“My wife is awesome but it’s annoying when she calls me while I’m out [with the boys] and I told her I’d be home late.” —Brian, 31, married
Anslem says: I understand missing your man, but if you give him a pass to hang with the fellas let him enjoy it—especially if he spends most of his time with you anyway. The worst thing you can do is call to see what he’s doing and when he’s coming home. That just makes him look bad in front of his friends and makes you look like a nag. It’s not like he didn’t tell you he’d be out “late,” so just let the man enjoy his freedom in peace.
