Was this wrong of me?

I just saw the question about hubbies having no friends which got me thinking of what I did last week. My husband said he was going to a friends b-day party but apparently I wasn't invited. So I screamed and cried like a child until he just said he wouldn't go. I was highly offended that this b-day party was so important that he was going to go without me. Was that a jerk move on my part?

  • Yes, call me selfish but I would not have wanted him to go if I was not invited. Futhermore my husband would not have gone somewhere that I could not go too. We are partners. I don't think you were wrong.

  • IMO yes it was.

    I'm a mother, I understand wanting to get out of the house... but I DON'T want to go hang out with my hubby and all his guy friends!

  • umm honestly maybe i think it may have been a little immature...does he go out often without you? if not then i dont see anything wrong with him going to a friends party without you if you trust him. mine goes out at least twice a month to hang with hus buddies...i dont always like it or what time he comes in but i let him go bc he deserves some free time just as i do.

  • Exactly rochellecole. That's what the fit was about. Why the heck wasn't I invited? So I threw a fit and kept him home.

  • Yes, it was childish and immature. You're not going to have the same friends, and maybe it was supposed to be a "guys day" or something. Guys need to have social interaction just as much as women do. We're all humans. We're all primates. That means we're all social creatures.

    Personally, I like most of my husband's friends. I enjoy when they hang out at our place or when there is a get-together. However, if he's invited on a "guys night" all I can say is, "Your limit on spending is $40." And let him go.

  • My husband probably wouldn't have gone because it was it was rude to not invite his wife and that would have been a decision he made on his own, no fit neccesary. The fit was a little silly, but I understand feeling offended.

  • I would have been mad that I was not invited but I would have been pushing my SO out the door(after 5 min of bitching about being home w/o him). I hate hanging out by myself(as in the only adult) but sometimes he really needs to go. :)

  • it was a little extensive.....but i would be a lil upset if dh was going to bday party I wasnt invited to? weird is that...all our friends know we're together so they wouldn't ever just invite him alone...and if they did, i'd be a lil upset.

  • yes it was he needs his time with his friends as do you...... even if you couldnt go you still should of let him....
