A friend of mine is getting a divorce, and she’s part of a big group of friends that Darling Husband has known since high school. Everyone is tight knit, so naturally sides were taken, and because my friend did the leaving, most people sided with her soon to be ex-husband. I’m the only one who has, through everything, stayed impartial and opted to support her, no matter what she chooses to do.
Why? It’s none of my business how she lives her life. As long as she’s happy, then I’m happy for her. (Last I checked, that’s what a friend is)
The other important thing to know is that I work for a very reputable jeweler in the area, and she recently told me she and her new boyfriend want to come in to look as some things, and she wants to work with me. Now, I’ll admit that they haven’t been together very long, her divorce isn’t even close to being final, and if it were me I would think it’s a little fast, but again, it is none of my business how they choose to live their lives.
The issue is that Darling Husband is angry with me for agreeing to help her. He thinks that I should refuse, not b/c I disaprove, but b/c our other friends might get mad at me for supporting my friend’s choices.
Maybe I’m wrong, but it is MY JOB to sell jewelry. If my friend wants to buy a ring and I don’t sell it to her, someone else will.
If you were in this situation, how would you handle it?
