He is growing it for Movember (prostate cancer awareness and fundraising).
He is quite hirsute, and judging by how much it has grown by day 8 (think Magnum PI) what will it look like by the 30th? Yosemite Sam?
I hate it. I know it is for a good cause, and I suppose I can put up with it for a month, although I may make him walk behind me when we go out.
What if he likes it, and decides to keep it? blush shock

DH hasn't heard of Movember, and I'm not going to enlighten him. He grew one once in about 1990, I wouldn't kiss him at all until he shaved it off. [bleugh]

Hahaha - you should be supportive you meany.

YANBU at all to hate it and to gently request that he shave it off at 00:01 on December 1st. Moustaches are horrible - if growing them was a pleasant experience all round then no-one would get sponsored for doing it.

You tell him that keeping it is not an option! (if he ever wants you to kiss him again!) I HATE moustaches.

Dh once shaved his Magnum PI off. It wasn't nice.

I miss my Dh's tashe sad

He also mentioned something about waxing the ends when it gets longer. I'm imagining some strange Edwardian look!

Loads of men at work grew 'tashes for Movember last year. Having to look at that amount of facial hair made it the most disturbing month of my life! Veet him in the middle of the night and then pretend you've no idea how it could possibly have disappeared.

YADNBU! Moustaches are vile...facial hair always reminds me of that illustration in 'The Twits' where there's mouldy cheese and a fish tail hiding in Mr Twit's beard! [vom emoticon].

I'm hoping my DH doesn't try growing one this year [shudder]. He had a go last year just for 'a laugh' but thank god he shaved it after a week.

Mumcentreplus Mon 08-Nov-10 18:04:16

hahaha!..tell him to try this

ICantGetMuchSleep Mon 08-Nov-10 18:05:22

Love the idea of waxing the ends though!

Mumcentreplus £12.50! shock
Not that I'd want to encourage him, but surely vaseline would suffice?

Mumcentreplus Mon 08-Nov-10 18:17:11

or Bylcreem should do the trick bout £3.50 grin

If he likes it and decides to keep it, divorce him. Moustaches are definetely grounds for divorce! wink

Mine did a moustache and beard for Movember a couple of years ago. And it stayed. Weirdly, despite me decrying facial hair in the past I found it strangely attractive. It makes him look more rugged and manly (he always looked boyishly handsome) Despite several of his friends taking the piss, I now notice several of them followed suit.

Facial hair is rather fashionable now, I notice, but it has to be both - not just a moustache, or worse, just a beard

So my advice - get him to grow a beard and imagine you are shagging a sexy Geography teacher

JamieLeeCurtis Mon 08-Nov-10 18:23:33

... my DH wouldn't have kept it if I hadn't liked it, though

littlesez Mon 08-Nov-10 18:24:17

I wnat to say YANBU. my hubby did this last year and told him to just donate the money this year himself. I think the idea is to raise awareness though so i feel very mean and like IABU as i have banned the MO

my DH has grown one with no intention of shaving it off at any point and he knows I hate it but he loves it, it's so so grim, I cringe when he kisses me. He gets the hump if I mention how much I hate it though...
its a nightmare!

JamieLeeCurtis Mon 08-Nov-10 18:25:11


My DH got more sex. I mention this as a bargaining tool .....

pottonista Mon 08-Nov-10 18:28:33

My DP grew Lemmy sideboards the year before last. SO wrong. <shudder>

nikki1978 Mon 08-Nov-10 18:31:41

DH always has facial hair - kind of a stubbly beard so he has a tache already I guess. I would not be able to look at him if he had just a tache though. Tis weird just to have hair on the upper lip (although I am doing a pretty good job of that myself grin).

RobynLou Mon 08-Nov-10 18:33:25

jamie, I'm 30 weeks pg so not really up for using sex as a bargaining tool....

Its the way it curls over his top lip and into his mouth makes me want to hurl!

Mumcentreplus Mon 08-Nov-10 18:40:15

he should really keep it in good nick..lip curling is not on!..a well groomed tashe is a sexy tashe wink

twirlymum Mon 08-Nov-10 19:18:18

I don't mind the whole stubbly face thing, it's just the moustache on it's own I don't like.
Makes me think of swingers, and 70's porn films wink

My son is 17 and all his friends at college are growing beards and moustaches too!
