My husband casually mentioned that he was talking with his dad about me going off birth control.
So I freaked out. He was nice and apologetic; I was dumb-founded and wordless. I asked for five minutes of silence; he granted it.
But now I’m wondering, was my reaction unusual?
My side: decisions about very personal things like MY BODY and OUR SEX LIFE and OUR FAMILY are to be discussed between us before bringing in the parental unit.
His side: he wanted someone to talk to about it all.
And I do talk with all of you and my best friend, sure, but not my mom. Somehow, that seemed over the line. On the other hand, my brother reads this blog.
So now I want to know: what are your marital boundaries on topics like birth control and procreating?
