My husband is a man of many hobbies, something I’ve known from our first weeks of dating. Riding motorcycles was a big one back when he was in his early 20s, and he actually used to race them. When we started dating though, he no longer had one, and I rested safely on the assumption that it was in the past.
Oh, how wrong I was! I guess it’s the kind of thing that never really goes away, and he’s been wanting one for years. When my friend Liz’s husband got a bike, I knew it was only a matter of time until Husband had one too. He asked my permission, and even though I really did NOT want him to get a bike, I knew it was inevitable. If my hubs really wants to do something, it’s going to happen, and the same can probably be said of me. SO, I relented after he promised to always ride safely and with a helmet and protective jacket. That’s marriage for ya. He got the bike back in August.
