Unhappy Husband spends more time with a guy friend than he does with me

I've been married for almost 3 months now. My husband and I have a mutual friend whom I met while in college. They met threw me.

Lately these two have been spending all their time together. I hardly see or talk to my husband because he is either chatting with him on Facebook and bbm, on the phone with him or actually with him. For the past few days I've been terribly sick with flu, but that doesn't seem to matter. He still goes out and doesn't seem too worried about me.
I'm at my wits end here. I don't want to be a nagging wife and I do want my hubby to have friends and have his own life but this is just overkill. I feel like I'm being tossed aside in favour of this friend. To be honest, I feel like the friend's the wife and not me. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is this friend married or dating? Do you go on "double dates" or is your husband always out with this friend alone?

What are they talking about on the phone?

Re: Husband spends more time with a guy friend than he does with me

Funny thing is I can't see two guys spending time talking on the phone. Aside from a brother who lives out of state, my main goal when talking on the phone with a guy is just to get to the point and get off the phone. Most talking done in bro code. He could be my best friend of all time who I could hang with all the time ... and I still wouldn't want to stay on the phone. It's kind of like shopping to me ... know what you want ahead of time, get in, get out.

Now, before marriage, I would stay on the phone for a woman ... for hours.

You'll just need to talk to him about it.

Doesn't sound like he's getting the whole married thing yet. He can have time with his friend but you come first.
