My wife tries to be supportive and has moments where she is but she also goes to the polar extreme and gets quite angry. I would say she really hates or has hated my Star Wars collecting/customizing and my other hobby following UK basketball.
We had a horrible flooding incident in the Star Wars room just before the 4th of July where she went off the deepend. It was fixed in a week but for that week, it was stressful getting around. Even I have come to the conclusion that one can have enough stormtroopers. If you have a legion, you don't need, or rather I don't need 5 legions to be create my dioramas.
The artistic part is something she does respect but the volume of figures or having them out on display is a bit much too her based on our space. Of course it is wild kingdom on the porch with her plants.
I do think or expect that when we move from our apartment to a home with a basement it should be better. With a home that has a basement dedicated to my collection, she will have an upstairs living area Star Wars free. And I will have space to create my own galawy located far, far away.
Totally aside from this conversation...I love the site and appreciate the great artistic talent I have seen here. I will be shortly sharing some of my custom figures.
