I haven't read any posts from James' wife. I suspect the majority of attached sailnetters only have one spouse on here.
Still sore about the "girls" remark (you spent a lot of effort defending yourself, which reveals how seriously you took it)?
It is difficult for me to relate to your point because I would never expose private matters like marital relations on a public forum, so I can't imagine how someone who has violated such a basic trust issue would convince his or her spouse to jump in and participate, as useful as it might be.
Some of the screen names appear to be joint/couple names, i.e. chrisncate, so it is possible a disaffected spouse might jump in on one of these discussions.
Perhaps you have some experience in this area you would like to share?
