So really, there's no problem about having friends of the opposite sex as long as they are not interferring in the status of your marital life.
I agree with the above. The problem here though is that we never know when a "friend" is going to jump the track and follow their own rules. I used to think that everyone in a situation would behave properly. I have been sorely disappointed. I might allow my SO to have this or that female friend, but these days, the first late night text, inappropriate hug or moment when I am the last to know about something and.......no I am gone. If my SO thinks that he can get his needs met by his female friends, then I am gone.
