My husband went to another town about 7 hours away to sell his boat. Along the way he picked up a 24 year old female hitchhiker. He is 59.he ended up asking her to go to dinner with him and one of her friends met them there. he paid for the whole dinner. he took around 4 pics of this girl and her friend and traded phone numbers with her. the next morning she called him and they talked for at least 15 minutes.

I don't think there was anything physical going on but, I think this is inappropriate. He wont delete her number or pictures. he says they are just friends and is really mad at me for not understanding.

Am I wrong to think this is inappropriate? Or is he wrong for having pictures of her, and taking her to dinner and trading phone numbers with her?

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
