I do not know the circumstances, what verbiage was utilized or its tone, the intent of the utterance or how she took it. What I do know is that physically attractive women get hit on constantly and learn to deal with it. They may not like, but they deal with it. A man married to a looker better get used to that fact of life and accept it or he will be in constant confrontations not only with other men but with his wife, significant other or lady friend. Such experiences just come with the territory. Get over it!
Yep, it's all about trust. Otherwise, let it go unless it's bothering your spouse.
Happiness is when your life on the outside matches your life on the inside.

Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy on the part of husbands and the wives. I think we live in " The Villages ". I'd like to think we are generally about thirty years over nonsense of this nature, but evidently not. Someone is paying entirely too much attention to the national press's current fascination with men acting like stags in rut when they were thirty years old. We'd all like to go back, but this is not 1965.

Do not I repeat do not take your wife out in public in the villages, take her out in an under 55 neighborhood and I promise they won't give her a second look.

Btw, congrats on having a good looking wife. Many widowers would just like to have their wives back home in their loving arms.

Probably more effective to say something to the guy you're not happy with than post on ToTV.

Jus say'n.

When I only get one pickle on my cheeseburger, I talk to the manager of the establishment........not create a new thread.

Look, sure I guess most men & women do. Speak to another women about her looks is a shot against her husband, the talkers wife and the person that your unsolicited compliment may bother. Times they are a changing.

I had a very close friend say to my wife if front of me first time he met her 25 years ago....."When are you expected to get your eyesight back"? Now that was funny and true because we knew what he meant.

High School is over. Respect is the name of the game nowadays. In my particular case Animal Magnetism is the problem. Not good looks.

When people say to my husband that he has a trophy wife, we thank them.

At least Amish women don't have their hair done in clouds.

Yea. I gotta say that coming on here with that original post seems a little insulting. And, that sort of jealousy seems to me like something out of 1950. Kinda like, "don't cuss in front of my wife".

Well OP, I think you have an idea now...where the immature & boorish behavior originates.
Standing up for the underdog and against bullies...every chance I get.

Married couples will start thinking twice about moving to TV if this behavior continues.
very few people will think twice because of that. It is likely not the first time this cad said something, but I'd bet it isn't wide spread. Most people here are another place with this level of civility and I'll move there...
