"My husband decided we would go out with his ex-wife and her boyfriend and his kid to the bar at the beginning of October. Ex-wife starts the night off by telling everyone very loudly that she is still in love with my husband and misses him. I brush it off to her being shit-faced because she had already started drinking prior and was pretty drunk. Well, the night progresses and she's all over my husband and trying to kiss him and he just sits there and takes it knowing full well it's bothering me and also I had to remove his hand from her ass after coming back from the bathroom. Also, my husband smokes 2-3 cartons of cigarettes a week and flat told me and a few others if I was to start smoking he would leave me. Every time I have a friend of the opposite sex I'm automatically cheating. If my employees text or call me I'm cheating. I'm an assistant manager. He can walk into a station or whatever and say hello gorgeous or beautiful to the person behind the counter but If I say anything to the male it's world war 3…. Like I love this man with everything in me but how do I go about explaining how this is not okay."
