I tried to give my pal a mantd with a whole gallon setup with small plant, soil and a few sticks and his wife threatened divorce if that creature was not removed from her house immediately! He's a fellow insect spreader/collector so fr him to have alive mantid he was totally excited but his wife was not gonna allow it, no ifs ands or butts...

    Well, being a woman, it might go over easier if you can get her something as well, or give her money equal to or more than your critters for her to go spend on herself. Let her go to a day spa or a get a massage or something. A lot of times when my husband buys something I get mad because of the money spent, not because of what he bought. If financial trouble is an issue, then it is a big problem. I get mad when he throws money around when we had a bill that should have been paid instead. But like I said, it might soften things a bit if you get her a present too.

    Well, you can do this one of two ways....Get rid of them (and have no spine)

    OR

    Stand up to the woman! If she says it goes or she goes, tell her to pack her bags!

    Yeah.

    Good luck with that last one.

    lol was flipping through a bug book last night while laying in bed and asked the wife if i got one that looked like a fuzzy eight legged teddy bear would that be alright? she said: "You know dang well that the only way your getting one is if you sneak it into the house without my knowing and keep it hid so dont ever see it"

    sounds like permission to get some to me i have a sorta storage place under the stairs in the utility room where my plants are. just need to put shelves in there and since my CP and frog racks are on wheels ill just wheel one in front for a door. she wont see a thing

    BTW B28 no financial worries, creepy crawlies are being financed through the sale of extra froglets from my breeding pair and a chinchilla im selling to a friend. i am perfectly aware of our financial situation. the wife is CFO of the household and i am informed of when we have extra money that i get to spend

    Depends totally on her. I once raised scorpions without spousal meltdown.

    Within the limited framework of this topic, I tend to agree. I've been appreciating a lifestyle without need of editing. But, all things considered, I'd give most anything to be permanently re-united with my Darlin'.
