“After marriage you are required to find other members of the opposite sex unattractive and boring. Please read the fine print on your marriage license.” — darkpixie08

“It’s harmless! I flirt all the time, but never right in front of my spouse.” — kgail11

“It’s okay as long as you would feel comfortable if your spouse was watching you do it. Anything you wouldn’t want him/her to see, you probably shouldn’t be doing.” — ms.wax

“Some people don’t care if their spouses flirt, but we do. It’s totally disrespectful. To us, flirting is something you do when you are thinking about cheating.” — his#1girl

“I’m a flirt — it’s just in my personality. My husband is a charming guy and he flirts sometimes too. Neither of us minds. We trust each other and know it’s just in good fun.” — katiemiah

“I still get drinks bought for me when I’m out with girlfriends, and the first thing I say is “Thank you, but I am happily married.” Fun conversations are acceptable, but it’s bad when you don’t tell the person that you are married and/or you lead him on.” — jennygirlmt
