My first wife didn't care one wait the other . Even she would be nude more time than not even after the girls were born. We raised them in the same lifestyle that I was raised in. until our divorce she became a little more conservative having to move in with her family. I continue to raise them the same way after the divorce . my last ex-wife was not very favorable but I told her this the way I am you married me this way. I was only able to get her down to bikini panties and a spaghetti strap top. While Her two daughters and son adapted very well to the lifestyle.my ex-wife was the outsider. So when you have four females and one male throwing up totally nude with Dad and Mom does nothing but complain she is pretty much outnumbered , She finally just gave up and quit complaining and griping about it. Now all of the kids are out of the house. I've been divorced from her approximately 6 and a half years, but my ex step kids as far as I'm concerned they're still mine and my girls are still practicing the lifestyle. As long as there's respect then there should be no problems
I see the issues many men have with this situation. It appears that it affects most of these men with "becoming a nudist" later in life and later in the relationship. A woman in that situation has grounds for concern, in our opinion. My wife states; "there is fear and concern that he is looking to take this nudity in a direction that she is not comfortable with (sexual - with others). A common misconception of nudism with women. Unless there is open and honest dialog between both parties, there will always be that misconception. If that's not the reason for the reluctance or hesitance, there needs to be a discussion on what the fears and concerns might be."
I've been incredibly fortunate to have expose my wife to this lifestyle between the ages of 16 and 18 and had her fully accept and participate willingly at age 20 when we married. It was her idea to raise our girls as nudists and she was sad and disappointed when they stopped in the pre teen years. She's always spoken honestly and frankly to them about many, many things and becoming women, sex, boys/men and nudism have been discussed in detail. I think I'm assuming too much that most couples and families do the same but probably not.
Even though my wife is a full fledge nudist, she has concerns as well when it comes to people that visit, family, neighbors, knocks on the door. She knows I'm not going answer the door naked. If we have visitors that are not nudists, I'll be dressed and I've taken every precaution I can to ensure our privacy and exposure to the neighbors. She still worries about these things ... but that's how she is. If she has concerns, she voices them right away, frankly and honestly. We talk about it and we come to a compromise that works for me/us and the concerns she might have.
My wife is uncomfortable with nudity in general and even topless women. The latter limits our vacation choices. She is fine with me being nude when we are home alone, but rarely me. She has even gotten to the point of commenting that it seems odd if I have clothes on when we are the only ones at home in warm weather. Since she feels that way and I didn't get interested in nudity until after we had children, our they were not raised with nudity. Now that we have only one grown son at home. she is OK with me swimming and sunning nude when he is home, and wearing just a towel in the house when he is there. She even jokingly said that I should try it more often and see if it encourages him to move out!
Before we moved to Florida I would often go nude around the house, my wife would rarely join me though. However, once we moved here, and we got a house with a private backyard and pool, she decided to join in. She loved getting in the pool without having to wear a suit, and would take that even farther and go nude in the house.
I tried to take it a step further and look at swinging, she shot that down, but did decide that she would go to a nudist resort with me. I introduced her to the website for Cypress Cove and she looked at it and decided she would try it. She loved it and the freedom to be able to go naked there. We are now members at Cypress and go at least once a month to enjoy the freedom with other people. We have also gone down to Apollo Beach and enjoyed being naked there as well.

How is that taking nudism a step further? Thats taking it a step backward and is exactly why people have such a negative view of it Good for her for shooting it down.
I am new to this lifestyle, so obviously so is my wife. Last year we went to Black Beach north of San Diego and walked around. I told her recently that I would like to go back but strip down. She agreed that would be fun and agreed to do it. I mentioned even home nudism and she says no because she hates her body. She travels for work, so I have spent time at home being a nudist. I am going to continue to go with it when she gets back home this time. If she feels safe, I think she might say, "screw it!" and join me. Safe meaning, we know our 24 yo son living with us will be at work until after we go to bed.
Fingers crossed. I want to jump into nudism with both feet, but will take baby steps with her if that is what she needs.
I am nude around home 100% indoors and outdoors when possible, weather permitting (now not so much...37 degrees this AM). My wife will rarely leave the bedroom unless clothed. She like most women has body issues, although I have tried to tell her it doesn't matter. She is totally OK with my nudity, actually telling me to get out of my clothes and get comfortable when I get home from work.I plan to purchase a hot tub soon...something we've been considering for quite some time. Maybe...just maybe...when she sees hoe much enjoyment can be had tubbing in the nude...she'll hop in without hesitation.
As I have noted before, our adult son lives home and his son from a prior relationship and his current girlfriend are here a lot, so that limits my nude time.e
My wife, while rarely nude herself, will encourage me to take everything off as soon as we are home alone. "Everything" is probably a bad term because my at home summer wardrobe when others are here is only 1 article of clothing - cotton gym shorts- no shirt, footwear or underwear.
