Maybe you need to talk to him about why he is getting upset. Could it be because you are giving your friend more attention that him?

If you seem to be more excited to be around your friend than your husband I could see that causing issues even if the friend was female. If you spend a lot of time with the friend your husband could feel that time with the friend is more important than time with your family. Not all jealousy is about the potential for sex. I wouldn't necessarily ditch the firend, but you should listen to what your husband has to say. If your husband is feeling slighted or rejected in some way due to the time or quality of interaction you have with your friend, then it would be wise to lessen the interaction and try to focus on your husband more.
