Marital Advice - Jealousy

Last night, Muddear took it upon herself to give me marital advice. She started by laughing at my nightgown..."is that what you wear to bed?"

Tickled, I responded affirmatively. "He likes you to flounce around like that?" Again I responded affirmatively as Muddear appraised my short, purple, sleeveless, gown.

"He don't get jealous?"
"No, Muddear, I don't have to worry about that."
"Well, where you goin to sleep?"
"In my room in the bed like I always do."
"With your husband?"
"Yes, where else would I sleep?"
"That's good, I thought you were separated."
"Oh No! Why did you think that?"
"He don't get jealous?"
"No Muddear."
"That's good. You don't want to live or be married to a jealous man. It makes it hard. You be glad you don't have a jealous man."

Me too! At first I couldn't figure out where the conversation was going. But then I thought, "what the heck! Just go with it."
