I'm a widow, but not really sure of the question?
You mean friends away from the 'married couple' friends you had with your husband? The only friends I have now are the ones I went into the marriage with, girls I grew up with. Everyone I was 'friends' with during our marriage pretty much bailed not long after my dh passed away. I assumed they were our friends equally - turns out I was wrong. I was hurt for a long time by this, but at the same time, its better to experience this than have them hanging around out of some twisted sense of obligation.
I'm very sorry for your recent loss. My condolences.
