I know this says military wives but do you have to be sexist? There are military husbands and I am one of them. Can I play to? I haven't

I think there are probably definitely fewer males in our position than there are females, but it's just because there are more males in the military than females.

I'm totally cool with you and any other Husband joining in here. I've thought for awhile the board should be Military Spouses in the interest of Being PC. Just because dependent hubs are less common, doesn't mean they don't exist and even base services are mainly geared for women, I get it... but still.

Most military husbands I know are in a dual active marriage and I don't think they'd seek out a group like this, which is FTR..their loss.

I agree with Jess and Dedi. Honestly, I'd love to have a male perspective around here sometimes. :) It would be a nice change from time to time. Out of all the spouses I know, only one is a man. I hope you'll stick around and post with us.

As far as the title of the board, that's an iVillage thing and I think it's because the site itself is geared towards women instead of men.

I've known a few military spouses who happen to be men in my time. So, feel free to join us.

I get the feeling that you would rather this be an all female group. For those that wouldnt mind a male joining the group like dedi thanks I do appriciate the warm welcome. As for the tmi discussions, im sure its nothing being married for 14 yrs I havent heard

There's no reason you can't come post with us... no reason to attack either and feel like this is an "all female group," althought Ivillage in general is more geared towards women in general (IMO).... but no really, there is no reason you should feel left out and like you can't post with us! Have at it!

I wasn't at all suggesting that I think this should be an all female group.
