Ask Kari: My husband is flirting with other people on Facebook – what should I do?

Dear Kari,

I recently looked at my husband’s Facebook page and noticed that he is flirty with other people. What should I do? I don’t think that he has ever stepped out on me, but I do not like the fact that he feels comfortable flirting with other women since he is married.

Dear Concerned Wife,

Social media can go well, and then it can go terribly wrong. I suggest that you pick a good time to talk with your husband privately and be honest about what you saw and how it made you feel. Then, I believe it is fair to request that he establish more respectful boundaries for your relationship by removing online flirting as an option in your relationship.
