My husband has decided this is cheating...ETA *edited again!*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I'm playing a lead in a community theater production (Sophie in 'Mamma Mia'). Things have been going really well, and I've been having a lot of fun.

On Sunday we had a dress rehearsal, and our families were invited to watch. After the show my husband seemed out of sorts, so I asked him what was wrong. Turns out he's all pissy because I have to kiss a guy a couple times as part of the show. Really? He says he didn't know I would be kissing anyone, or he wouldn't have been ok with me being in the show in the first place. He also says he doesn't want our friends and family to come, cuz he's embarrassed for them to watch me 'cheat' on him.

I think he's blowing this way way way way out of proportion. What do you ladies think?

ETA: I didn't bother to bring it up to him because I assumed he would realize it himself, having seen the live show and the movie before.

Edit #2: okay, so we talked. He said that he sees now that he overreacted, and I said I understand why he felt the way he did, and I would make sure to discuss these things with him next time. He understands now that it means nothing. Part of the reason I was so upset was it seemed like he couldn't trust me to be faithful over one stupid kiss, but now we both know how the other feels. Thank you everyone for (mostly) being supportive and letting me vent!

I thought he would realize since we've seen the show and the movie before...

Just a bit, but I also think you should have told him about it rather than just let him find out by seeing it.

 I think that everyone's perspective is different... Maybe you should have warned him?

I can understand his point of view.  I wouldn't want to see my DH kiss anyone else.

Whoa, he's insecure! If it were my SO, I would probably point out that he should have known, having seen the show before, and that he needs to get himself together and grow up a bit.

He needs to take a chill pill and get over it.

He's being overly sensitive, but I think you should've said something to him before-hand as well to prepare him and see if he was COMPLETELY okay with it.  Even if he's seen the show before, the thought probably never entered into his head.

You whore how dare you !lol I hope your hubby gets over it or maybe you can fake a kiss?

I think hes being a bonehead but I also think that is something you should have told him BEFORE

Lol wow he's being over dramatic but I would have mentioned it when I first took the part but that's because I always talk things through with my dh.

i think you should have mentioned it before hand. i would be a little put off by seeing my SO kiss someone else on stage (acting or not) if i wasn't expecting it. if i knew what was going to happen i'd be prepared and not care tho since it's for a play.
