I’ve been married for just about eight months, and my husband wants to go out sometimes to hang out with his friends. My question is, should I let him go once in a while? He’s Caucasian and thinks its okay for husbands and wives to do things on their own. As a Latina, I was taught differently. According to my father, I should not let my husband go out because he might leave me for another mujer.

Dear Que Digo:
Let the boy go out and play. He’ll get bored sitting around the house all day, every day. If a man wants to cheat, he’ll do it no matter how short the leash. I would even go so far as to say that if someone is feeling smothered, there's more of a chance that they would look elsewhere for loving! You should also have a life of your own. So go out with your amigas and relax.
