I've been thinking about getting married one day yet I still don't wanna give up some close female friends I have collected along the way. Can women accept her husband with a female...who happens to be a model...and single...and kinda like you?

If not..where is the trust at.

In my opinion, no. I mean, he can have acquaintances, but if a man is married and truly in love I dont see why he should wnt female friends to hang out with or be phone buddies with. That is disrespectful. Female acquaintances are fine but not hang out buddies or phone buddies

why is it cool for a man to have man friends but not female friends. I feel that if the women truly doesnt trust her husband, then they shouldn't have gotten married in the first place..ya feel me. If I've been knowing a girl for 8 years and known my wife for 2 years, she can't expect me to just let that friendship go.

there are certain rules of respect in marriage. talking on the phone with or hanging out with a girl who isnt related to u is disrespectful. end of story

Married women shouldnt have male hangout buddies either. Its disrespectful also. Its not about trust....its about marital respect. Thats why it important for men and women to discuss these kinds of things before getting married. lol. Im glad I have

I think its okay to have friends, but your wife/husband should be your best friend, and should place that friendship above all others

don't do it! Give up your female friends that is. Women have a way of trying to "suck" the life out of your very being.

What I mean by that is slowly (but assuredly) they will remove everyone from around you who either they 1) dislike, or 2) feel as though he OR she is competing for her time.

I'm all for the so-called "two" shall become one stuff, just not for losing individuality along the way.

And ladies, I'm all for healthy debate/discussion and love women dearly :)

Hello there! and I second that notion.
FRIENDS should be able to intermix with mates as well...as long as it's not one of those types of friends that can't come to my house, then I'm cool.

I need the definition of who you call a female friend? Is she a X? or a former friend with benefits? or just a friend in the true sense of the word? If you had s#x with her then no way can you continue being friends with her. Besides who has the time?

I'm going to say no, just like a married woman shouldn't have male friends.

I wouldn't even date a woman with a lot of male "friends", let alone marry one.

I completely disagree some of my closest friends are males and my bf is completely ok with it because he trusts me, and I trust him. If you are in a loving and trusting relationship then you should have no problem with your partner having a close friend of the opposite sex

Only the ugly ones lol and if you have some hot chicks as your friends they can only be around when she is around. And make sure you don't give your friends any attention either. lol

For the ladies...

Only men that are lazy, shorter than you, and fatter (like H U G E ) can be your friends. If they have high paying jobs and they're single... leave them alone don't talk to them anymore. And if they HAVE to be around for whatever reason your man better be there. And you can't give your friend any attention either.

lol

If your married the only friends you need to have are your in-laws, your spouse nieces and other cousins that are kids.
