I posed this question in the men's clubhouse for the men's perspective, but would love feedback from women, too. In the way of background, my husband and I have been married for 16 years and we have four kids. Should it be okay for a married man to text a female friend multiple times every day? This is happening in my marriage right now. They text on the way to work, on the way home from work, on weekends, at night. My feeling is that even if this is a platonic friendship as he contends, that type of regular, frequent contact is establishing a friendship with her that he should be trying to have with me. And I also feel it's creating a dangerous comfort level between them that could easily cause it to develop into something physical over time. His feeling is that there's nothing wrong with it as long as the content of their texting is non-sexual. I'm a very conservative and religious person so he thinks I'm just being old-fashioned. I don't believe religious women are the only ones who would object to this. I don't believe any of the women in my life, religious or not, would be okay with this. What is the general feeling about it out there? This issue has caused us so much contention in our marriage that we're looking at marriage counseling and I fear divorce. Really needing some feedback.
