Ask Amy: Spouse doesn’t want to whine about wine

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I am married to a wonderful, kind, and generous man.

We have a very good marriage. We've never had a real argument or nagged each other about anything.

I am worried about his weight, however.

He had lost a lot of weight, but now he's regaining it.

This is because he has a glass of wine just before bed.

I don't mind his daily glass of wine, but I wish he'd have it at dinnertime so that his body has time to process it.


I know he enjoys his bedtime snack, so I'm loath to bring it up.

How do I gently and kindly ask him to forego it at bedtime without sounding like a nag?

– Worried

Dear Worried: If your husband’s nightly glass of wine makes him surly or uncommunicative, or interferes with his sleep, your shared intimacy or sex life, then you get to bring it up.
