Her brother-in-law recently lost a lot of weight and is flirting with him to boost his confidence. She also used to be overweight and says that it helps when someone encourages you. Her husband is not happy this and thinks that both of them are crossing a line, whether she is trying to help or not.
Slacker and Steve can see both sides of this great mate debate, but also think that something fishy could happen. Slacker doesn’t see why she feels obligated to be the brother-in-law’s personal cheer leader. Steve sees the wife’s point of view but thinks that she might have an ulterior motive.
Whose side are you on?
I don’t think that it is her place to boost her brother-in-laws confidence. I believe that her heart is in the right place, but her relationship with the brother-in-law has developed into something different than what it should be.
