"I think I'd have to shave it. Glad I don't have to. If she could be convinced she really does come first, maybe she'd be willing to see what it feels like after it grows out, because stubble feels very different from beard."
"Ok, here is my 2 cents...

She hasn't acused you, yet is treating you like you have been accused? Well, that's some horrid villification."
