I'm screwed. I guess I'll be using the ole Supertuck, once I actually get it, for those soccer games and park activities.
Oh well, Winter is right around the corner anyways. I guess I'll just grin and bare it till next spring. Maybe she'll change her mind by then if we're still together.
I suppose your marriage and family are none of my business, but would you really consider ending what I presume is an otherwise good marriage/relationship over a disagreement over HOW (not even whether, but just HOW) you carry a gun in certain locations?!??!!? If so, may I humbly suggest you rethink your priorities?
I carry to protect myself, but mostly to protect my children and wife. Not much need to protect the wife if I upset her to the point that she won't live with me.
NO two, mature, thinking, independent adults are going to agree with each other 100% of the time. I don't even agree with myself 100% of the time.
So she wants you to be a bit discreet in the home town, at the kids' soccer game, with all their other parents around? BFD! You never ask her to do something just a little different than she might prefer?
Put this into perspective and remember that the key is to carry and otherwise be prepared, not HOW you carry.
So carry concealed in those locations she prefer you carry concealed. OC or casually conceal in other locations. And if this is the biggest disagreement you two have--politically/socially or otherwise--buy her a dozen roses, take her out to dinner, and count your lucky stars.
