get over yourself” and she got upset and called me a dick for thinking she needed makeup and then we had to go cool down separately. Am I A Jerk for thinking she’s being ridiculous about makeup and telling her to get over her aversion?
