Ok, I need to figure out whether or not I am being irrational when it comes to a certain situation in my life.
My wife of 2 yrs was in a non-serious (according to her) relationship with a guy that is best friends with her brother. Consequently I have to be around this guy sporadically and I dont really have much of a problem since she broke it off with him to start dating me. Although her brother tells me differently, I dont think I care that much either way…maybe I do?
Last year I played softball on her brothers team and we had a good time this year the ex-boyfriend is on the team and I dont have a problem with that he is a decent enough guy. We had practice on Monday and he was there with his pregnant girlfriend. This morning my wife casually mentions to me that his girlfriend is ugly and went on to mention some other stuff about her that I basically tuned out.
It pissed me off. I see this as a jealousy type of thing or perhaps some sort of interest in the ex? I dont know but my instincts told me to be pissed and to regard what she said as suspect. I haven’t raised this as an issue with her just yet and I am not sure if I should or if I should just let it drop.
Sorry for the long story but I thought some background needed laid down to fully appreciate the story.
