"I have been TRIMMING my wife's hair for the last 17 plus years. A woman's hair is her crowning glory. To cut it short is a symbol of punishment, and of shame. I love my wife and for me to chop off her elbow length hair would be a betrayal of that trust. I trust her and she trusts me. If I ever get to a point where I fear she is with another man, disparaging her feminity will not restore that trust. I have heard her say some co-workers wanted her to "donate" her hair for a cause that uses and/or sells it for support of their cause. Well I wouldn't want her to sell sex for Christmas toys as they have done in France, we give money to charities each pay day, I would not expect her to sacrafice her hair, sell tricks, or I to sell a body part or do a killing to support a "charitable cause". To cut or trim a women's hair is a matter of trust. If my wife woulodn't trust me to trim her hair, she should never have accepted my ring or agreed to raise our children. After 17 years, her hair is long, our children are in a home with two God fearing parents who love them. And by the way I have never given my wife a trim that has caused her to be upset or cry. I have had a couple of her friends ask to get their bangs or ends trimmmed and or evened up. But I would never dishonor them as women with a short hair cut. It would be just wrong. "
Uhh? Guys, is it just me, or is everyone else very comfused about Bill W's post?
Bill, I believe once again, you are a little comfused. The question was "would you let your boyfriend/husband cut your hair? As I'm sure you must have read, the people that actually said yes, also said their significant other just trims their hair (1,2 or 3 inches). Nobody is talking about cutting anybody's hair short( Not that there is anything wrong with that).
As for your comment about letting your s/o cut your hair being a matter of trust, and that your "wife would not have accepted your ring or agreed to raise your children, if she didn't trust you enough to cut her hair" I would have to say, "WHAT?"
. One thing has absolutly nothing to do with the other. I trust, love, and respect, my soon to be husband. We are both God fearing people as well, and I'm sure will also raise wonderful children. But he is not a hair stylist, so he is not cutting my hair
. Just like I wouldn't trust him to fix a cavity because is not a dentist. Now, he is both a lawyer and an engineer, so I would trust him to legaly represent me, or to design and supervise my construction project.
And I am really comfused by the whole turning tricks, and selling sex for x-mas deal
. How did we get to that? What does that have to do with the topic? Please belive me, I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just really comfused about your response. And how is donating hair for a good cause, comparable to selling sex or a body part, or killing someone?
If I have missunderstood you, please correct me, because I am really comfused.
I do gather by your comment about "a woman's hair is her crowning glory, and that to cut it is a symbol of punishment and shame", and "you wouldn't dishonor your wife by cutting her hair short", that you are talking about it from some sort of religious point of view
? I'm I right? Because if that is the case, the question had nothing to do with religion, so I'm even more comfused by the response.
I am a borned again christian myself. However I belive a woman's crowning glory is to be able to let the love of the Lord shine through her. Not to grow super long hair. However, this is not a religious forum and we do not discuss that type of matters here. We are here to share our likes or dislikes about hair. Our experiences about hair, good or bad, and to share advice with each other. Or other things such as fashion, shoes, share our stories about those subjects etc.
So if I'm missing something here, or I am the one who missunderstood, somebody please enlighten me, because I am totally lost with the above response.
