Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

That is funny, bc, according to several sources, he wasn't married.

Color me odd, but I'll tell my wife "maybe the other dress" or if I didn't care for dinner.  Better than eating the same dinner every week for the rest of my life pretending to like it!

It makes total sense. In fact, my wife encourages me to to tell her if I didn't like something because as she says (as you do), "it's better than me making it over and over again if you don't like it." Even still it's hard for me to say "I didn't like it." To me its a touchy situation. Thankfully it's only happened once :P (and even then I used the below advice:)

But I think you're right. Don't ever say something negative, always suggest a better alternative like "I think I like the other dress better" or "this chicken is good, but I think I liked the chicken you made last week a tad better."

Sorry to be cliche, but I've found "a happy wife is a happy life" more true than not :P

Or you could say " I love it but please never make it again"

It does not matter how blunt she wants you to be.  If you say that you don't like something or that she doesn't look good in something then she will be insulted.
