Dear Fonseca

My husband and I attended his office Christmas party on Saturday. Towards the end of the evening, at the bar, his drunk boss walked over, put her arm around him, and passionately kissed him on the lips. Everyone gasped. She then looked at me and said she was going to borrow him for a few minutes. My husband and I argued on the way home. He said I have no reason to be mad and that he deserves a pass because it was his boss who kissed him and she was drunk. He says he has no one to complain to. I told him he should have pushed her away. He says doing that would have caused even more problems. Does he deserve a pass? Should I even be mad?
