How many times have we ladies heard these complaints from our husbands...
Woman,you have taken all the space in the house.Why are there dresses in
my closet? Who moved my whiskey glass off the coffee table? Where are the
socks I left here last night? I want to watch the fights on tv,you can watch that
lovey-dove movie when I'm not here.Have you been using my razor again? Have
you been on my computer?What's wrong with your computer?

I admit that I have used all the storage space in our house for my stuff.I admit
that my closet is full and that explains why I had to put some special dresses
into my husband's closet.I had to put my boxed, wedding dress somewhere,I
didn't have the space for it. For the millionth time,I am not selling my wedding
dress.

We have a large,finished basement and that's where my office is,my craft room,
my pantry and my wedding inventory.I have taken all possible space in our home
for my use.

Of course I took away all the dirty dishes and glasses from the family room,I
didn't want any "science" project growing in them.I like to watch tv sometimes
too.As for his computer,mine had something wrong with it and I had to log on
ATS.I have never used my husband's razor,I have my own.But everytime his gets
dull,it's always my fault.

I know that we all need to have some personal space to call our own.I do have the
entire house to do with as I please.I have relented and now my husband has his own
man cave[office].I am allowed to vacuumn,remove dirty dishes and bring him his
drinks and snacks.I have to keep off his computer,not move his mouse,return to
it's proper place any book I take from his office[man cave].He has it decorated in
colors that he likes.He really likes having two, big monitors on his desk.All of his
books and paperwork are neatly filed and put away.He knows where everything is.
No female things allowed in there!I did put my outdoor plants into his man cave/office
I didn't have any place else to put them.

you dare defile a man cave with ..with.. plants? have you no shame?
j/k its cool that you gave him his own man cave though and clean up for him, cause we don't necessarily pay attention to our messes when we're occupied in there.

At first we were going to have a combined office in our home.
I didn't want to have my office in the same room as his.He has
his and I have mine.

Yeah, that's typical male behavior for you. If's always the woman's fault, and you'll never convince them of anything else. Really makes you wonder how patriarchal societies lasted more than five minutes since most men never actually seem to be able to take responsibility for their own actions.

I do believe men should have their space as well, but...

I've pretty much taken over our house as well, including both of my sons rooms, since they are out. Hubby has the garage, complete with fridge and t.v. and 1/4 of the basement, again with fridge, t.v. and pool table. My favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to his man cave, sit at the poker table and start painting my nails. It never fails to freak him out. "Don't spill that!" "Do you have to do that here?" "That #*%@ stinks!"

Three years running and he hasn't seem to figure out that I only do it to get a rise out of him.
God I love him!!!


BTW, you husband should be thankful that he actually has his own closet!

mamabeth, i don't know how you are at home but i have a wife and and 3 daughters, 2 of them are over the age of 20 and the other is under 10 and this is not my imagination nor is it an exaggeration haha but every and any flat surface, shelves, the top of cupboards or cabinets or just anything "flat" is stacked full and resembles a jenga game tethering on the brink catastrophe hehe of pretty much anything haha and the second something is cleared or something new arrives, like gremlins in the night, before i even see it happen something appears on it like magic. a persons space is a valuable commodity and i have none in my own home haha everyone has "stuff" and we all need room or a place for our "stuff" we are defined by our "stuff" but to much "stuff" is just bad. anyway.. i'm only one man against 4 females, even our 2 dogs are female. i'm out numbered and love my family but i would give up a "vital organ" for even the smallest "man cave" even if i did have one i fear it would be acquired by a hostel take over anyway haha

The way we women "see" your caves is the way they really
look.They way you guys "see" your caves is through derilium
caused from oxygen deprivation.

What he really needs is a remote with bigger buttons.
He always mutes the commercials and sometimes
he pushes the wrong one.

Have you ever been guilty of taking part in the following dialogue?

Male; "Have you seen such-and-such? I deliberately left it in such-a-place, to come back to it, and it isn't there any more."
Woman; "I put it away, dear, so that you would know where it was."

i have the opposite problem here my husband takes up all the space in my house followed by the kids
- my space seems to be the area around my computer - the space between cooker and fridge and a little corner of the bed and a tiny little cupboard for my clothes. everytime i move somthing to tidy up someone in the house complains.
- i have to control the mopney becuae if the husband had it we would have nothing left for daily basics and food the house would be covered in football stuff and console games
and we would all be living off noodles.

but at least everyone knows that if they touch my computer desk/the area surrounding it or my tablet they will lose a hand
