I am 30 and my wife is 28. We dated all through college and got married right after. Her and I hang out a lot and go to the bar with friends on the weekends although we generally rarely talk to each other. She is a teacher and doesn't have to work in the summer. During the week she will go out to the bars with her also-married friend until bar close at least once per week during weekdays. My issue is her friend has cheated on her husband many times (the friend has told me) and has a drinking problem that her and my wife fail to acknowledge. Her friend is out at the bars at least 4 nights per week. My wife says she needs "girl time" but girl time always involves going to the bar on weekdays until 2 AM. And it's never before bar close - it's either bar close or don't bother going out. It's not that I don't trust her, it's more that I don't see why "girls night" always has to involve the same bars with a woman that cheats on her husband and drinks excessively. Why can't they go to a movie, or shopping, or out to dinner, etc. like I do with my guy friends? Am I over reacting or is her behavior normal. On the plus side I know she is out with the friend and not random other men. We do not have any children. Is this normal or am I over reacting?
