After the wedding vows were exchanged, he brushed his lips against her petite ear and breathed words reaffirming that he was her true love... and maybe a little controlling.
"I like you better without all that makeup," he said.
I'm still deciding how I feel about his comment.
On one hand, he's expressing his attraction to her natural beauty. Bravo.
On the other, is he establishing some relationship rules now that she is his wife? Perhaps his ideal is to see her in an ankle-length dress, her hair styled like a cinnamon roll. Is this a sign that there are more "suggestions" to come?
M.A.M., men against makeup, offer explanations... see if you agree:
"i dont just want to see you embellish your good features, i want to see ALL your features - thats what stuns"
"why not skip the fake bit and get straight to being real?"
"I've also found occasionally, that some first dates don't have all the polish, and so the reality kicks in sooner and I can decide quicker whether or not a second date should happen."
"you shouldnt listen to what those airbrushed charicatures on the tv say"
"i think any manner in which we show love, care, attention and respect to ourselves is good. I think it should be in that fashion though, and not out of fear of judgement or criticism."
