I am married, and both my DH and I have Facebooks. I am generally an open book, but I don't TMI or share overly personal info. Just silly stuff or about my day. DH thinks that I share too much (he doesn't share much at all) and that all I share is silly or ridiculous (random stuff about my day, etc.). In fact, if DH knew that I posted this, he'd be upset with me.
The other day, I mentioned that our new fitness item (that we'd purchased with Christmas money) had come in and that I was putting it together. We received many funny and enthusiastic comments - all positive. One person asked why I didn't make him bring it in and put it together. I replied that I am generally better at putting stuff like that together (I love tools). (Oops, yes, this could be taken wrong, but I certainly did not mean it rudely.)
DH had issues both with me mentioning the purchase in general and with my reply to the above question. He apparently does not care for people to know that he is trying to work out more and he didn't want his mom to know. (My MIL (wonderful as she is) apparently made some comments to DH about our choice of purchase before we made the deal and made it seem like I was pressuring him, when it was clearly a joint decision that we took our time to make. MIL can be very nosy when it comes to money.)
So, my question is: What is appropriate to share if I speak of DH? Should I just not mention anything about my DH in any post? Or should I have simply used some different excuse in place of the true but badly worded commment? Last, should I just not mention any purchase, even if it was wise and a positive one?
