Do you think it is ok for your husband to go to lunch with an older
client he has known for 20 years. I am not jealous but I don't think it is
necessary to have lunch after a meeting. She is much older. He is
afraid she will get mad if he does not go. He should care if I get mad
if he does go. I cannot get through to him that she should not have
such control of him .

Sometimes going to lunch with a client is expected. My husband and I both go to lunch with clients from time to time. My husband lunches at least monthly with one woman. I will be having lunch with four men later this week. If it's normal for your husband's job, then it really doesn't make any sense for you to ask him to stop. If he blows off this client, then she might no longer be a client.

?? Do you have an issue in your marriage??? I see no reason in the world to monitor your husbands work... you sound VERY insecure in your marriage.
My husband is an attny and I can tell you that many many many business relationships are built and/or made more solid over a casual lunch, dinner, and even on the golf course. Just because the meeting is over doesnt mean that business associates cant go to lunch together. Part of having a solid business relationship is knowing and trusting the person you work with. I think it is good business habits to do things like lunch.
ease up... your making women look bad.

Sometimes doing lunch after a meeting is just good business etiquette. You never know what other kind of valuable information you can glean from clients. And sometimes when people take that little extra time clients may want to do even more business with the company.
