Bathroom privacy when married...open door policy?
posted by anonymous to Human Relations (67 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
My wife of 5 years insists that I should get over myself and let her brush her teeth while I go to the bathroom. I insist that she keep the door closed while she is in there to prevent me intruding (though she doesn't see it as an intrusion, but a normal aspect of cohabitation).
While I'm rational enough to understand that everyone 'goes', I like to keep certain things private, fearing a complete lack of personal boundaries will somehow detract from intamacy elsewhere.
What's the norm here? Should I just get over it (if so, how?) or should I still try and enforce this last final boundary? How do we reach a middle ground here?
