No, I haven't got a fancy-man

If your spouse has taken to dressing better than usual, sexier even, but whose libido is still not quite up to scratch, you'd be forgiven for thinking that he or she might be seeing someone else.

You might be right. Or, you could be terribly, terribly wrong.

It might be that your sartorially-improved other half has started a job outside the home, and suddenly has an excuse - nay, the opporTUNity - to wear something other than a thermal undershirt, a faded black tee and a pair of jeans with dying Lycra. It might be that your spiffier spouse is still too tired for sex though.

In which case, at least you can rest assured that you aren't being cuckolded.

Reminds me of when my step-father became an insurance agent and went from seventies polyester to actual suits.
It suited him because he was really old-school.
And also really old.

Some people suit old-school, but nobody really suits polyester.

Hmmm, Ray spends an inordinate amount of time (sometimes it seems) choosing his ties in the morning - but seeing as we work together it's unlikely he's meeting up with anyone for secret trysts at lunch cause I'd be bound to notice :-).

I'm starting a temp job next week, for just six weeks. Do you think I should warn the man that the spiffy corporate clothes mean NOTHING?

Violet said...

deborah: unless the insecure and jealous sort, nah - unless your libido takes a dive, because that can only mean one of two things, eh?
