Got an Answer?
This guy has a death wish. I thinks it says that he doesn't care about his wife at all cause if he did he wouldn't do it. I don't know how she puts up with that, I wouldn't. He sounds like he would be a real sleazebag.
How long were they together? Did they travel together or go to lots of concerts etc? Could be just that he has some great memories from a good time of his life and because he was with her she is part of it. My partner was with his ex for 15 years so he does have stories from when they were together, they were together such a long time and did quite a bit together. You can't expect people to just not talk about their memories just because it involves an ex, it could be a massive chunk of his life.
Yeah weird. Obviously nostalgic for her and prob his youth
And worried about what he would do if she suddenly came back into his life, wanting him back.
Do other males in the group of friends think its a bit off ?
One of them needs to give him some feedback about what their wives would say or do if they went on like that in front of them, and in public.
