Clothes on the large part play a functional role in my life and I wear them as a necessity against the elements and for the upholding of morality. Since we are one with my wife I have no problem with her policing what I wear. Because it doesn’t only reflect on me but on her as well.

As a married man it does not look good on my wife if I leave the house to go to work with a dirty or shirt that is not ironed. Though I have no problem with clothes that are not ironed, I think ironing is overrated, my wife will not have it. So I never leave the house with clothes that are not ironed.

How my wife dresses is something I considered when I asked her out. If she dressed in a certain way I wouldn’t have even approached her because I know its something you would not be able to change later on. I wouldn’t want to change her anyway. It was just best for me to stay away.

Many relationships have faultered because you meet someone who dresses in a certain way and then when you married you want to start to police how they dress. I do not think that is fair.

Before my wife goes out she regularly asks me how she looks. She is not into risqué fashion so she often asks me something is too much, too short, too tight, too sheer etc. We both subscribe to the idea of modest dress as prescribed boy the bible so the does it out of her own fear of the Lord. If my trousers are sagging to expose undergarments she always lets me know.

We represent each other when we go out and any policing of our clothing is out of a place of love and dignity for each other. If I have to get to a point where I have to overly police what my wife wears or vice versa, how dress would not be the problem, it would just be a symptom. There would be something much bigger and more serious beneath the surface whose will need to be addressed.
