Slacker and Steve - Trash Talking Spouse (Audio)

What would you do if you caught your spouse venting to their friends?

April 13, 2016

Janine and her husband were attending a birthday party with all of their married friends. The husbands were backyard and the wives were inside the house chatting. She decided to wander outside and find her husband. As she was walking towards him she overheard him talking badly about her to all of the other husbands. Janine also heard the other men communicating negative comments about their wives. She couldn’t shake off what she had heard, so Janine decided to confront her husband. He claimed that it is normal for spouses to vent to their friends about their spouses. She disagrees and is feeling extremely hurt. She is confused on if she should tell the other wives about what their husbands had said and if she should still hold resentment towards her trash talking husband. 

 

Is “venting” to others normal in a relationship? Should Janine tell the other wives about their husband’s mean comments?
