Women In Consulting

My husband has a few private club memberships (soho house, casa tua, one in London), he’s ok referring / recommending ppl he barely knows & perceives as ‘cool’ but won’t refer me. Says its liability

... You said husband, right? Why would your own husband not want you to be a member at the same clubs as him?

So, soho house I know rarely takes consultants, corporate type people! My boyfriend has soho and has tried to refer me. Difference is, he takes me with him all of the time, if he isn’t even taking you, shady AF

Can I just say how ridiculous it is that soho house won’t take consultants 🙄 it’s so lazy defining someone’s personality by their job.

There are lots of husband and wife couples at private clubs. The soho house in West Hollywood is even known for being full of families with children on weekends. If he will refer other women but not you then maybe you should tell him to marry one of those women instead. This is your life partner that should want to experience life with you and not without you. It seems like this will increase your time apart, especially if he's a member at multiple clubs and you don't get to spend time with him at any of them.

He wants a space that is just his, I’m guessing.

He says it risks his membership referring his wife, also because I work at such a corporate company which doesn’t align with these clubs business models. I’m offended he’ll refer some random girl who he thinks is artsy or a ‘model’ but not his wife, but I’m so sick of arguing over it especially since it’s such a first world problem

Not a first world problem. A first rate marriage problem. I’d flip a shit

It sounds like he has already referred another woman.

Uh... he doesn’t want you there because he is doing something he likely doesn’t want you to know about.

Wait, the most important is - does he invite you to those places or does he go alone? Side note: Those places have membership guidelines and are geared towards certain industries, Soho house doesn’t accept finance/consultants/corporate type folks.

That explains only one of the multiple memberships he refuses to refer her to.

He doesn't want you there... he probably trolls the clubs as a 'single' man lol

I don't know, if he's taken you there before he probably isn't known as a single guy there as some here suggest? Maybe he just wants something to be "his own"? I know the desire to exclude stuff from sharing in a marriage isn't widely accepted here but I wouldn't jump to conclusions such as that he's cheating straight away
