    Hypothetically you have a friend who you are close to. You hang with this person at restaurants or you both take part in a mutual hobby on the weekend. When that friend becomes engaged you still hang out with them or are invited to attend functions with them and their fiance. You are even in the wedding. But once the wedding occurs they inform you that they can't hang out with you because you're single.

    I've seen this happen with many couples over the last 10 years.

    Is it healthy to NOT have friends outside of your marriage?
    Can married people still have single friends? Why does it seem as if some married folk cut off friendships with their single friends? Is because they don’t trust themselves, or is it something else?

    I think married people can have single friends, but it is up to the single friend to respect the marriage and not try to infringe upon the special time needed between spouses.
