My husband and her husband have beens friends since before they got married. Got together every once in a while to let our kids play together and just mostly talk about parenting. Then, at a party at her home, she ended up confiding in me about some issues she was having in her marriage and with her husband's family. We had a few more intimate conversations before she suddenly changed her interactions with me. I figured she needed time to work some things out in her life, but we checked in every now and again to see how things were. It eventually turned into a one-sided effort on my part, so I asked her if I had done something wrong. That's when she told me that she didn't feel comfortable being friends with me because I had friends and family that talk regularly to her husband's family. So, basically she doesn't trust me to keep my mouth shut. What am I supposed to do with that situation?

You didn't say that she said you can't be friends. Invite them and keep being nice. Avoid intimate conversations.

if your husband is still friends with her husband, I think it would be hard not to invite them, but at the same time it would be uncomfortable to have her there after what she said to you. I wouldnt invite her if it was for me and I will tell my husband why if he asked me.
