My husband and I were recently on a boat excursion in Australia with 9 other couples. I struck up a conversation with a gentleman (Jim). My husband is hard of hearing, so could not contribute as he was on my right side and Jim was on my left. Not that this has any judgemental feelings, but Jim was gay. I suspected he was, and when chatting he confirmed he was. For the record, my husband did not know Jim was gay. Anyway, I learned that Jim was an author and I was quite interested in his novels, so our conversation ended up taking about 45 minutes. My husband felt disrespected, so he went to the upper deck of the boat. I followed him about 1/2 hour later. He was, and still is, very upset with me. I understand how I hurt him and I don't excuse my actions, but would like to hear from others of whether or not I was totally off the wall and/or if my husband is bang on. I do feel bad as once he explained how it made him feel, it hit home. For the record, I am a socializing-type of individual. Thanks for any advice in advance.
