Good morning, a little background first. My husband and I started learning to dance together 8 years ago. We are now of a reasonable standard. I know I am lucky to have a male partner, if you don’t, you either have be be prepared to dance with a woman or learn the male steps.
Last week our dance teacher said he was starting a new beginners class very close to our home and I suggested to my husband that we go to practice. Next thing is know he rushes off to speak to dance teacher muttering about helping at the class.
Sunday I get a text from our dance teacher asking if my husband was still willing to help out. He replied yes. Monday evening comes and my husband is surprised that I get out my dance shoes and that I am going with him. I reminded him it was me who suggested that we go to the class to practice. Get to the venue and dance teacher surprised to see me. Dance teacher introduces my husband to a new dancer as her new partner. It clearly appears to me that I won’t be practicing anything unless on my own. I went home.
I later spoke to my husband and said you do know that you will be going dancing every week for at least the next year with this woman. My husband says no, no, it’s a one off. I replied I don’t think our dance teacher thinks that, he thinks you are going to dance with this new woman every week. My husband has not clarified with the dance teacher this yet, but I did with another teacher.
I am not happy. I won’t be getting the practice. And despite what will be denied my husband will be building a relationship with another woman, bodies touching, getting to know one another, all this is necessary in dancing if you want to dance properly. My husband thinks this is all okay (and so it seems our dance teacher).
Am I be unreasonable not to want my husband to do this? Of course I realise the other woman will be without a dance partner. But all to often in my opinion one thing can lead to another no matter how people try not to let anything happen.
