I am not saying that I agree with it or that I think it's okay. All I'm saying is that if you have apples at home, sometimes a mango can be tempting. One would hope a strong enough relationship would prevail, but not all relationships are that strong.
I also agree. I don't see anything wrong with wearing sweats and ponytails around the house, but I do think men appreciate a bit more effort at other times. Do I think that's the way things SHOULD be? No. But I think that's how they are.

My husband PREFERS me without makeup. He can't stand the way it feels, smells or gets on him when we kiss, and frankly neither can I. I don't wear makeup...never really have. That's how he fell for me and that's how I'll stay.

Add me to the list of people who have never been big make up wearers. I also have no idea how to do anything to my hair except straighten it and put it in a pony tail. I prefer pajama pants around the house to jeans. My boyfriend doesn't mind. I do, however, like to dress up for him sometimes. I think its nice when we both put a little something extra into our appearance, even if its just on special occasions. I don't think not wanting to get all dressed up with a ton of make up on is cause for a divorce though.

Also, in response to the title, I'd be pretty upset if a "bare face" directly caused a divorce. However, if I had a bear face, I give my future husband full permission to leave me. Not sure why I would someday wake up with a bear face, but you never know.

I think it's more likely that such marriages fail because they were based solely on physical appearance. If you want a marriage like that to last, better hope the wife's still hot in her 80's.

Not good men.

Well if a man or woman divorces their spouse because their spouse "let themselves go," the thing really being let go is commitment and the one doing it is the man or woman that initiated the divorce.

It's till death parts us. It isn't until your lack of lipstick or too much gray hair or baldness parts us.

There is a wide margin between "letting one's self go" and "not dressing to the 9s every day". That's my first disclaimer.

Next, my hubby does not like it when I wear the "mom shorts/pants" around the house. I don't like it when he wears his LSU gear every stinkin day. Get over it, already.

Finally, as a conservative, Christian, I am sick and tired of Pat Robertson reinforcing some of this antiquated, outdated garbage that I feel is intended to "keep women in their place".

I've brought a lot of things to the marriage, besides how I look. I'm aging, so is DH. We still have lots in common and enjoy each others company. 26 years strong, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've put on makeup during the year. This includes from the first year we met, until the past year. We're casual and it works for us.

I agree with this.

I work from home so the majority of the time I am that woman in sweats with no make-up. My husband has never complained or said a word and our marriage is good but I have no doubt that he loves to see me dressed up and with make-up. I feel the same way about him. It's nice to see each other looking our best.

So while I don't think a lack of effort should end a marriage, it certainly can't hurt one to make an effort.

When a spouse - either one - REALLY lets themselves go, it often extends well beyond a declining appearance. The lack of effort in keeping up appearance can be much easier to tolerate than lack of effort elsewhere.

Do I *LIKE* seeing my DW "dressed to the 9's"? Sure.
Do I *NEED* to see my DW dressed up to stay married to her? Absolutely not.

Yup me too. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary and I believe I wore make up to dinner. I *did* start to wear some tinted moisturizer for a while but even that was too much of a PITB for me, especially when I would rub my eye and suddenly start to tear up.

Thanks everyone. It's a relief that there are sane people on the DIS! I wasn't going to actually identify the speaker as I didn't want to send this thread in the wrong direction. . Honestly. I was just so surprised to see o many responders were agreeing with his theory I just had to see if I was crazy or not, lol!

I don't agree with him @ all and I am also a Christian.

I do not waer very much makeup in a regular basis (it annoys me and is time consuming ) I do enjoy looking nice. But that's for myself. It makes me feel good. I am glad my DH accepts me for me!
