I'm curious about how your husband/partner/boyfriend feels about you going out without him. Neither my husband nor I are jealous people, so we both feel comfortable going out with friends and knowing we won't get accused of cheating. We go out together, of course, but I think everyone needs a night out with friends and no husband once in a while!
A good friend of mine is having issues with her husband right now, because every time she goes out with girlfriends, whether it's a couple drinks at a lounge or coffee at Starbucks, she comes home to an angry husband who wants to know how many men she tried to pick up while she was out. She's even put on 20 pounds, thinking that if she was less attractive, he would be less jealous. I think he's got some insecurity/control issues, and I'm not sure how to help my friend out.
Do you go out without your spouse? How does he handle it?
