Less than im­pressed that an ex is flirt­ing at the fam­ily fu­ner­als

The China Post - - TV & COMICS -

DEAR AN­NIE: I am con­fused about how to han­dle my hus­band’s ex-girl­friend, who shows up at his fam­ily fu­ner­als and stays three hours at the visi­ta­tion hang­ing with my hus­band and rem­i­nisc­ing about the past. They dis­cuss things out loud with no re­spect for me.

This woman is mar­ried, but never comes to th­ese gath­er­ings with her hus­band. And my hus­band still does her taxes, even though I told him he shouldn’t. He’s open­ing the door to trou­ble.

I do trust my hus­band, but not her. She def­i­nitely is still at­tracted to him, and it shows. Is her be­hav­ior nor­mal, or should I tell her at the next fu­neral to pay her re­spects and leave?

— Not Jeal­ous, Just Hurt

Dear Not: Please don’t let your in­se­cu­ri­ties cause you to over­re­act. If you trust your hus­band, it doesn’t mat­ter what his ex- girl­friend does. And how of­ten does the fam­ily have fu­ner­als that you need to worry about this? We agree that she is be­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ately flir­ta­tious, but it is only a big deal if your hus­band re­sponds in a sim­i­lar fash­ion. We sug­gest you chummy up to this ex-girl­friend at th­ese events. It will to­tally baf­fle her, greatly im­press your hus­band and make her less of a threat to you.
