    I don’t see a problem with splitting up every once in a while. Obviously sometimes one of you will have scheduling conflicts, but I don’t think that should stop the other from hanging out with friends.

    @CherryWaves:  You could try to reschedule with the couple, and go hang out with your friends while your Darling Husband hangs out with his cousin, especially since his cousin’s baby is coming soon. Does that sound agreeable?

    Hope it works out! 🙂

    This definitely won’t be the first time that this happens, and while I am NOT an advocate of “keeping score” in marriage, I think perhaps it might not hurt to discuss with your Darling Husband how maybe you could “alternate” whose friends you hang out with when conflicts like this arise.

    I agree with a PP who said to reschedule with the newly engaged couple then split off and meet the other two.

    Is it possible you could have dinner with your old friends, then leave early so he could get together with his cousin? Reschedule with the friend who just got engged.

    We split ways all the time – it’s not ideal, but it happens and I’m not bothered by it.  

    IF you aren’t ok with it – there’s nothing wrong with telling the other two couples that you have plans, would love to see them, and make a date for a later time.
