Slacker and Steve - GMD: Vacation Clothes (Audio)

April 20, 2017

Today’s Great Mate Debate is from James and Rachel and they need your help. They’ve have been dating for 2 years and are getting ready to go on vacation to the Bahamas in 3 weeks. They are going to meet another couple that they are friends with, Ian and Sarah. Rachel bought some outfits and swimsuits for the vacation and recently showed her purchases to James. He thinks the things she bought are way too scandalous and show too much skin, especially to be wearing in front of their friends and other people. He wants to relax on vacation and not have to fend off other guys the whole time, so he wants her to return the things she bought and get stuff that’s more conservative. She says she’s been working out and getting in shape for this vacation for months and wants to look good for James. She is proud of her body, and the work she put into it, and doesn't mind showing a little skin. She says the things she bought are very normal and James is overreacting. She feels like he wants her to dress like a nun and he gets jealous too easily. She wants him to realize that she is with him and him alone and a few bikinis aren’t going to change that.


Should Rachel return the bikinis she bought or is James overreacting? Whose side are you on?
