Single Friends Causing Problems.
So here's my story. I have been married for one year this month. My wifes best friend is the one who originally set us up. I used to be friends with her as well. Now I feel the relationship between my wife and her best friend is impeding on our relationship.
I have even been recieving e-mails from a marriage counselor to see if I may be able to make myself happier in the situation. One of the e-mails hit the nail on the head. It said my wife was "emotionally unfaithful." The situation it described matched my situation exactly. Basically it stated that the relationship with the best friend (who is single by the way) can interfere with the emotional bonding between a married couple because the wife is already getting all the emotional support she needs from the friend. When the friend is there EVERYDAY, my wife does not need to laugh and giggle and have a general good time with me. Instead she gets those needs fulfilled from the friend. Even though there is no physical relationship, the amount of time they spend together and talk to each other makes me feel like I am being cheated on.
We have been fighting alot, and it has usually has something to do with this particular friend. When I brought it up to my wife, she yelled at me like I was trying to tell her who she could and could not be friends with. Thats not the case at all. I don't care if they are still friends, but when she talks to her friend more than she talks to me, it interferes with us growing closer in our relationship. I am to the point where I am ready to say f#*k it and just leave. When they hang out, they often go to the party bars and stay out until 2:30 in the morning.
Also, this friend is well over 30 and has never been in a relationship. She uses her relationship with my wife to satisfy all her emotional needs.
Ever since I mentioned the problem to my wife (who eventually acknowledged the problem) it has gotten worse not better. I feel like if I said to my wife, "it's either her or me," my wife would choose her! Can you believe that. But I KNOW SHE WOULD. I feel that if this single friend got off her lazy butt and moved out of her parents house and found a boyfriend, things would get better. But she probably will never get a boyfriend and never move out.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
