Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

Could you stay friends with a homewrecker?

 So I'm obviously taking stock of my friends lately and reevaluating who I still want to keep in touch with after all these years and one of them I really think I'm going to cut ties with. She's in a relationship with a married man who she knew was married but actively pursued him until she caught him and pushed for him to divorce his wife. The divorce isn't final yet but she broke up a 10yr marriage with 3 kids involved and seems pretty proud of that fact.

I don't see how it's a bragging point that she purposefully destroyed a family like that and I think karma will come back to bite her in the ass. With her blase' attitude about marriage and my deep convictions regarding my vows, I just feel like we're pretty far apart on a very fundamental level and I don't think I can remain friends with her knowing what I know about her now. What about you? Could you stay friends with a homewrecker like this?

I had a girlfriend who did something similar.

I stayed friends with her but I'll always keep her at arms distance and watch my back.

She's always been that kind of person but now it just seems clearer that ever.

honestly, no. Your friend shows no remorse for hurting another women and three children? That isn't someone I would stay friends with.

I agree. It's too much drama. Something I don't want or need.

Somebody like this definitely not.  I've been thinking lately about some of my acquaintances and think that maybe I might be too picky though. lol  I guess that's why they are acquaintances and not friends for a reason. lol

No I don't think I could trust her around my friends husbands are mine and that would be a big issue.

How she chooses to live her life has nothing to do with me. That man had the choice she didn't hold him at gun point. I would still be friends but I would keep my eyes and ears open. To end a friendship over her choice is like saying no one can ever screw up or have diffrent opinions

I have a cousin who broke up a marriage. She slept with another woman's husband and got pregnant and broke up their marriage... I lost a huge amount of respect for her and no longer feel comfortable around her, so I guess my answer is No.

Eh idk. I have a friend who had an affair with a married guy he didn't have kids though. He ended up leaving his wife for her, she felt guilty and embarrassed but she loved him. I overlooked it but that's a different situation than your friend.
