When you do finally propose to her, do it in the nude. That way, later on if she tries to get you to stop being a nudist or at least makes you quit going around naked all the time, you can point to the fact that you were nude when she accepted the proposal, and she accepted you this way then.
Haha!! I have actually thought a LOT about a "naked proposal"!!
- I'm still ironing out the details of how to do it, where to do it; and where to put the ring before I bring it outlol!!!
- But I think yes; it'll be a great ice-breaker when people ask her about the proposal - she has already told her close friends that she's gone nude at Club O.
- And I know she won't have any issues with a "naked proposal; as long as it's romantic and well-planned! And it'll serve as a good reminder too!!
If you decide to do it, and actually go through with it, be sure to let us know how it went. That is, if you don't mind.I most definitely don't mind! To be continued...
That's funny...I'd totally forgot about that last post and missed update...from 3 years ago.
Well...I didn't get to do a naked proposal because she'd brought up the fact that she wanted a more "traditional" proposal - that she could then tell her friends and family about. And I didn't want to "deprive her" of that.
But we did still include nudity in the event. After the actual proposal and then dinner, we went home, stripped naked and spent the rest of the night dancing naked and celebrating our engagement in "Adam and Eve" fashion.
Well since then we have gotten married, been to the nudist resort; and she has embraced social nudity there. It didn't take her long at all to get comfortable with resort nudism. As a matter of fact we are going to TLR for a couple of days here soon; and she is actually looking forward to it,
There is some value in necroposting since it can get other posters to chime in or give updates; such as I just did!
. . . . We went in August and they made us take the initial tour fully nude. . . . .
That is quite unusual. Most resorts I have been to allow new visitors to tour in as many clothes as they want and to lose them as they feel comfortable.
convince or persuade? you ask, if she says 'no'. thats it. if she says 'yes', then job done. if you have to convince or persuade...dont.
I'm going to respectfully disagree here. I've been married twice; and both wives initially said "No way!" to nudism. Had I given up after the first "no" I would have never gotten to where I am today.
I did manage to "convince" the both of them; not so much of getting naked "publicly", but of opening their minds. Whether they got naked or not was always up to them. Yes it took some time, patience and understanding; but they both ended up full-fledged social nudists.
Sometimes "no means no...forever." But sometimes it just means "no just right now." It's up both spouses to then decide if the conversation is worth pursuing.

I agree completely with Nudony. Though it took little to no persuading for my wife to live as nudists, it took a little convincing for her to open her mind to social nudism. Her only regret was not being convinced sooner.
How to do this is different for each and every couple. You know your wife best but what worked for us and what I've advised others in your situation was open and honest communication between both of you. If she's willing to open up about her fears, concerns, misconceptions or misunderstandings of nudism, maybe you'll be able to find some common ground where she'd be willing to at least try it at home.
Nudism starts at home. Don't start by jumping into the idea that visiting a nude beach, club or resort is at the top of the priority list. If someone isn't comfortable being naked at home, that's where you begin.
I agree with Andydi, If your wife is not willing to be nude at home which mine is not except maybe dressing or bathing, she certainly won't be seen anywhere else naked! I know for a fact that my wife will never be nude outside the home nor would she participate with me doing so, and it's ok with me. Being a retired RN and former Army Field Medic, she has often stated" I have seen all the naked people I need to see for a lifetime" I love her, married for 30+ years now and I have realized for some time now, I will never change her opinion about nudism so I don't bother her with it . Not that I have not tried in the past several times! Enjoy your marriage, it's not the end of the world.
