Do you think this type of relationship is normal?

I know a middle age woman and man are together all the time. They go out to eat and do shopping together but the bills are on Dutch as far as we can see. They go to England and Australia for holidays together every two years. They celebrate their birthday together. Anyway, people always see them together and thought they are a couple. However, the woman in fact has been marrying for more than thirty years and has not divorced yet. When we question her, she just say her husband likes to do things on his own and doesn’t mind she is with someone else all the time. Do you think this type of relationship is normal? If you were this woman/her husband, would you accept your other half going out with someone else constantly?

I do not see this as normal, however it might work for the 3 of them. Maybe they are just close friends and nothing more, or maybe the marriage is just something they hold on to even though they have moved on with their separate lives..

My personal opinion - while I may not agree, it is not for me (or anyone else, honestly) to judge. What they do in their lives is something they have to live with - and as it doesn't affect anyone outside of their homes, what does it matter? Sorry - but I have seen and heard too many people say they are Christians, yet they are quick to judge others ... a true Christian knows there is Only 1 judge.

True, I don't think she is a good example or idol for all the young couples.
