My wife just called me and asked me what I thought about her donating her hair to cancer patients (several inches worth). I love the idea in theory. It's very generous, given it typically costs $1,000 plus with no help from insurance for cancer patients to get real wigs. This could make some unfortunate soul very happy. However, I love my wife's hair. I've never liked short hair on women. Her long hair is one of the sexiest things about her. So I ended up telling her that I really wished she wouldn't. She said she wouldn't and that was apparently that. However, I now feel like an absolute jackass because this gift she was willing to give would have made some poor cancer patient very happy. Should I reconsider? Should I tell her to do it? It's not like I wouldn't be attracted to her anymore, but her hair is one of the things I love the most about her appearance. If anyone would like to give some advice or tell me I'm not a jerk for caring about her hair, or maybe even confirm that I have every right to feel ashamed of myself, go for it. Please help. What should I do?
Get over it, my man. Hair grows back, brother.
My wife donates at least 10 inches about every 14 months.

Gotta let her do it dude. I always try to look at it like what if it was my wife that needed the hair donation? Like Heater said, the hair will grow back!
I'm with Heater. It isn't like she is going to shave her head. It seems like a really nice gesture that would help someone in need. It is pretty selfish on your end to ask that she doesn't do it if she wants to. Worst case, maybe she can grow it out a few more months and then cut it so it won't be as short afterwards.
Edit: Read your OP again. You know what the right thing to do is. You even worded it in a way that shows it. Best of luck in making your decision. It seems like a no-brainer to me. Hopefully you just needed some encouragement from everyone on here.

Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
I can understand why you're torn, trust me I do not like women with short hair. I feel like my initial shock would be against it, but as I spent more time thinking about it and after talking it out with her I would realize that it is ultimately her decision. And I'd let her know I support her either way (although she may not look the best without it)
what are you, Amish?
I donate 10 inches to my wife every 14 hours. I'm sorry, was that inappropriate in a cancer donation thread? I couldn't resist.
Well, the responses here are pretty unanimous. Thanks guys for confirming what my gut was telling me. I'll give her my full support to do what she wants regarding this subject. Thanks for the input.
Nicely done, but how do you recover quickly enough to go 2X in 14 hours?
Turn negatives into positives: it will be like sleeping with a new woman. I recommend you meet her at a bar and play "stranger".

Hahahahaha... Well played, sir.
You better make sure she does it now
You married her not her hair. What would you do if for some reason she "just a scenario" got a medical issue and needed a wig for a little while just to make you happy. Dude, in 20 years of marriage this kinda of stuff means a whole lot less than the massive "appreciation sex" you will probably get for being supportive.....just sayin'
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
