To Shave or Not to Shave

I've heard people say that they think my life is like a fairytale. I'm going to be real with you. It's not. Because in all the Cinderella movies I saw, Prince Charming never had stubble.





Angel never really has a beard. And he rarely has a clean-shaven face, either. The truth is, I married a man who doesn't like to shave at any time of the year. I'm not sure why or even if he has a reason--Angel just isn't fond of shaving and doesn't seen any reason why he should shave every day.

As the one who kisses him, I can most certainly think of reasons why having a husband with a clean-shaven face every day would be nice, but oh well. I've never been a fan of beards or the scruffy look--I like the old movies where you see the likes of Gregory Peck and Jimmy Stewart shaving before dinner so that they looked presentable. I appreciate it when Angel shaves, but I do not retaliate by saying that I don't like shaving either so I won't do it. That just doesn't seem like a helpful thing to do, and besides, I want to be able to look at my own legs!

I've gotten used to this habit of my husband's, and I accept that my Angel and his 5 o'clock, or two day, or one week shadow will always be a part of my life. I think he usually shaves once every week or two, and I can talk him into doing it when we're getting pictures taken. Otherwise, I just kiss him a lot on the one day that he's not prickly.

Do your men shave?

  1. I like the scruffy look, but it doesn't feel well on the face! I just sort of let my husband do whatever he feels at the time (unless I have a strong opinion about it) because I have such a hard time making decisions... ha ha. Well, I say that I like the smooth feel, but the rough and manly look from the scruff pretty much outweighs the scratches on my face...LOL

  2. Hi there! New follower from the MNB Blog Hop! The stubble isn't so bad, but it is no shave november, so he should get cut some slack lol. Looking forward to getting to know you better through your blog!

  3. Those first few days of not shaving are the worst but after my husband gets his beard grown in a little more I like it...he looks older too which is good since we both look no older than 12.

  6. I don't think I've *ever* seen my husband without facial hair...it's not quite a beard, but it's definitely longer than Angel's! I don't mind the chin stuff...but I hate it when he lets his "mustache" grow in because that crap HURTS!!!

  10. My husband doesn't like to shave. His neck always breaks out when he does, so now he only shaves for the dentist, which I don't understand. When he does shave, I'm always surprised by how much a baby face he has. I like him with facial hair but it's SO scratchy.

  12. I love a little 5 o'clock shadow!

    Sebastian and I just had our engagement photos taken recently, and we tested out different days that he would go without shaving so we'd get the right amount of stubble for our photos. Hahahaha. I think it was about 2.5 days and it was perfect :)

  13. I cannot stand it if my man doesn't shave. Two days max is all he gets or I turn mean! I do reward with lots of kisses but he knows he's not getting any if he's got stubble!;)

  16. The issue with shaving is that a detailed concentration has to go into it all the time. It requires precision and fine cutting techniques and performing this everyday does get a little burdensome. It's about the quality of shaving verses the quantity in a women's legs.

  17. I love my husband's beard, especially when it gets really long, I love the artsy look :) I do like him to keep it trimmed up around the edges, the wild mountain man look only works for me for so long!

  18. haha, you'd think he'd get the hint and shave more if you kiss him more on those days. ;) mo's hair isn't TOO prickly, but he does tend to have stubble most of the time (doesn't care for shaving either). When he DOES, I love the way his face feels and smells from his aftershave so I probably kiss him more those days too.

  19. Rachel! I just saw this post, and had to laugh cause I wrote one similar about my husband's facial hair back in September of 2013! http://swagonmomma.blogspot.com/2013/09/men-with-facial-hair-handsome-or.htmlI I agree with Veronica, I like facial hair on my husband, cause it makes him look his age, instead of this baby head on an adult body. Ha. As for me, I very much hate shaving my legs, but I still do once or twice a week. In the winter, it's... less...haha. I wear long socks and boots a lot. :) But I shave my armpits almost everyday...armpit hair gives me the heebiejeebies.
