Amy says: If Buddy’s girlfriend was your sister or your roommate from college, you would have more of an intimate and personal stake in this, but really — the primary connection to this couple is through the two husbands.

So my message to your husband is: Your friend is being a snake and a cad, and you should tell him, rather than tell on him.

Queen treatment

Dear Amy: After reading the letter you published from the frustrated working woman whose lazy, retired husband expected her to clean up, pick up and put things away for him after she got home from work each day, I just had to write and tell you about my husband of 46 years.

When my wonderful guy retired, he decided that his new “job” was to look after me, the house, the dogs. I still work, and at home I’m treated like a queen. It’s too bad for this woman’s husband that he doesn’t know the secret my husband figured out many years ago. I assure you, neither of us is frustrated.

Amy says: You give some — you get some. This is a delightful balance.
