Nah, if you read my post carefully enough, we don't treat each other as children needing to seek each others approval for everything. I treat her like an adult, she treats me the same.
When I told my wife of my decision to work with bees, I had already taken considerations into account for children, space, allergies, etc... her only question was, "when do we start?".
Even though bugs creep her out, she has been very interested in active in bottling and wax working and helping me prepare for presentations, etc...
