A MAN has handed over complete control of his social life to his wife, she has complained.
Tom Booker got married five years ago and since then has let any friendships that his wife does not actively maintain for him wither and die, seemingly without regret.
Wife Kerry Booker said: “He used to see his uni friends, his football friends, his work friends, all of them. But now he just comes home from the office every night and sits there. Every night.
“I say things like, ‘How’s Joe these days?’ and he’ll say, ‘I’ve got no idea. I think maybe he got divorced?’
“Last month he went for a drink with Jack, but only because me and Jack’s wife organised it and forced them out of the house with emotional blackmail like ‘He was your best man’ and ‘He’s lost his job, maybe you should see if he’s okay?’
“Even then he was home by half-ten. I don’t care about him avoiding social isolation as he gets older. I just want a night to myself so I can watch a crap box set on Netflix.”
Tom said: “I didn’t think you still had to bother with your mates after marriage. What’s the point of getting married then?”
