My fiance is very supportive of my collecting. I occasionally get the you have to cut down stuff or we have no space thing, but she really doesn't care. She goes with me to the stores and even look for the figures with me. She even checks them to make sure they have good paint jobs and sometimes she even buy them. Plus she knew I collected figures before we got in our relationship.

I'm 25 and my fiancee and I'll will be married june 6th. But we own our home and have leaved together for 2yrs so she knows all about my joes. She is super supportive though, she said its better for me to hunt joes then be out at a bar or something doin something bad. she even calls me everytime she goes to target or walmart to read to me what all figures they have in stock. She's the best.

I just put it to my Girl like this.. she has an addiction to shinny jewelry.. I told her these are my Shinny Toys.. You like wearing yours.. I like displaying mine. Besides she knows there are far worse things I could be addicted to and have in the past.. I've been clean and sober for 8 years now.. I think I get to buy toys without guilt... as for the check out girls they usually are pretty cool about it with me.. sometimes they ask if I collect or just put them on ebay.. I always say I'm a collector.

My wife is alright with the joe thing. She is tough on the space thing and if i leave them out anywhere I have two kids, my son is 2 1/2 and daughter is 11 months today. I get in trouble staying up late to play. Other than that I have to say when we were dating the first time she came over to my place she saw my joe wall with over 150 twelve inch joes she knew from the start.

My wife could do without the Joe's. She doesn't get it and she doesn't like me spending a lot of money on it. She is always getting on my case because of space which at this point it's hard to blame her. She tolerates it though. She has bought me all kinds of GI Joe/Army toys for Christmas this year despite the fact that she knows it will take up space.
We rent a small house and I have my 3 1/2 year old son's room filled up and most of the living room filled up with Joe toys. Thatís when we are playing. When we are done playing I try to push it all into the corner of the living room so itís a little out of the way. Even I am getting worried and stressed because I am running out of room and I know there is a lot more Joe toys still to come. WHERE AM I GOING TO PUT IT ALL????

A lot of people hon this thread have mentioned being embarrassed either in front of the wife's friends or at the checkouts. Check that S@#$. You have nothing to be embarrassed about people.
Joe's are our Heroes, and everybody has those whether they want to believe that or not.
Do you care more about what you think, or about what other people think?
Be yourselves, and don't ever be embarrassed about that.

Yeah, my wife's so supportive, last night she was on the verge of pestering me to order ARAH-style figure stands. Probably because I'm always complaining that they don't stand well on their own. We just ordered a bunch of fodder figures, she wants to start doing customs with me, and I got her a Zarana w/ earrings, (very nice shape, complete, a steal for $4 shipped. I love EBay) now she wants all the original Dreadnoks. A lucky man am I.

Im glad this thread took off, Im glad im not the only one. If the wife knew how much I paid for the two Target Battle Packs, she would have divorced me. My band (myspace.com/shadowbreedband) and my toys, thats what makes me happy, so leave it be. By the way, if you check out my myspace, all the songs on the upcoming release are Star Wars based. GI Joe will be next time lol.
