Do you try to be frIends with your husband' s friends' wives?

Posted by   + Show Post
Just because your husband's friend has a wife, do you try to be friends with her?

My husband doesn't need to friends with my friends husbands.
IDK. I just decided to let the ball drop with a "friend" like this. We never got along and it was made really clear we were only trying out of respect for our men, not each other. I'm just over it.
Who says I need to try to be friends with someone just by association? Is that the social norm and I'm just weird?

Most of them aren't married or anything so there are no wives to speak of really.

My husband doesn't have friends with wives. All of DHs friends are immature and don't even have girlfriends. Most also live at home with mommy and daddy.

Not friends, most times. Most stay acquaintances, or nothing to me at all.

I'm always cordial. If we hit it off cool but if we just don't vibe then so be it.

Well, it takes both parties to be able to get along.  I would at least remain friendly, if not friends.  Try to find commonalities so that when the four of you get together, you already have some things in mind that you can talk with her about that the two of you have in common.

My boyfriend doesn't know anyone who is married. Not that he ever sees socially, anyhow.

Girlfriends, sometimes. I try. Some of them are total idiots. Lol.

My hubby does not hang out with his work friends much at all. When they do it is late after work and they have dinner together. But if he did he would not make me be friends with his friends wives. Just like I don't make he be friends with my girl friends hubby's.
