F0ucault Posted June 15, 2017 Share Posted June 15, 2017 Hi there. I have been supporting a male platonic friend whose wife claimed she has wanted a divorce/separation for at least three months. There are several children, and she initially wanted to leave them all with her husband. Her husband (my friend) was in crisis and reached out for support a few weeks ago. I tried my best to support him (platonically) and was relieved that he seemed to be more stable and independent, ready to take on being a single dad. We have had absolutely no prior sexual/etc relationships, and he was truly my work colleague/friend. Fast forward a few days, his wife noticed this change in him. He had become more independent, and had asked her to formulate a plan for how to divide the assets/etc for the separation she had been pushing for. She asked if there were anyone else, and he said he had talked to me. She then immediately proclaimed that she was still in love with him (for the first time in years) and that she didn't want the divorce/separation she had fought for for six months, dragging him back into committing to the relationship. As a result, he has been instructed to not speak to his female friends by his wife. I obliged but feel pretty sad about the entire situation. I feel like I lost a friend, a colleague (work related) and am generally quite disheartened to have supported my friend to this point only to have his wife turn his life upside down (again). Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated. I'm finding this very hard to process and am very concerned about my friend. Link to comment
