Does Your Spouse Or Partner Agree With Your Prepping?

Lets face it, not everyone is on the same page with regards to all things. When it comes to a spouse or partner at home, certainly there are disagreements between each-other having to do with various issues and life’s activities (this is normal!).

The specific question though, “Is your spouse or partner on-board with it? (prepping)”

POLL Results:

   


 
The results of the poll are as follows:

Just about half the respondents have a spouse in agreement 80% to 100% of the time with their prepping and preparedness.

The other half of respondents are having a bit more of a challenge…

 
Particularly if your spouse or partner is below 50% with your notion (and actions) of prepping & preparedness, it no doubt leads to “issues” in that household. This probably includes some arguing to do with how your time is being spent, a specific prepping activity, or money issues.

Awhile ago I wrote an article titled, “How To Get Your Wife On-board With Prepping” which received lots of comments and indicated that this issue is likely a fairly big one…

If your spouse is a reader of books, the following novel is probably one of the best regarding scaring the living daylights out of someone (an excellent motivator 😉 ),

One Second After

 
That said, there are those who are simply not going to change (or change much). In fact, generally speaking, it’s pretty difficult if not impossible to change the mindset of an adult who is already set in their ways. The time for this is when they are young. Other than that it would likely take a major life-event with enough impact to potentially affect one’s outlook.

 
So if you’re into preparedness and your spouse or partner is not, here are a few suggestions:

1. Do it covertly.
2. Do it gradually.
3. Start small.
4. Point out current event risks & uncertainties (world/national/regional).
5. Don’t “push”. Instead gently nudge.
6. Encourage any remotely related interest or hobby.
7. Don’t get angry during related discussions.
8. Understand and adapt to those people who don’t respond to logic.
9. Encourage getting back to nature. Get outdoors. Hike. Camp. Etc..
10. Grow a vegetable garden. Most won’t object to that 😉
