I probably didn’t explain well. The husband and I tell each other about our days. But let’s say he’s at work and decides to eat lunch with a friend. He doesn’t text or call or e—mail prior to say “I’m going out with a friend for lunch. I’ll be an hour.”

Another example – he has an activity every Sunday in the burbs. If a friend asked me to brunch Sunday morning after he has left, I wouldn’t contact him first and check in. I’d only tell him if I knew I wouldn’t be home around the time he usually comes home so he doesn’t worry. Sure, I’d tell him later, but I wouldn’t check in prior.

It sounds like this dude wants the LW to check in before doing anything. She doesn’t need to do that. That’s not normal.
