So, Internets, I need your advice. I have a friend, we'll call her Carole. She and her husband Mike dated for a year, lived together for a year and have been married for four months. They are a good couple and love each other very much, but they've had some fairly serious problems throughout their relationship. The major problem, the one they can't get past, the one that keeps popping up no matter what, is that Mike talks to other girls. At first it was some girls from his hometown, with whom he was friends before he met Carole. Understandable and a bit sad that they couldn't all be friends, but they couldn't. But after he cut contact with those girls, he looked up some girls he had been friends with even further back in his past and started talking to them. Unfortunately, this isn't just "Hey, how are you?" kind of talking to each other, either. On at least one occasion, one of these girls has gotten the idea to send Mike nud!e photos of herself. I don't know about you, but I sure don't decide to do that out of the blue with no encouragement from the guy. Then Carole had a huge fight with her childhood best friend (we'll call her Lisa) and ended up kicking her out of the wedding. After Lisa tried to maintain contact with Mike, Carole stopped speaking to her. Apparently, Mike did maintain contact with her, and even had plans to have lunch with her the day before the wedding. Carole and Mike have had numerous discussions about this "friend" and Carole has repeated asked Mike to stop talking to her. Well, last Friday, Carole unexpectedly left work early and went to Mike's work to tell him why she had left work early. He was leaving work. (He has a retail job and an odd schedule, she works a more corporate type job and a more standard 8-5 schedule.) He was startled and a bit skittish to see her. They left and went home together. She knew that he had been talking to Lisa over text messaging the night before. Later that day, he received a text message from Lisa, saying, "I called you, why didn't you come?"
My questions to you:
Where was Mike going?
What should I say to Carole? She's entirely focused on Mike talking to Lisa.
