I get...and agree that what he did was a bit wrong. But I'm still of the mind that honesty about her feelings toward his family are necessary.
Now...having read some of the more recent posts I understand we have to look at the context.
I'm in the ballpark with many others who hides none of my texts from my spouse....and she hides none from me. If she has something to say she has the fortitude to say it to me directly...not behind my back to someone else whether it is family or best friend.
And we've last this long.
