    Should married people have a curfew? IJN Jas

    I was watching a show and this man was upset because his wife locked him out of the house because he came home around 1 o'clock in the morning and does not agree with having a curfew. I was taught Early to bed, Early to rise. What do you think?

    No, I am not my husband's mother and he isn't mine, either.  If I know he's going out for drinks after hockey or something then I know he's going to be in late and vice versa.  If he's having fun with his friends then I'm not interested in telling him he has to be home by a certain time to basically just sleep next to me, and I would expect the same courtesy from him. 

    Just because we're married doesn't mean we're not individuals and doing things separately sometimes is healthy.  As long as he tells me he's going to be late so that I'm not worrying then I don't mind.

    I think it depends on what is comfortable between the two people. Would I ever give my husband a curfew? No, he's a grown man. However if he consistently stayed out until 2 or 3 in the morning and it bothered me I would have to have a conversation with him.
    So no I don't think adults should be given curfews. I just think adults in a relationship should respect their partner's needs.

    To let your spouse know when you'll be home is a sign of respect.
    Constantly staying out late without letting them know where you are going and doing is a sign of disrespect AND can be a sign of someone sexually cheating on you.
    Having a curfew may be necessary, but not letting your partner know where you are and who you are with is appropriate.

    Maybe not a curfew but to show some respect.  I have a 75 mile commute and if I am not home by a certain time, my husband does worry because of the drive, working night shift, roads being dangerous when it snows, I call him if I am running late or if I am going to work overtime or if I am going to stop at the gym  And he does the same thing so if I am starting dinner, I can wait a little if I know if he is going to be late.  If it got into the habit of staying out to 2 in the morning, however, constantly, I can understand why a curfew needs to be set up
