I posted a month or two ago about some problems that my husband and I were having in our marriage - mainly loss of intimacy and romance after our youngest two kids were born. It got a lot better recently with him spending more time with the kids, making more time for us as a couple, and just making more of an effort overall.
I was very happy about that - and then it got weird.
Over the years he has cared less and less about his appearance, growing out his beard, not working out, choosing work over family commitments. He is also notoriously cheap. His family makes fun of him for being so "thrifty." I have always just considered him to be smart with his money and ours as a household. He started a business just before the recession and was one of the few that actually grew exponentially during the past 7 years. He is now getting ready to sell it for a large profit. He has also chosen to go back to school, receiving his masters degree and is working towards gaining admission into a doctoral program to realize his dream of becoming a full time college professor.
After that long back story, some things about his behavior have changed very rapidly making him into a man that I have not known before. He grew out his hair and got it professionally cut (in a salon, not a barber)
