Myth: My wife thinks my beard makes me look like I’m a homeless man.
Fact: Often times it is the CHANGE that she objects to and she will use hyperbole to shock you into changing back by shaving. It takes time to adjust, sometimes up to a year, and in most cases, she will come around. But if you let her use these sort of tactics or withholding affection to get what she wants, you are only encouraging this type of behavior. A better approach is to discuss WHY you are growing your beard and how it feels to you, and ask for patience, understanding, and tolerance while you journey down the bearded path. Hopefully, you will not look as homeless when you slap on some great smelling Beard Oil onto your beard!
