Why Would my Spouse Flirt in Front of Me?

People flirt for many different reasons.

Some people are just more naturally outgoing, sometimes flirting is driven by one’s sexual desire, and sometimes it is driven by other goals. For more details, please see the following ask an expert response which deals with this topic.

And it also helps to keep in mind that a spouse or partner might flirt in an attempt to create jealousy. When people feel jealous, rather than deal with such feelings directly, sometimes people try to make their partner’s feel the same way (see overcoming jealousy).

For the most part, the best way to deal with a flirtatious spouse is to talk about the issue directly in non-confrontational manner (see talk about problems).
