I have a work dinner to go to on Thursday night and my husband is acting as if I'm going out on a date. I've told him that it's me, the boss, and a client so he knows very well I'm not going out on a "date" with anyone, yet he's still upset. He even asked me if he could go with me and I told him no. If he had a business dinner scheduled I wouldn't attempt to invite myself along. What is he thinking?
All Work/No Play
Dear All Work,
I probably don't need to tell you that your husband's behavior seems a bit suspicious. Everyone knows that the person accusing someone of wrong doing is usually the one doing wrong in the first place. You mentioned that your husband is in the line of work where business dinners could come up. My guess would be that he's been on a "business" dinner that ended up more play than work, and he's worried you'll do the same. Go to your business dinner Thursday and, in the meantime, find a good marriage counselor and make an appointment A.S.A.P. There's a lot more going on there than him just being jealous of you getting to enjoy a free dinner and drinks with business associates.
Keep me posted,
