Dear Steve, This weekend I met my girlfriend's best friend and husband; my girlfriend and I have only been dating for three months so this was my first time meeting this friend. When we walked into the restaurant the friend shook my hand but her husband who was clearly intoxicated embraced my girlfriend in an inappropriate manner and then proceeded to kiss on her, not on the lips but neck and cheek. I thought this was very inappropriate on his part and on my girlfriend's part for allowing this to take place. Well, this continued after we got seated. I went to the car to get our jackets and when I came back in they had been seated and "he" tells me to sit next to his wife which again didn't sit well with me, I didn't want to create a scene or appear to be insecure but I felt this was all inappropriate behavior. I felt he disrespected his wife and her best friend by allowing this to continue to go on and that's the end of it but it went on the entire evening. I spoke to my girlfriend about this when we got in and I could tell she didn't like my saying anything about it. Her response to me was she didn't see anything inappropriate and then I said to her did you ever consider your friend's feelings? Because she clearly appeared bothered by it. She said to me "well, since I see that it's a problem for you I will not allow this to happen again." Not one time did she acknowledge that it was inappropriate. Am I wrong Steve? I truly wanted to kick his behind and drop her because you're old enough to know that this was wrong. Now she said if I had done the same thing that she would be very upset and not tolerate it. Please advise. Thank you, Dallas, TX

Hello everyone on the morning show. I don't so much have an issue, but a little problem. I am 25 years old and still a virgin. I never really dated or been in a long-term relationship, but when I've tried to date the subject of sex always comes up for him and for me in the back of my head. I don't know if I want to wait for marriage and a lot of my friends' say I need to give up my v-card already. I feel like I'm too old to be so inexperienced, but I don't want to rush into anything I'll regret. I have so many positive things happening in my life right now and dating isn't one of them. Is that strange? I thought I would be married with children before 30, but that may not be the case. Am I just an extremely late bloomer or have I set the standards of the type of man I want God to send me too high? I believe I am worth more than what is offered to me in terms of my ideal man. I was told that most men don't care for inexperienced women and I don't want to miss out on love due the illusion I've created for myself about the perfect guy. Should I continue to hold onto my virginity?

Dear Steve and Shirley, I am absolutely at my breaking point right now. My husband and I have been together for three years and everything was going well until about four months ago. We never completely stopped having sex, but there has definitely been an emotional disconnect. I never before felt like I had a reason not to trust him, so I've never snooped through any things even though I've always know the password for the phone and email. Well, the recent change in him finally got to me and I went through his phone. I discovered that not only has he slept with someone else, but she is his cousin. I was absolutely disgusted! I won't go into details about the full text, but he called her his Freak. She asked him if he had told anyone about them. He said no and she had better keep her mouth shut. They carried on some more about some of the more explicit things they had done and talked about how it would have only gotten better if we wouldn't have moved away. Needless to say, I'm hurt, angry, scared, and confused! I tried to act normal, but he reads me like a book, so after hours of him asking "baby, what's wrong?" I exploded and stormed out of the house screaming about nothing! He still doesn't know what the issue is, only that I won't stop crying. I'm just so confused right now. Should I even try to talk to him about what I saw? Or should I just go? I mean, we are both 30 years old. So we are definitely old enough to know better and they both seemed to be amused and turned on by the fact that they are cousins who are sleeping together.
