My husband and I have been married for a little over 3 years. My best friend and I have been friends for over 5 years. Recently, I don’t know what’s gotten into my husband. He is so against me being friends with my best friend. His only excuse is that he doesn’t trust her. I think it’s because she’s single. He’s always trying to make me be friends with his friend’s wives. Which I have no problem with, but why should I have to give up my old friends? How do I handle this situation? I love my husband, but I just feel like if he had more of a valid reason, then maybe I would consider ending the friendship, but he has none. I would never put him in this situation. It’s so bad now that every time I hang out with her I come home to an argument or the silent treatment where we don’t talk for days. I don’t know what to do. I don’t have many friends, but this friend has been there for me when no one else has. Not even my mom, my family, or MY HUSBAND! Please shed some light on this situation. Say a prayer for me as well. I would hate to lose my husband over this, but I don’t want to lose a beautiful friendship either.
