    Your "wife's boyfriend?"   Thanksgiving is going to be interesting this year.

      Sounds like he's in an open marriage, as he is obviously OK with his wife seeing another guy.

    Bring your own burger.  He probably won't notice as he will be too busy playing with your wife's boobs.

    By assertively saying, 'I am allergic to seafood'. No harm, just honesty about your needs.

    Since you know in advance that somebody is going to have you in their home for dinner who plans to serve Seafood, it's best to let them know before you go that you are allergic to Seafood. That way they can make other plans for their menu to accommodate you.

    Or, you can go over there with your wife and eat the seafood while they watch you choke and die so they can carry on with their plans after she inherits your estate.

      He and his wife are obviously in an open marriage which means they've given each other permission to see other people. So she's seeing another guy and he is obviously cool with that.

    You do not have to be polite, you just say " sorry but i cannot eat seafood" you have to be up front about it otherwise you will have a plate of seafood in front of you!

    There is this thing called a telephone. Give him a call and tell him yourself.

    Better let him know now, rather than after you get there. That way he can arrange to prepare an alternate main dish for you. It might not be very fancy, though (boxed macaroni and cheese?).

    Why hasn't your wife told him?

    Surely your wife has told him.  Clearly she's toying with you.
