This seems like a nice script for a drama - come on Sam, please entertain us with a Yetiblog.

I think it's imperative that both the partners should give space to each other but then should know the extent?? Can't disappear for like weeks (or more) together on some unsafe trip???

I think this thread has been going waay OT from the begining. According to what Sidz says here, the only reason the wife is opposed to the trek is safety not because she's gonna be alone or he's gonna have too much fun or he might cheat on him.

If this is the case, then even Sidz needs to worry about his own safety and take steps to improve that. (GPS, sat-phone, helmets etc)

Sam sir brilliant thoughts as usual.
I am going through a very stressful period with regards to getting married.
My parents are hell bent on getting me married saying you are getting old.
The trouble is I don't want to go through arranged marriage.
But they don't seem to understand that.

I am assuming you want to go through marriage, but not arranged marriage.

This argument is valid only if you have an alternate way of getting married.
why don't you tell them if you have.

hey guys!
I have been in a relation since 10yrs & just gor married recently to the love of my life.i was a bug before wedding.could spend hours together at garage,riding or driving & my wife(gf den) was ok with it.
now when i am married I UNDERSTAND she is here for me leaving all that she has lived with for past 25yrs.now the problem was that i wanted to move with both my passion & relation.the only solution was can i make her go through the same experience i am goin through.though it was a challenge things worked for me.the only problem i faced is i always useed to get excited(over excited)which she din like so i left the over excitement for her & stuck to excitement in my life & here i am HAPPY living top of the world

This is seriously off topic.

Get married but continue looking.

If my wife reads this, I will be like this dead horse only she will not let me die.

Hey bblost, my wife and I don't have a problem with looking. JUST looking, mind you! Thus far and no further...

Guys,
I am new to this discussion, but let me tell you there has been no girlfriend of mine to support the outing, leave alone joining me.
I dont know what is wrong. It could be that they dont want to go out with a guy that they are not married to or they are scared or it could be there parents (but there were some living alone).
All the time i have been asking them to join me but nopes, all i could get is a NO.

You know what I think?

I think this is a very sexist thread. And a bit insensitive considering that Team-BHP now has many active female members.
We should learn to talk a little differently.

I hope everyone's wives and girlfriends read these comments you have made.
