Husband likes attention

My husband likes to talk to women clients. He tells one
of them about personal stuff about our marriage. She is old
enough to be his mom. I think it is none of their business. I told
him he gets too friendly with his clients but he just deflects the
situation everytime I bring it up. What should I do. Does anyone
else have this problem.

  • Maybe he is looking for some advice since she is older. My children come to me for advice so I don't find this to be a threatening situation. I don't think their spouses do either.

  • My ex husband constantly involved his older sister in our business. Notice I said EX! It's not a problem unless it puts a strain on your relationship or if you feel it crosses some boundaries.

  • I do not like that either. But you can not change the guy just tell him to tone it down....

  • The part of him telling personal info to a stranger. He should be talking
    to me or someone closer to him.

  • I think it's pretty inappropriate of him, and inconsiderate to you.

  • Sometimes it is easier to tell strangers, or people you aren't so close to, things because they can provide an unbias opinion. Its probably harmless and he may not realize the extent that it bothers you. My SO is a teacher, and the only male teacher- he's friendly so all the other teachers often come to him for advice. It used to bother me but then I realized it doesn't matter in the end. As long as he's open about his family and you trust him, I wouldn't worry. All men love attention and I'd be happy if my SO was trying to get advice f/ others. I tell my Mom everything which he hates b/c he knows when he sees her (she lives across the country), that she knows a lot-- he's told me before I should ask less close people for advice lol. I'm sure its uncomfortable, but if you trust him it should be fine.
