Wondering if anyone has any input that could help me, or just help me realize I am not alone in this. My husband and I are 2+ years post his affair and are doing very well, arguably better than before the A in many ways. But one thing is still different. A few of my friends know what happened and refuse to forgive him. They don't want to hang out anymore with him especially, which means me as well by extension. They cannot believe I am still with him after what he did to me. The thing is, I went through plenty of pain when the A was happening. Now, the pain continues in these other ways...is it their business? Are they just trying to protect me and in turn are hurting me? I don't want to really confront them on this. I am sick and tired of talking about the A and about how it is simply how we had to grow as a couple - not the best way I know, but it is how it happened for us unfortunately. Do I find new friends? Wait it out? Give up on them entirely?
