Another question for you, #2


Do you remember the Milton Bradley board game Scruples? I loved playing that game with my friends because I always learned so much about them. Now it's your turn to play. It's very simple.

1. Read the question
2. Answer Yes, No or Depends in the comments with your answer to the question
3. In addition, predict what my answer will be

Here we go:

While glancing through your spouse's college yearbook you read some rather explicit remarks written by an exceptionally attractive classmate. Do you question your spouse about the inscription?

Update 2/10 8:50 pm:
Your answers:
YES: 12
NO: 4
It depends: 2
Other: 1

My answer:

In the beginning of our relationship I would have been really really interested in his answer to this question. Jump ahead 22 years and I am mildly interested and there is probably a funny story behind it. I could imagine him saying this:

"My roommates took my yearbook while I was sleeping and wrote that as a joke. Her picture was right next to a girl I dated and they were trying to get me in trouble."

Even though I'm interested in the answer, I want my husband to think I'm wonderful and that I trust him. I can't think of any way to ask him where I don't come off sounding insecure and needy, neither of which sounds very attractive. He doesn't deserve to be questioned about things like that after all these years of model husband behavior. After nineteen years of marriage I'm very confident that there is nothing to worry about, so why stir things up. The only thing I have to gain is my curiosity satisfied, but I would lose a small bit of my husband's respect. I'll try to keep his respect. My answer is no, I won't ask him about it.

I say no. I'd probably joke about it. Well, I guess I say it depends... We met and were engaged during his junior year of college. So if it was before that, then no, I'd laugh about it. If it were after that... Well, he'd have some answering to do!!

You: It depends. Dunno why, but that's what I think.

And, I'm so sorry about your cats. I have 3. We really should find a new home for one of them because I don't think he is happy here with 2 others and 2 kids. If you lived closer, I may consider letting you adopt him! :(

Oh, I'd LIVE to get this kind of dirt on him now. I'd embarass him and tease him incessantly about it. But, back when we were dating or first married, I'd have been jealous. Being married 15 years really mellows you out, I think. HA!

I think you'll say NO.

Oh, and I guess that means I'd say YES I would question him, but only in a joking way...not out of concern.

Yes, I would ask him about it.
You-probably not because you would respect his privacy.

Barbara: thanks for visiting me again. Bobby is Detective Bobby Goren from Law & Order Criminal Intent. I started blogging when I came across his blog and found like-minded people; we are all fans of the actor Vincent D'Onofrio. I have another blog http://mrsbgoren.blogspot.com where I write stories as his wife. Silly stories, but usually funny. I love your blog, but I think coming from across the Pond, I'm not au fait with a lot of it.

How's the new job?

lotsa luv ann xxxxxx

You- no

Me - no. I know all the girls he went to college with as we went to the same school. If he did explicit things with them I don't really want those images in my mind, LOL. I'd hide the book again.

o.k., I forgot to say what I thought you would do --- you would ask about it (but in a funny way)
I'm trying to write in the dark while a class watches a dvd about rhythm -- I've now seen it 31 times this week! Help!

I would ask, in a teasing sort of way. Provided of course that Brad knew I was looking ... let's not open that can of worms ...

You would ask, but in the same jokingly teasing manner.

Cheers!

Well this is totally hypothetical since DH doesn't have a college yearbook and was wayy too busy for girls when he was in college.

But if this did happen, yes I would tease him about it endlessly. "Who was she??? How was she???" LOL!

BTW: Dh went to a bachelor party last night for a guy at work. I asked how it was and he said "pretty lame!" LOL! I'll have to drag more details out of him later. hee hee

Your answer: Hummm I think that you are the curious type, so you would ask... but you are also self-assured so it wouldn't ruffle your feathers.

No, unless we were dating in college.

I'm with the crowd who would tease their husband, but would totally not be concerned or accusatory in any way, shape or form. It would all be in fun.

I'm guessing you would be the same as me.

I like this idea for a blog topic by the way. You are so creative here!

Yes, but only because I know our relationship is so strong. MY WIFE has a superb sense of humor, so I know it will lead to some laughs. And I know she is secure enough in our relationship that she needn't worry about whatever she tells me about the inscription.

As for your answer? I'm guessing that you would probably ask about the inscription, but that you'd not be worried about it in any way, perhaps similar to my situation. Of course, I don't know what your situation is at present, as regards a significant other, so...
