X is crossing the line and O needs to handle it correctly!!! I'm not saying O is having an affair. I'm saying X needs to be put in her place by O because it is very disrespectful to O's wife.

I often text clients and friends of the opposite sex. I am always very careful in what I say in those texts because I would not want the spouse to ever, ever get the wrong idea from ANYTHING I said. Whether I know her or not-- I find it disrespectful of both my spouse and his spouse.

If I'm remembering right, we don't know the gender of any of these people. Why assume the woman is at fault? Maybe there is no woman involved at all.
We do know the sexes. X is female and O is a male.

I blame them both. And yes, it is up to "O" to speak up and deal with it. And "X" should be classy enough and respectful enough to also refrain from addressing the other person as "love", "sweetie", or "hun."

It amazes me that people get their panties in a wad about kids and people calling them "sir" and "ma'am" but are them OK with calling others (of either sex) honey, sweetie, love, or darlin'. Ewww. *shivers*
