Can married men have female friends?
As readers offer Krista advice, another question emerges: can married men have female friends? Ideally, they say, the members of a couple should be able to maintain individual friendships with the opposite sex, but in reality, a friendship like the one Krista’s husband is developing is often a slippery slope.
When is it time to reassess your relationship with female friends?
It’s more a question of degree — if your dearest and best friend is a woman who isn’t your wife, then it’s clearly time to reassess. Tread cautiously when relating to female friends and acquaintances.
How can I convince my husband to be friends with women?
Include one another in the friendship. Many readers believe that if your husband wants to cultivate a friendship with a woman, whether a colleague or someone from his past, he should invite you and the woman’s spouse (if she has one) to dinner or into the circle of friendship, too. This kind of transparency makes everyone more comfortable.
Should I tell my wife that I don’t have male friends?
You can’t insist on her not having male friends, if she’s understanding of your friendships with other women. Try to understand what this friendship is about too, before jumping to any conclusions. 4) Don’t hide anything from your wife. “Never lie about the time you spend with your friend,” said life coach Jessica Sabatini via CNN.
Should a married man be hanging out with another woman?
Lisa P. agrees, but for different reasons: “I don’t think a married man should be hanging out with another girl or woman even if they are supposedly ‘just friends.’ He should be home with his family. If his priorities are elsewhere and not with you and your family, then you should be questioning the marriage.”
Are You making inappropriate friendships when you’re married?
Inappropriate friendships when we’re married often happen when we haven’t discussed limits on what we can and cannot share with opposite gender friends. When friends start sharing more with each other than with their spouse, that is not good for the friendship. It can be deadly for the marriage.
