    I dont get it.

    I never criticized my wife for eating peanuts. I questioned the food choice from a health perspective in a polite, low-tone manner. I dont think I need to get into details in order to clarify this, but there is a very important distinction between criticism and discussion.

    You are far too sensitive.
    I think your'e partially right, though its not the forum, its YOU. From the outset you have been namecalling while others have been helpful; 'annoying', 'sensitive', take your pick.

    THAT is what I would call a criticism. Please don't threaten me with violence!

    In haste to respond to the violence line, I forgot the most important part!

    We all do it, but dismissing it as no big deal is wrong, as for some it is.
    Our doctor actually told us that peanuts, in my wifes case with her unknown allergies, are potentially more harmful to our baby than (say) a coke a day.

    I apologize for dismissing food sacrifice as "no big deal", but as you say I do think everyone is different. As I have said I have given up my favorite foods as a sign of solidarity with my wife, and have never nor would ever think of complaining about it. For me it is a very small thing, and she is, as you correctly say, going thru much more than just the sacrifice of her favorite food.

    Having said that, there are others on this forum and thread who also think of it as no big deal. Most importantly, my wife thinks it no big deal. She just happened to be in a crappy mood on Sunday night.
