Marmite and marriage! (Lighthearted)

DH and I have been married for 17years, through all this time he has known there is a line that you do not cross, the marmite line, on one side is me the hater, the other is him the lover, I am quite happy for him to indulge in his vile habit and there is space in the cupboard for him to store the various jars he collects, I believe I am showing a level of tolerance that is above and beyond what most women would endure.

He knows that if he wants to indulge and spread the sludge on his bread he can but he must keep it away from me and anything that I cherish and hold dear.

The bastard has introduced MY dog to it and the bitch likes it. I don't know who has betrayed me more, him for crossing the line or her for siding with him on the love it/hate it argument

I can't believe he would risk 17 years of marriage for this.

AIBU or should I LTB

Anyone who hates Marmite is not normal, seriously, you need some therapy to get over your aversion. Your dog is merely showing what is right and normal.

I don't know anything about dogs, but marmite is VERY salty - would it be dangerous for a dog to eat it for that reason?

I love it. Dp hates it. I taunt him with twiglets. grin

It was just the tip of his finger she licked it off, so not a lot.
I think he's trying to steal her away from me, he's just been training her with steak, how am i meant to compete.

Oh I love Marmite YABVVVU shock


WarmFuzzyFun Sun 20-Jan-13 19:25:10

I am surprised you even have to ask?

Binkyridesagain Sun 20-Jan-13 19:26:19

There HAS to be someone who agrees me, I will not accept I am not normal!

thesnowmanrocks Sun 20-Jan-13 19:27:37

Marmite on toast anyone? Mmmm grin

MiddleAgeMiddleEngland Sun 20-Jan-13 19:28:38

Your DH is being VVVU. Nobody should waste such a precious substance on a dog grin

LTB. I used to love marmite but it makes me very ill within minutes of eating it so no I sm on your side here. Evil brown ooze.

thesnowmanrocks Sun 20-Jan-13 19:29:41

I know alot of people dislike it. Thought i was a minority!

The proudest moment of my life was converting a hater! My ex was adamant that he didnt like it, turns out he tried it once as a child and never again. So when he pinched my toast and it had Marmite on I was waiting to see his disgust, except he said "whats on this?" "Marmite" says I, with a smirk. "Mmm, its not that bad actually, is there any more?"

You're right about marmite, it IS gopping. However you should bear in mind that dogs have no discernment whatsoever, they eat everything and love everyone.

Binkyridesagain Sun 20-Jan-13 19:30:35

It is precious, it was the gold marmite. Well marmite with rust that's pretending to be gold.

elfycat Sun 20-Jan-13 19:30:52

my cats love marmite (catch them trying to finish off what the kids leave).

My DDs (2 and 4) ask for marmite on a spoon.

YABU, your DH is being normal on the marmite spectrum.

Bogeyface Sun 20-Jan-13 19:31:15

Dont has a point. Dogs eat sick dont they?

Binkyridesagain Sun 20-Jan-13 19:33:56

My dog likes bird shit and now marmite, she doesn't have very refined taste buds does she ?

wellwhatdoyaknow Sun 20-Jan-13 19:58:35

Marmite on toast is my favourite, in fact I think I may have some in a minute! My daughter likes Marmite on toast but my son won't try it. smile

Bogeyface Sun 20-Jan-13 20:00:25

Anyone else like marmite sandwiches? My parents like Marmite on toast but both boak at the idea of Marmite sarnies! White bread, real butter, thick layer of the brown stuff, lovely!

Binkyridesagain Sun 20-Jan-13 20:02:17

Bogey, I can't believe I'm saying this, try your butty with cress.
