How young ? Presumably though younger than him, she's old enough to take a job with him or his company. Older men, especially when they start feeling really old, sometimes become embarrassingly coy and flirty with younger women so as to try to feel more masculine, while risking looking more ridiculous.
If he really planned something nasty with her, would he flirt in such a way that you would see and notice it ? Is he that clumsy ?
IS the real problem, perhaps, more that he DOESN'T get flirty and have fun with you, as you naturally feel he should ? That he spends less time with you than you want, and gives you less attention than you wish for ?
Think, maybe, of encouraging him, as a Christmas gift, to join you in some sessions of marriage counselling, to enhance the relationship between you and the joy you are able to give each other.
