Re: Wife is behaving weird. Need some input
My W is Korean, and they have an old saying there: "When the wives get together, the dishes will break at home". Perhaps she and her friend are in a "My H is a bigger jackass than yours is" competition, or her friend is re-introducing her to the single party girl lifestyle. Either way, this friend is toxic.
Another possibility: perhaps this friend knows something about your W from her past, before she met you...something that she is deeply ashamed of. Maybe she doesn't want you to meet this friend, for fear that she will let the cat out of the bag?
