Ask Amy: Irish dancing leads to an uncomfortable jig

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

And you did not interfere until Drunk Man returned to the scene of the crime.

In my opinion, both of you handled things well. Remaining passive while Drunk Man encroached upon both of you didn’t seem to be an option.

She argued with you because of the frustration of being harassed and because your behavior reminded her that men stereotypically handle their confrontations in ways that women don’t always have access to.

And she was passionate with you later because – while she didn’t like your behavior, she also did like it.

Like I said – people are complicated.

Dear Amy: My husband and I have been married for 20 years. He had a vasectomy after our son was born 19 years ago because he had two older children from a previous marriage.


During our marriage, he has cheated twice, but I always forgave him.

Surprisingly, at the age of 45, I found out I was pregnant, and he accused me of cheating — which I NEVER did.

A DNA test proved he's the father of our child.

I'm so mad at him for thinking that, and we haven't spoken in weeks.
