Double Dates

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Q: My brother-in-law and his wife just moved back home. Now he wants my husband and I to double date with him with his old high school girlfriend. I like his wife and don’t want to do this but my husband says we have to because he is family. What do you think?

A: I think you should trust your instincts and stay home. Your brother-in-law’s morals are less than sterling. You don’t have to sink to his level. Cheating on your wife is not an acceptable behavior. Your husband is letting the ‘family argument’ cloud his judgment. I think you should remind him of something his mother has told him at least 100 times. “If your brother jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?” It’s a little bit tough sometimes to take a stand but if I were you, I’d just say ‘no’!
