It may just be easier to convince the freezer that you need a wife.

My best advice is to just be patient and make do without the freezer until it is the right time.

Bring up the topic from time to time and express your desire to have one so that when you DO go and buy one, 1) she will not be surprised and 2) she may very well be happy for you for getting something that you have wanted for a long time!

If you have a proper place to put the freezer, and it's free, I don't see why your wife should object to having it. Now, if it sits in the living room or you spent the mortgage money on the thing, that would be a problem.

Proper place is debatable. It would go in the kitchen for now, don't have a garage. I've mentioned using a friends house to store it, and that may work, but I'd rather have it here to monitor it. I'm thinking hold off but keep mentioning it until I just get it in here one day and fill it with three fermenters. She'll get used to it eventually, right?

Uh, space is the most important thing. Out of sight is out of mind. I ran across a guy who is building an airplane. When it got cold in the garage, he moved it to the living room. I imagine that changed the dynamic of his relationship quite a bit.

Yeah, if you're talking about the kitchen, it's tough. Especially if it's not "pretty". I hear the womenfolk seem to care about form as much as function.

Now, if you had a garage, it'd be a different story (says the man with a keezer, a fermentation fridge, and a lagering fridge in the garage -- the lagering fridge the *only* one that ever doubles as a beer/food fridge).

try this approach: tell her you're cutting her off from "happy" time until you get a freezer. and when you do it, hands on your hips, leaning forward, and stereotypical sassy voice. and then snap your fingers while you twirl around and say, "No more of this."
