Ask Amy: Sexting inspires unkind comparisons
Dear Amy: My wife's best friend recently went through a period where she was unhappy in her marriage.
She began sexting with willing male partners and then sharing some of the pictures she had received with my wife.
I know about this because my wife asked me to fix the Wi-Fi on her phone.
While I was working on her phone, her friend texted one of these photos.
Alarmed and a little shocked, I opened the text message string and found myself in a world of hurt.
My wife was not only tacitly giving her friend permission to send these pictures, but she was comparing my physique unfavorably to these men.
When I confronted my wife about this, her first reaction was to change the passcode on her phone.
She has since apologized, but I'm still having trouble.
I can't seem to shake the feeling that she finds me unattractive when compared to other men, and whenever her friend is around, I feel very embarrassed and ashamed knowing that my body was described unfavorably to her in such explicit detail.
What should I do?
