I’m not going to lie. My husband has a friend that I cannot stand.
The sight of him makes my blood boil, and I know the feeling is mutual. As a matter of fact, he warned my husband not to marry me.
It’s important that we have friends that support our relationship. And, once I explained that to my husband (in no uncertain terms), he agreed, and this friend is no longer a part of his life.
The longer we’re married, the more I realize that I don’t really have to like his friends, and he doesn’t really have to like mine. As long as everyone is respectful of our relationship (and to each other), it doesn’t matter if we’re all buddy-buddy.
I mean, our interests are very different. I don’t need friends that can play video games. And he doesn’t need friends that can talk about Fifty Shades of Grey.
I hit the mattresses of Facebook to see how other couples felt. You guys had a lot to say! And the opinions were all over the place.
Is it important to be friends with your lover’s friends?
What do you think, can we have separate sets of friends and still have happy love lives?
