  • Stop going out with them, and if/when they ask why, tell them the truth. Or, if for some reason you can't get out of going out with them, I would get up and leave when they fight. When they ask you where you're going, tell them you're leaving because you are uncomfortable with their arguing.

  • I would just quit going out with them and when asked why, I would just be honest. If they are truly friends, they will understand why you don't want to be around them.

  • Maybe they just don't realize they ARE fighting. Just like I would suggest to anyone else who's having marital problems, sit down and chat with at least her, and maybe your husband chat with him, about things. Be tactful and civilized, maybe find out why they fight so much.

  • I just wouldn't hang out with them anymore. You don't need to be around that.

  • Some couples use fighting as foreplay. it sucks for the ones around them but they enjoy it. just have a talk with them

  • I second what Jadesmom said. Simply stop making dates with them & if confronted with why tell them the truth. Of course I'd tell them in a nice way & even give examples of times you have felt awkward with them etc. Remember that friendships dont always last forever so if something happens its a normal part of life, friends will come & go in your lifetime. Dont beat yourself up over any of it though, you know. Good Luck.

  • Stop socializing with them. If they ask why be honest. It is not comfortable being around or with people who bicker and fight.
