Offended wife

Dear Queenie,

  Whenever my husband goes shopping with me he winks and smiles at all the pretty women. He tries to claim he doesn’t do it, unless I say something to him when he is actually doing it.

  Queenie, I find this is disrespectful to me as well as these other women. What do you say?—Offended wife

Dear Wife,

  Your husband may think this is a way of being friendly, or he may be trying to prove to himself that he is still attractive to women. As long as it goes no further than a smile and a wink, and as long as those women are not offended by his attention, I say it is not worth getting upset about.
