I go to dinner and movies and play online video games with my best friend ( a female). She helped me a lot in my life and helped me meet my wife. I helped her meet her husband too. Why is my wife against my outings with her and doing things like gym and video games? We are just friends!
I invite my wife to join us, but she refuses to.
I hugged my bff in front of her and my wife slapped me. I dropped my bff home at 4am after a night at the bar and her husband yelled at both of us, especially when my bff hugged me.
We sneak out to see each other and text/hang out with each other behind our spouses' backs.
Most Helpful Girl
I was with you until the last line.
You disrespecting your wife by sneaking out to see this other woman.
I get that you're just friends.
But when you feel the need to "hide" your actions that always looks suspicious.
If you're going to see your friend , then see her.
Don't hide or lie about it.
It leads your wife to think , what else is he lying about?
You make your friendship with this girl seem strictly platonic.
maybe it is.
Your wife seems like the jealous type.
The friendship seems to be weighing down your marriage.
You and your wife have a lot to talk about.
I believe that people shouldn't have to give up their friends just because they are married.
Your wife has to gain acceptance with this.
this may take her time.
You need to be there for her.
You need to be understanding of her feelings.
Maybe she has had experiences where men cheated on her, and she's still battered from that.
She has to learn to trust you.
lying and sneaking around however , will allow her to do the opposite of that.1
