My husband and I have been married for over ten years. We have two beautiful sons together and our relationship is great. My only issue with “Mike” is that when he has a few too many drinks, he gets flirty with the waitresses of the restaurants that we frequent.
I don’t know how to bring it up to him. It’s not that I’m scared to, I just don’t think it’s a big deal, until he does it again.
This obviously is a “big deal” or you wouldn’t be asking about it. I suggest that you and Mike begin to talk about this in a way that does not put Mike immediately on the defensive. Letting him know that you have a problem with this instead of attacking him will go a long way in getting this resolved. Make a time when you and he can talk about it without interruption. Tell him how this makes you feel when he behaves this way. Good luck.
