There are an awful lot of comments on the internet by ladies who would like to have a no-shoes house, but have an husband who refuses to remove his shoes. I can only recall one comment by a man whose partner was reluctant to comply with a shoes-off policy.
Husbands, can you not see any benefit in having a clean home? If you have to get your carpet cleaned or replaced it will cost you money.
Why be bossed about by your wife? Why not take the initiative and introduce a shoes-off policy in the home yourself. Take some leadership in the household. If you read this blog, you will find plenty of reasons for not wearing shoes at home.
You cannot think that there is anything manly about being worried about getting cold feet?
