  • I think you handled it fine. It is hard to say hey cut her out completely but if he is only hanging out with her in a group and not making her the focus of his attention, then problem solved. You can't disrupt his life to much because he wasn't encouraging it, just feel lucky that you got a hot hubby! I think I would have done about the same in that situation.

  • i would've said, 'well, you've known him longer than i-obviously, there's a reason it didn't happen.' i wouldn't be jealous of a relationship they've had a long time. its not like it just started, after you came along. friends are friends, and they've known each other a quite a while, i guess, from what you said. i wouldn't try to make him feel nervous or guilty for talking to her, or any other woman, though. that's kinda high-schoolish, don't ya think?

  • I've been in a similar situation. I would just recommend to keep it superficial with her. Don't be rude, don't be overly nice. If she ever asks you anything like "whats your deal" or anything along those lines, you have a right to tell her that her comment made you feel uncomfortable. If she has even the smallest brain, she should understand why her comment was just plain rude & inappropriate.

  • She has no respect for you or your DH then she has no respect for herself. I would have slaped her face(dumb bitch). I think that is very disrespectful of her...

  • You handled it pretty good just keep it the way it is, If there is any way he can not see her that is even better. They don't need to be friends any longer he is with you and a child.
    And if they had a child together before you that would be the only reason they should be talking. GL You better watch her.

  • You said she was drunk. So you did the exactly right thing. Say thanks and let it go. Why push the issue when she's drunk? Why push the issue at all. Take it as a compliment that you have him and move on.

  • Jealous bitches are always going to say things like that. Her being drunk doesn't excuse it. She probably wouldn't have said it TO YOU if she weren't drunk. Its good that you said what you did, because its impossible to argue/deal with someone who's drunk. As for DH, he should know that what she said was inappropriate and support your decision to distance yourselves from her. I wouldn't give a shit if he didn't like it...if you don't trust or like the woman then your HUSBAND should respect that and not want to be around her. If DH didn't like/trust a male friend of yours, I'm sure you'd be expected to distance yourself or stop communicating with him as a matter of respect for DH. There is no room in a marriage for a friend that makes either spouse uncomfortable.

  • My group of friends is much like your husbands, we're very tight, and there are only a few of us women. We've all had to work over time to prove ourselves to our friends' SO because it can be threatening. It's the same way my male friends have had to work to show my husband that everything is platonic. It can be a tough situation, especially for a new girlfriend, to come into this group where any other woman knows more about her boyfriend than she does. I can say I would have NEVER made a comment like that woman did to you, that goes against any common sense or respect she has for your husband. If she respects your husband as her friend, she needs to respect you as the person he chooses to be with. I would let it go as it is, he's being good, even though she was an idiot.
