Do i have a right to be mad?

My fiance goes out all the time. The people that he hangs out with do nothing but stay drunk in a bar, do drugs, and gauk over women. I dont like his friends at all but i dont say anything because its his friends yah kno. But he goes to this bar 3-5 times a week and shoots pool with those guys and i have no idea what goes on. When i call he does not answer and he says his phone was in viberate or he was shooting pool. I dont mind if he goes out like 2 nights a week, but not back to back. He did good this week, he went out onday, and friday, which i am more than ok with, but he told me last night he was not going out tonight because he went out that night and we are running low on money right now and have bills to pay. We both got off of work at 5, and he has been at that bar ever since. Its almost 9 now and he still is not home and wont repsond to my test until like 20 min after i send them. Do i have the right to be mad and say something to him about it?

  • If this is how he treats you now and  how irresponsible he is now. I'd really rethink him going from fiance to husband.

  • You have to put your foot down NOW! And tell him what you expect from him. You are his wife. Would he prefere you be someone elses? If you dont like his friends, it's ok you dont have to like them. He's a married man and he's playing the single man's game. Twice a month is enough for him to hang out drinking and playing pool. Imagine how many hundreds of dollars is being wasted each month. How can you save for the future. You'd better get pissed and put your foot down or hes gonna keep thing you don't really mind that much and keep doing the same thing..... and its gonna kepp getting worse if you do nothing about it. How would he like it if you went out 3 days a week and didn't answer his calls? would that be okay with him? You know your dude so find a way to "safely" tell him. I dont want to get you into any "trouble". I am responding so strongly because I resolved a similar situation not to long I know!

  • I would be thinking about if that is what you want to be married to. Just because you get married does not mean he will change.

  • ummm...yeah i would be irritated myself. i think you have every right to say something to him about it. and he should understand where you are coming from. i don't think its cool that just cause they are guys they think they could come and go as they please. its like they don't have to think twice about leaving. they think we are there baby sitters. but yet if we wanted to go out like they do, it would be a huge problem. good luck if you do talk to him about it.

  • If it were me, and it's not, I'd tell him if you like this bar so much have fun, but I'm done with you. It just seems too fishy and shady to me.

  • He sounds like he is immature and has no idea how to put his family first, so no you arent wrong for being mad. I would be too. It sounds like he is going out alot... I would tell him if I was going to stay with him he had better get his priorities straight, thats just not normal.
