Wish I had a magic answer for this one, but I don't. Only that I can relate. My DH has asked me several times to cut my best guy pal out of my life and I've just told him the truth.
I will not.
We've never dated at all, he has nothing to worry about. We've known each other for almost 20 years, so as far as I'm concerned he's here to stay.
And even DH agrees that a woman that would cut someone out of their life like that is not the woman he fell in love with.
I've agreed to to totally honest with him (his ex wasn't and cheated) and I'll do all I can to deal with the fact that he will be jealous and try to be patient.
He doesn't like it, but just like I accept things about him, he has things that he needs to accept about me.
I guess that's just marriage.
