Dear Abby: I have been going to a small community building near where I live to sing karaoke. I love going there because no alcohol is served, everyone acts like family, and I can take my kids and grandkids. My husband doesn’t go because he has other stress relievers and we have different interests. He knows some of the people there and doesn’t mind me going with my best friend.
I love my husband very much. I am not “looking for love.” However, last month, the DJ’s wife was waiting for me and said she didn’t appreciate my singing with her husband (she never comes, either) and told me to stop leaving comments on his Facebook page.
I tried to explain that I thought he was my friend, but she wasn’t having it. She wanted to start trouble and ruin what happiness we all have. I thought about not going back, but I love the singing.
I haven’t done anything wrong or said anything inappropriate. My friends at karaoke want me back, and my husband says I should go. I have been so down about this. There’s no other place around where they don’t serve alcohol. Please help me.

@text1_boldintro\::Dear Innocent and Hurt: Although your relationship with the DJ is innocent, it appears he has a troubled marriage. If he doesn’t know about the incident with his wife, then you should tell him.
The next couple of times you visit the community building to sing, ask your husband to please come with you. And stop leaving messages on the Facebook page.
