Re: Menapause

Yes, that was rather disrespectful, but perhaps in their minds they were just making a joke, what do I know?

It has really made a bad impression on you, however, for two months are gone and you are sort of still dwelling on this. Can't you let it go, or are there any other signs that your relationship with your husband is going sour?

And why were you looking forward to your menopause?

Re: Menapause

It sounds like he was joking around with his friend at your expense. He should have apologized when he found out that you had overheard them.

I don't get the joke though. What he said makes no sense to me. What does wearing ski pants and walking through a mall have to do with menopause? I guess that I am missing something here.

Re: Menapause

I'm also sure it was a person trying to be funny. It's too bad you didn't step right in and tell him your husband was planning his mid-life crisis to include a sports car and that the two of you would ride in it to the mall together and strut your stuff.

I think the idea of being freed from accidental pregnancy leads some men to get the wrong idea of what a woman is interested in. Heck, maybe it was this guy's experience. But one stupid, weak joke should not change the way you feel about yourself. You can't help it your husband has a tacky friend. And that's really the only impact on you. Otherwise, you're fine.

Re: Menapause

It sounds like the kind of stupid thing an immature person would say. The fact that it makes no sense is a pretty big clue. Your husband should pick better friends!

Re: Menapause

Look on the bright side, at least it was his friend that made that ridiculous comment and not your husband. Don't let some idiots stupid comments upset you, he's not worth it.
