Re: Husband's female friend
I get your concerns about this bossy woman in your life, particularly when your husband insists on what a good friend she is (to him).
After this thread, now you know to be clear on how she treats you and your husband. Otherwise, mentioning her behavior towards others will only get you framed as busybody.
If I were in your position, I would share your concern. Has your husband ever used "But my friend says...." as a justification to do something, particularly when it goes against what you want? Has your husband ever chided you for not being to this woman?
If I were in your position, I would
1. Redirect your social efforts to widen your social circles
2. Whenever you can avoid this woman, (ie not invite her and yes, your husband's friend somewhere), I would do it
3. Encourage your husband to go out with his friend without her (but make sure it is without her)
4. think of some all purpose returns so that when she does become bossy, you can verbally confront it. For example, "and your point is......." (said in a friendly tone of course), might slow her bossiness down.
