Lonely Dad in Arizona & Guilt trip in Texas
0:00 -:--
These Confessions come from: “Lonely Dad in Arizona” Before we had kids, my wife and I would occasionally go out with groups of friends or to social functions, but it was difficult to get her to go home. She always liked closing the place down, and if we left early I felt like I was dragging her away. For the first five years after our children were born we didn’t get out much. My wife is now starting to go out with friends from work — a mixed group of single and married guys and gals. She has invited me to come along, but sitters are expensive and I’m not friendly with her co-workers. She stays out with them until 3 to 4 a.m. once a month. I think that’s ridiculously late when you have a husband and children at home. When she’s not here, I can’t sleep and I worry that something is wrong. She rarely calls to check in unless I ask her to. Overall I trust her, but with her drinking heavily and many single guys around, I don’t feel comfortable with the situation. I don’t know what to do. “Guilt trip in Texas”…
