  • I can't see a problem with it really. I've always had more guy friends than female friends. I don't think that getting married means you should have to do anything different involving your friends.

  • most of my friends are guys. It can be hard after you are married, but I won't cut them out of my life if I know that we are only 'just friends'

  • Depends on what you are doing with that guy friend and what you're talking about with that guy friend. Definitely don't be spending more time with the guy friend than dh. Preferably hang out with guy friend in dh's presence. Maybe youwill all be friends together and guy friend will get a wife and you'll have a couple to vacation with and eat out and such.

  • I guess it depends on the kind of relationship you have with the guy friends. Most of my guy friends are mutual friends between my fiance and I, that I only see or talk to on facebook or when we are all out together. I think that its not a problem if your husband is completely comfortable with the friend and doesn't mind how/when you communicate with the friend. But if it is causing rifts in the relationship, then I think husband takes priority over the friend in that situation and you shouldn't continue whatever it is that is making him uncomfortable.

  • I don't see a problem with it. I don't have a lot of guy friends, but I have one that my husband and I are close to. There was no shortage of people to tell me it didn't look right when I'd hang out with him alone. It didn't matter. My husband knew who I was with and had no problems with it even when he was offshore working. It all depends on the level of trust in your relationship. What other people outside of your relationship say has no bearing on your relationship.

  • Boundaries are the key. I have guy friends that I LOVE, but once I got married the relationships changed. Not for the worse, just different. The friends must respect your married relationship.

  • I have a lot of guy friends....I dont see why that i should not talk to them or hang out with them just because i am married....i mean im just married not cut off from the world...If my husband asks me not to talk to a certan person because he does not trust or like them then i will slowly cut contact but thats all
