Comment : Does your wife know about this? Tell her. No that won't change a thing about the way you feel but it would surely make her smile. I think it is pretty ok to feel that tinge of jealousy when your partner is enjoying in someone else's company. As long as it is not otherwise hampering your relation with her, I don't think you should either be harsh on yourself or think too much into your own feelings. Let her enjoy all the attention she is getting while you find some interesting folks to interact with too :)

There are these two men I feel jealous about, the way my wife chats with them in parties. I know nothing more will happen, it's just party fun, but still can't help watching out for where she is when they are in the same party. Help please.

Comment : I don't really know if it is exactly something that he has made me realize or is it that his companionship has helped me carve a new trait in me. He listens to my ramblings a lot. Infact a lot of times when I am talking to him, I am almost loud thinking. He has helped me understand me a lot better and still love me. There are various facets of our "selves" that we are afraid to admit or confront and he helps me simply my problems. He gives me lot of clarity by just letting me vent out my thoughts but isn't that something partners do always?

They say we meet parts of 'Self' we don't even know about when in close relationships. I understood that I lie to myself convincingly and believe in my lie with all my heart. But through him, with what I experience (which mocks my lie unabashedly to my face) I know how I trick my own Self. Share something about you?

Comment : I think there are two main reasons why they often shy away from discussing partners like we do. One is primarily the way men have been conditioned to "not express much". They like to keep everything under wraps, especially emotions. Secondly, I feel most of them are extremely ill-equipped when it comes to discussing matters of heart. They avoid confrontations at all cost, I mean the let-us-discuss-and-sort-this-out kind of confrontations. There is a reason why they weren't allowed on Venus :)

I find that women find it easy to talk about partners, men like to keep mum? Is it that they do not feel as much or they just think it is strictly private business?

Comment : Hey Archana. Don't fret. I am sure you can find a way out. May be if you make him feel part of your circle of friends, things will get easier. Life gets so interwoven after marriage that a lot of spheres overlap. So may be call his friends as well as your friends over. That would work as an ice breaker and he won't feel too threatened. Make him feel welcome in your group. Mutual common friends of both partners go a long way. Best of luck

My husband doesn't think that having friends after marriage is okay, specially for a lady. He do have his set of friends, but he expects me to give up on mine, is it really acceptable? My friends are as important to me as his friends are for him, has this ever happened to you? What resort did you find to this problem?
