Wife has joined a running club

My wife joined a running club. They go for runs at 5.30 pm and then go to the Club afterwards. She used to get home at about 8pm. The thing that is bothering me is it has now changed to 9.30pm the other week she got back at 11.20pm. I never go out like that during the week and it is starting to really irritate me. She is going to the Club prize giving and I know it will be another late night. She says dont worry I wont be going for the next six weeks as she has a runing injury. But that is not the point.
Should I go out late one night during the week to let her know what it feels like " a bit childish" .
I am never envited to her Club functions.
A bit of advice would be appreciated

Anyone running or clubbing till 9.30 pm, let alone 11.30 pm, is not benefitting their health.
Are the Club functions all closed to spouses ? Surely they must have at least some which are open - yes, do go along.
Good ideas, too, about joining the club at least as a Supporter and going along.

She is shagging, check her underwear when she gets back. Follow her and check out all her moves, go through cellphone &  sms messages to pick up a trend. Good luck.

Women are cheaters too. People always seem to criticise men the most and bad mouth us. If it were a guy doing that, he would certainly be bed hopping. So. Your wife is doing it with someone in the running club. If she had a kid at home, she would so want to come home to her family after her run. No mother stays out so often if she knows she has a kid at home. PS: No loving dad too. Join the running club and soon you''ll see, she want to quit. Then you know for sure whats going on. PS: Dont just join, run with her for a few months etc. and play the part/ role in supporting her. But be fair with yourself, if she is allowed this, you should be allowed to go out too any other night of the week

Ja Gigi , she has no respect for her husband and kids, all need something to do like a hobbie or sport but not at the expense of a spouse hurt and confusion, you also sound like one of those selfish woman
Like michael said if it was the other way around it would have been world war 3, She is selfish finish and klaar and only think aobut her own needs, young kids needs attention with homework etc,
I stick to my suggestion, take charge of your relationship with your wife Michael and talk to her, not asking her but telling her how you feel,
I took all this crap from my previous marraige , well Like Gigi said, I was treated badly and told him to kiss my-|-goodbuy, People will only treat you the way you allow it and you are allowing her to treat you this,way, dont be ignorant, why can you not attend all the functions, get a babysitter and go with .
Cheating happens all the time, Flirting ,chatting up etc,
Dont be blind.

If I were the wife in this instance, I would appreciae it if my husband joined in and spent the time with me.
Just do it. Makes this about you and your wife and not about any one of you.

Tell her you feel left out, and that its not fair. Otherwise find something to do with your time, like spend time with your friends, hobbies etc. Sometimes, people need some space to feel their individuality. Doesnt mean she is having sex!

She is enjoying the attention she gets at the club and has no respect for you or your marraige, You can go with to all these functions she is attending, dont trust the peace and take charge of your woman and your marraige, dont take her crap!!!

You are going to get one hell of a surprise!! She is most certainly hopping someone at the club!!! That is why she is now coming home later than usual!! And you must take a firm stand and let her know you are not happy with the fact that she goes out alone at night!!!!

Yes, join the Club even as a supporter, attend all the functions without exception, if she objects , or suddenly loses interest you know there is something fishy on the go, if she welcomes you, no problem !!

Join the club as a supporter. No need to be a runner.
The fact that you invite her to all functions and you now feel left out is not the issue here.
She obviously enjoys socialising at the Runners Club and you should not wait for an invitation, but join the club and socialise with her.

I cant run as i broke my heel a few years ago.
I ride bicycles no pressure on the heel.
Any function I have I envite her to attend.

This is what worked for me when hubby was in a runners club.

Since he was happiest when with he was part of the club, there was no way I could ask him to quit. So I decided to share his interests. During the week I would attend all the time trials, prize giving etc. On weekends we would travel to different towns to attend races. After the race he would be so exhausted I had to drive. I also became a massage specialist because he got a lot injuries.This allowed us to spend maximum time together and we grew even closer.

My point is, you are a team. When you work as a team you can face anything.

Two wrongs dont make a by you going out one night and coming home late is not going to resolve the issue.

Sit down with your wife and expalin how you are feeling. Or if you enjoy running discuss joining the club as well then you both can do something you enjoy together.

2 wrongs never make a rite.
Yes, good advice from Dw. Join the club too.
If kids are a problem, get a baby sitter.
