Fashion Freedom or Marital Misstep?👗🚫

The man's seemingly innocent request has sparked a debate about personal freedom, respect, and the dynamics of a marriage. While he may have intended it as a simple suggestion, it's clear that this fashion faux pas has struck a nerve. The internet is buzzing with opinions on this matter, so let's see what the consensus is...🌐🔥

"YTA and believe me I wanted to say N-T-A because everyone wants to have a nice night out where they dress up and look nice once in a while. The way you tell this is that over the pandemic Grace has changed and you don't like these changes. You picked an expensive dress up restaurant and tried to force the issue, then got mad because it didn't go your way. The best way you could have handled this in my opinion would have been to say 'Hey I'd like us to dress up and go out somewhere nice in a week or two. Would you mind doing this with me?' This would give her time to prepare and get into the mentality of dressing up. For us men we make sure our hair is neat and throw on a suit. For the women I have known they go through mental preparations, shaving/waxing, make-up, hair, eyebrows, eye lashes, right dress/outfit and anything else I haven't thought of. You were demanding that she spend several hours getting ready for an hour to two hour date on short notice of course she turned it down." This dude gets it. Very tactful and something that can be looked forward to if it's the kind of thing she enjoys, or at least planned for if it's more of a "favor to my partner" kind of thing. I love getting dressed up, but having to pull together a look last minute, especially if I'm out of practice and my "going out clothes" are 2 pandemic years out of style and the wrong size, that turns something I love into something stressful. Hell, even when I've dated other hyper-femme women, we would plan at least a few days in advance, usually more, if we were going to do a fancy date. Getting done-up takes planning and work! (Also why ladies nights are usually planned in advance)"
