My friend and I had a bit of a falling out a little over a year ago. I emailed her for the first time since then about two weeks ago. We've been in regular contact since then.
She just revealed that her husband, to whom she's been married since June, has been verbally and physically abusive and has cheated on her at least three times. She filed for divorce not long before I emailed her.
I feel terrible for how things turned out. What do I say to her? I feel like I should have been there for her.

doesn't matter what you could have, should have, would have done. You did not know what was going on and had a falling out. Concentrate on what you can do now. I am going through a divorce now, no one knew I had problems at home. I know some feel bad they couldn't "be there" for me. But they are now, and that is what you can do for her. Just listen, only give advice if she asks or appears to ask for it. Some want to give me advice, and honestly I know it is out of caring/love. However everyone reacts to things differntly so you can only guide really.0
