Just go out and buy it. lol That's what I did when my boyfriend was afraid of snakes. Tell him you're doing something for yourself and he doesn't have to touch it or care for it.

Maybe this is why I'm single now! lmao

It's easier to beg for forgivness then it is to ask for permision.

I second all of those. Just do it. I hate to have to "ask" for permission like I'm a little kid. If I want to do something and I'm going to pay for it & otherwise be the responsible party, and its not going to negatively impact another person in my family, then I don't ask. I just do it. My family members can choose whether they want to be involved, or take an interest, or not.

You need to stress the fact that you will accept FULL responsibiltiy for the snake. If it's a simple matter of him being scared of a corn snake, then educate him about the snake. Either that or laugh at him and call him a big sissy.

Or you could just go out and get one. It's not like he can break up with you.

I would buy him a large tube of KY and tell him to go grease his monkey. Funny how fast he will give in.
