Do your husbands take you dancing?

I met my husband on the dance floor 15 years ago. It used to be one of my favorite things to do. I am wondering if other couples go out dancing? My husband refuses and always has. I think its very unfair of him considering how we met. He acts as though the world will end if we do this. Ridiculous right? He says he would like me to show him one husband who is willing to take their girl out dancing. So now I'm curious too. Is he right? Is it just plain unacceptable at our ages 36 and 40. Should I suck it up and accept the fact my dancing days are over?

Honey you're dancing days are far from over lol. One of my best friends is 41 and is on the dance floor as soon as she's in the door. I myself love to husband on the other hand not so much but will if I beg long enough. So we have found middle ground. If we go out we go out with a large group of friends and I can spend all night on the dance floor with my friends and he can sit back and watch whatever game is on. Every once in a while I'll turn around and he's right there beside me dancing so it's just a man thing lol. Try to find middle ground.

My hubby doesn't take me dancing because he hates clubs but he takes me out other places. I go out dancing with my mates because it would not be the same if I forced my hubby to go with me.

My BIL and SIL on the other hand go out dancing together because they love it (my BIL is 30 and my SIL is 35) so age does not mean anything if you enjoy it do it.

After being married for 20 years we decided it was about time we made nights for each other as we never went out together without the kids. My older kids are 18 and 16 and my daughter is 20 months so I have babysitters on tap! Recently we have been going to Boogie Nites which is a traveling road show disco. It comes to a venue in our town every 6 weeks and we always go. The music is 70's, 80's and 90's so there is something for everyone. I think because you have to pay for a ticket that everybody that attends wants to dance and are our age group. I really look forward to it as it is something different gives me a reason to dress up and act like a teenager again. We dance for four hours solid and love every minute of it.

Nope, and thank God because I can not dance for the life of me. BUT if it's something you really want to do I can't see why it should be 'unacceptable'. Perhaps though he is not much unlike me and is just to worried that he will make of fool of himself. Perhaps you may propose some dancing lessons? If he still refuses perhaps just dancing lessons for yourself, that way you can still do something you enjoy. I know it won't be as nice if he isn't there but perhaps if he sees how much you enjoy it and how much it means to you he may slowly start to join in. Good luck. x

Hi Shannon, my partner doesn't take me anywhere let alone dancing lol, he is 31 and I am 27 and since having our son we haven't been anywhere or done anything, so don't take it to heart.
