I'm worried my wife fancies the guy I saw her chatting with at the school gates

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN my wife left her car to talk to a dad at the school gates, I saw red.

I was waiting to collect the kids, as I had the day off. My wife clearly forgot, so she pulled up on her way home from work as usual.

I used to be the jealous type but it’s got me into hot water before, so I try to control my feelings.

When I saw her chatting to this guy, though, I was furious.

She has known him for years.

He works full-time, so I doubt he does the school run often. It was probably a “long time no see” type of chat.

But I can’t help but wonder if she fancies him.

I’m 35, she’s 33 and so is he, I think.

Am I overthinking it? Or do I trust my gut and quiz her?

DEIDRE SAYS: The former. Take a deep breath, relax and look at it logically.

Your wife is a sociable person. If she hadn’t seen a friend for a long time – male or female – she would go to say hello.

You are right to keep a lid on your feelings because if you have been lied to or cheated on before, any slight concern might take you back to that bad place.
