I don't think that rules should be made...I know plenty of women who make lots of ridiculous rules that their husbands need to live by too. Rules are about control.
As long as the mate's expectations are within reason...they're the person you're married to why not try at least to make them happy? If they are truly insanely jealous and/or control freaks...it comes out in other ways besides clothing and no one should have to deal with that.
But if we're just talking about an inch or two of length on a skirt, is it worth it to make a point and disappoint your mate? I don't think it is...but whatever.
I guess the only man I care about pleasing is the one I've been in love with for 10 years. Not that I haven't had other interest, I just don't care to dress for anyone but myself and him.
I agree with whoever said that it's sad that people have 'problems' like this. Anyone throwing a fit about their clothing has no idea what real problems are.
essie ~of the I don't have to dress like a working girl to prove I'm an independent woman, class.
ps. in rereading the original post I saw that the question was "Do you think a married woman should go out provocatively dressed?" Where is she going? If she's going out on the town with single girls and dressing like one too then this guy has more problems than he realizes coming down the pike.
