Prepping married but alone?

Recently I was asked by a frustrated wife about how to get her hubby on board with prepping. I asked my wife about this since we have both been with the idea pretty much from the beginning. Her suggestion seems to be a wise one, your hubby will probably not get on board at this time because it's not his idea. Now, how do you make it his idea? If I had a straight honest answer for that question I'd probably be a shrink instead of my current occupation. I can however give you some tips, try showing him what other husbands are doing, show him it's not just a womans world as far as prepping. I suggest having him talk to or read up on men who are pioneering the feild. Here's a link to a guy who seems well grounded and knows what he's doing http://www.pioneerliving.net/ People like your husband sometimes just need to feel it is their idea before it's a "good idea", my sister in law is the same type of person. She is just now considering the idea of prepping, mainly because she has a college education and not me, whatever that has to do with anything. I would also suggest helping him to understand what has been going on on the eastern seaboard with the massive snow storms. Store shelves went bare within hours, many folks are still without heat or water also. Many people believe that when TSHTF that they will just ride it out not knowing how, or that it will just "be their time". Both are ways of thinking that could get them killed. Just for the record, this frustrated wife also mentioned that her husbands friends said they would be ok because they have enough guns. She and I both take it that the friends think they will be able to forcably steal from those who have supplies. I think we all agree that will lead to a lot of bloodshed and quite possible the death of her husband's friends. Oh what the times will be like! I think it should give everyone food for thought, not only about prepping, but protecting the prep and the family.

Keep those emails coming, I need suggestions!
