My best friend’s husband is a total jerk and my husband and I can’t stand him. The problem is that I can’t get to see my friend without her husband tagging along.
Queenie, how do I keep my friendship with her but without him?—Disgusted friend
Do not invite your friend to your home, as you can be sure hubby will “tag along.” Instead, plan a “girls day (or night) out” filled with activities that hubby would hate or at which he would not be welcome. And make sure he knows that your husband also is not included, so that hubby will be less inclined to butt in (I hope).
