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?

It is. We don't really have any friends outside of our church, so everyone is nice.

That would be nice.

I don't have to "try". We are all friends, we just get along.

My DH has a best friend that is married.  I am very down to earth, positive, love my husband kind of person.  She is the exact opposite.  She is FAKE, complains constantly, and hates her husband.  I don't even know if she has any other friends.  So yes I am friends with her, but it is for my husband.

I do because DH tries with my friend's husbands. We also respect the fact that certain people don't mesh so we limit couple things with those people.

I try to avoid as many social encounter as possible. Dh is very social though and I tell him he is more than welcome to go out and have a great time with his friends. He understands that I don't like people in general and he doesn't make me come along. I like my family and that's about it. Anyone outside of that is just work.

Yes I have tried, because they are all my husbands HS friends also.  So they have known my husband longer.

we are friendly, chat, but that is all.

Not really friends, but I'd make the extra effort to get along with the wives.

Nope, mainly because we do not see people. Like he does not go any where... I do not really either.

The only friends dh hangs out with, are my friend's husbands. He might go see a movie with a guy from Sunday school, or a friend who is divorced from one of my friends. We hang out with them separately.
