I believe there were some relatively minor issues that irritated my wife over time and she latched onto a few things and decided never to speak to this woman again. This woman handled it badly and said some nasty things on Facebook etc. etc. Now my wife says this was unforgivable, so the relationship festered even further..
I go along with the not talking thing to be loyal. It's easy to do because the friendship was primarily between the two wives. However, we have kids that see each other at soccer. This is awkward. On top of that, I feel absolutely terrible about the whole thing. I don't believe this woman deserves this treatment and I feel half responsible for causing her such pain. I cannot get angry or enraged about whatever it is she's done because it all seems so trivial.
I've talked to my wife about it but she says I should stick by her. That's what I'm doing - but I don't agree with any of it. What do I do?
Stick by your wife. There may be more to this than you know. Even if not stand by her. Your wife will see this as a betrayal otherwise.
Stay out of the women's drama.
