Dear Massi, My husband won’t let me eat from the same fork he has used or won’t drink from the same glass I have used. 

He says it is not ‘paak’ to share utensils.

It makes me feel really dirty and secondary. 

I don’t get it. 

If he is okay with me doing other things with him, how comes this is not paak enough for him?

Massi Says, What you deem to be double standards may just be a personal preference, or something your husband has been taught when he was younger. 

There may be a cultural influence to your husband’s level of personal hygiene.

Rather than taking this personally, or as a negative trait, focus on the more positive aspects of your relationship.
