My husband is 32 years old and he works at a strip club. No, he doesn’t dance on the poles, he is a bouncer for the club. At first, this was OK with me because the job paid well and we needed the money. Recently, he has been getting friendly with the girls and they give him their numbers.
We have been married for 10 years now Sooz and he has never strayed. I have heard him on the phome with one of the girls however, after I have already gone to bed. While I understand this may be purely harmless, I just don’t want it to develop into something that will affect our marriage.
I have spoken to him about this already and he just says I’m just being paranoid. What do you say?

Dear Strip Club Blues:
While there MAY be nothing wrong in what he is doing, I really don’t like that “After Hours” phone call. It is just too easy to fall under the spell of some young thing that has nothing to lose.
I would bring this up to him again, let him KNOW how special he is to you, and suggest that he start looking for a different job, preferably something without pretty naked little young things making love to a pole.
A bouncer is a bouncer, and can work just about anywhere. Why be around temptation when you don’t NEED to be. I say it’s better to be SAFE than sorry….I’m with YOU on this one. Good Luck!!!
