Honeymoon, Husband

I would be horribly remiss if after all these honeymoon posts I did not share a picture of Dave (almost) clean-shaven.  Dave and I have known each other for some ten plus years.  We were friends in college and kept in touch over the years, only to start dating in 2006.  I have always known him to have facial hair.  He says that a goatee makes him look “older” and “well distinguished”.  And although Dave swears that he was clean-shaven for a short period of time in college, I don’t remember what he looked like back then.

I wanted him to shave.

As the story goes, he promised to shave for our wedding if I watched every single episode of Star Wars.  As you can see from the previous wedding post, I did not complete this task.  Actually this epic quest for a clean-shaven groom came to an end right as the Episode 4 original VHS tape came to an end.

I married him anyway.  He married me anyway!  And he shaved for the honeymoon…and only the honeymoon.

Surely I can get enough support from the new readers of this blog to convince Dave to do it one more time?

  • Let his hair get a couple inches longer, and he’ll look like the little boy I grew up with. 🙂 (Hm, maybe that’s not the best thing to say to get him to stay clean-shaven?) Personally, I like the beard. I agree that it makes him look older and more sophisticated. However, you are the one who has to kiss him, so you get veto power.

  • I have to agree that the goatee does make Dave look older and more distinguished.

    Joe was clean shaven all the way through college and for our wedding, and it was only at his suggestion and my eager prompting that he was encouraged to grow his own goatee. He hasn’t looked back, and neither have I.

    But, Jen’s right. You’re the one that ultimately has to have the whiskers tickle you, so you definitely have the last say. =)

  • I also think the goatee looks better. I thought maybe you asked him to shave it cause the whiskers were tickling you.

    I’m not sure what it’s like to kiss someone with whiskers, (Jimmie has to shave cause it’s required for his job.), but I do know that the in between stage from clean to whiskers is like sand paper. Ouch!
