Re: Wife demands I confront friend
I think you should talk to your friend about it and give him a chance to defend himself. Probably he said those very words, it was a joke, ok, but if he knew your wife was so sensitive, he should have avoided it, lest he would be misunderstood. And do you know the old saying: "when a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth"? So maybe your friend really meant to say "the pig thing", what do I know? As for your wife, I really don't know her, so it would be hasty of me to tell her to seek treatment or therapy for her jealousy, misbehaviour, suspicious mind, etc, but I think that having a job or something meaningful to do would help her focus on more important things in her life.
