Original Visitor's Question from a 61-70 year old Female
My husband and I went to a brunch at my (woman) cousin's house. The ladies were all clustered around the table in the kitchen, the men were standing off to the side talking. My husband got his food and sat in the family room, and my cousin joined him. The two of them sat and talked for about 45 min. I was so mad and embarrassed, and we had a big fight later that night at home.
I called my cousin the next week and told her how I felt. She and my husband had been flirting a lot with each other before, but I never dreamed it would go that far. I haven't spoken to her since, and I haven't forgiven my husband. Not that he has asked me to.
He has done things like this on 3 occasions before. He's very nice and sweet at home, but when he gets out, he acts like he doesn't want to be seen with me.
Assuming he doesn't want to be seen with me, what would make a person have so little integrity that they would hurt and embarrass another person like that? Mind you, we are not kids. I am 51 and he is 55.

Flirting is Normal
just because your husband flirts with your cousin doesnt mean he wants anything from her.i am not sticking up for your husband but when i was growing up my dad flauntaly flirted with other women but my mom knew he was coming home to her.your husband probably really loves you but watch that it doesnt get to anything more then flirting.maybe you can give him reason not to flirt with your cousin by doing something to keep his mind on what he has even if you have to dress sexy,draw a bubble bath for two,set up a romantic dinner in your favorite restauraunt.
