Q: Before I was married, all of my friends were male. I don’t know – I just connect with the better. That is how my husband and I met. Now that we are married, he has an issue with my guy friends. His point of view – as long as he doesn’t know they exist, I can have them in my life. That just doesn’t seem right to me. I try to honor him by making sure all my friends are female but I don’t know if he is in the wrong telling me to hide it or if I should be ashamed for considering male friends?
A: I can only imagine the frustration and confusion this must be causing. On one hand, you want to be open, honest, and connected with your husband while expressing the full authenticity of who you are and what makes you comfortable. On the other hand, your desire to be fully open is being met by a request to remain closed off in one aspect of your life.
