Dear Fonseca,

I was out with my wife the other night when another man walked up and said he noticed her from across the room so he wanted to come over and tell her that she is beautiful. My wife thanked him and smiled. We got into an argument on the way home. I told her that she should not have accepted the compliment, but rather told the man that she is married. She said she was just being polite. My wife said the compliment made her light up inside. She says there is nothing wrong with accepting a compliment from another man even if a woman is married. We are now giving each other the cold shoulder. Who's right... me or my wife? Should she have accepted the compliment?
