Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 10.04.56 PMOne of the hardest things as we start getting older and our friends start pairing up is having to spend time with people you don’t like, namely, your friend’s husband.

You may not think he’s funny as he loudly laughs at his own annoying jokes.  You may not like how he treats your significant other.  You may think he’s a know-it-all, dumb, effeminate, rude, insecure, overcompensating, or [insert here something your significant other is definitely not].

But guess what?  She picked him.  And if she’s happy with him, then keep your mouth shut and be happy for her.

Be glad that your friends all have different taste in men than you do, so you can all find your own favorite instead of fighting over the same guy.

When everything shakes out and almost all your friends are married, it can be surprising how many of the husbands you actually don’t like.

Here’s the solution: only spend time with her.

Don’t plan double dates, group picnics, vacations, barbecues or Superbowl parties.  Just don’t do it unless you can muster the patience and grace for a few hours to be kind and welcoming towards him with no eye-rolling behind his back.

Continue your relationship with her by telling her you want to spend quality time with her catching up over girl stuff.

And if you do plan group activities, don’t purposely not invite her and her husband when you’ve invited all your other mutual friends, because she will find out and be hurt.

So either only spend time with her, or start learning to like him and accept him too.
