My husband met a Guy while he was overseas. They Guy is in his unit. now they text each other constantly. It was bothering me so I told my husband but it didn't do much good. They still text some through the week and all day on the weekends. The Guy is married as well. Should I be worried?

mrs.ajg agony auntTo the last anonymous female that answered today. I feel the same way you do. Me and my hubby have had problems since he got back from Afghanistan. I used to text him whenever I was away from home and he told me I texted him out of insecurity and that his male friend actually talk to him. It hurt me because I love him so much. Now I don't hear from my husband at all until I get home but he still text his friend. They conversate more than we do and I'm sick of being on the back burner!! You have every right to feel the way you feel girl.

I am curious as how it makes you feel exactly. I recently got married two months ago and before that I lived in another state than from my husband. He is in the Air Force and he has a close male friend as well. I have tried talking to him a few times about it. All the texting and the "bromance" is getting annoyinG!It seems as if he'd rather spend time with his male friend than me! I am tired of it! I feel like I can't say much about it because I'd feel like I am nagging him about it. I don't know what to do! I am at the end. He says he is working on it, but their text messages say otherwise! They work together so I don't see the need of texting him at work. It is very confusing for me. I am unsure if I am just blowing it out of proportion or should I be concerned.

(maybe christmas would be an appropriate time) ...u need to meet them in person to see how this guy friends marriage is.

it takes will more likely get better results.

mrs.ajg agony auntWe talked about it today and he jumped down my throat about it. And yes they are both in the army but is it fair to put me on the back burner. He doesn't even like texting me when away from home

Cupid Boy agony auntThey could just be having a "bromance". (Ever seen "I Love You Man"?) Doesn't mean anything else is going on. I'm sure if you were very close with a girl friend, you wouldn't appreciate your husband criticizing it.
