'I feel my neighbour has fallen for my husband'

We recently moved to a new place and our immediate neighbour has become a source of pain for me. I think she likes my hubby. She deliberately stands at the door of her house and makes small talk. Her door is always ajar during the day as her kid plays in the corridor. I trust my life partner a lot and I’m sure that he won’t slip that easily. But at the same time, I’m worried about her intentions. Her husband is always away and this makes me more tense. We can’t leave this house anytime soon either.

Dear Rukhmini,
You are reading too much into your neighbour’s antics. As her door is ajar, she may be making small talk with your hubby when she comes face-to-face with him. Talking and smiling does not mean she is trying to lure your hubby away from you. So get rid of any nagging doubts in your head. You seem to be an extremely suspicious person due to which you harbour such thoughts. Remember a woman talking with your hubby does not mean that you have lost your guy to her. Grow up and shed your insecurities. Try voicing your doubts to your hubby, I am sure he will laugh out loud.
