Absolutely! Although it depends WHY they don’t like him..if he’s a cheater, rude, etc. If there isn’t anything wrong with the way he treats you & he makes you over the moon happy, then I don’t believe friends have any business in the equation.

It wouldn’t concern me in the slightest as long as he treats me right ๐Ÿ™‚ and again if they couldn’t be civil (if they didnt like him) I’d prob find new friends as if they couldn’t respect my choice by being civil they probably aren’t really friends!

i say this as I have a friend (not a close one) who is engaged to a guy that just puts me on edge… I am civil I will talk to him if he’s there BUT I don’t go out of my way to invite him/them to places and I generally don’t linger in a convo – short and sweet and then move on… I think that is the most adult way to deal with things because I know I won’t like everyone but I CAN be civil and try not to show it!

ETA: as far as I am aware none of my friends have an issue with my DH thou but that could be because they have adopted my method of dealing hehe

Probably not but then I regard my friends very highly and value their opinion and I don’t believe that they would not like someone without a reason. So if they said he was a douche bag then I would probably take a step back and evaluate him from an outsiders eyes.

@esplanfreedom:  

Sure they aren’t the ones marrying him, who cares if they think he’s only okay?  But, if they thought he was horribly evil then I’d have to think about it.

I’m not sure. Why don’t they like him? That’s really important.

If it’s something everyone can see but me then that would be a big problem. I would have to give it some serious thought.

If it’s something I understand and accept – like that my friends like to party and SO likes to stay at home, I think it’s ok.
