Wife’s request of trimming mustache during Sefirah

Question:

Hi,

My wife hopes to be going to the mikvah tomorrow and she asked if it would be permissible for me to trim my mustache even though it’s during sefirah. Is this permitted?

Thank you.

 

Answer:

Hello,

It is permitted similar to when a person’s moustache is disturbing his eating.

Best wishes
