Do you always make jokes at the expense of your spouse in front of their friends? Or, do you always say taunting things to your husband/wife in the presence of their pals? If yes, then you are definitely not leaving a good impression in front of your spouse’s friends. And chances are, they might not like you for how you treat your spouse or your relationship.
In fact, somewhere deep down they empathise with their dear friend, for being treated like this by you. They might talk openly about your behaviour to your spouse, but might not share their views with you. And not only this, there are a few other things as well that your spouse’s friends will never tell you. Wondering, what are they? Then read on to know them.
You knowingly demean your spouse in front of his/her pals and pretend every time that it was just a mistake by saying, “Oh, so sorry I did not mean to hurt you. It was just a mistake.” And then again, you end up doing the same thing. So, why not think twice before you say something to your spouse in front of their dear friends!
It is very rude when you make numerous unnecessary calls to your spouse when they are hanging out with their friends. Your spouse is an adult and henceforth, a responsible person. So, why do you need to check on them after every few minutes? Would you like it when they do the same to you, no right?
Please do not judge your spouse’s friends based upon your little knowledge about their jobs, families, friend circle or, by listening stories from their old days. Nobody likes to be judged including you, right?

In fact, try to interact with your spouse’s pals. Why cannot you spend time with them and try to know them a little better. Who knows, you all can become good friends!
Showing some courtesy towards your husband/wife’s friend circle will not do you any harm. Yes, asking how are their family members doing, how their job is going on or any other thing, even when you do not like them much is a good quality. Even welcoming them with a smile rather than a frown can be quite pleasing.
Why do you always come up with some urgent work at the last moment due to which your spouse has to cancel all the plans with their friends and accompany you instead? And, if that does not work, you end up blackmailing your spouse emotionally, which is hurtful.
The way you treat your partner and even their parents is just not acceptable. Your spouse’s friends feel sorry for them. Treat them with respect, the way your spouse treats your family.

Marrying someone whom you have just met is a daring step in the true sense. A person you don’t know much about, but are considering spending the rest of your life with him only because your parents’ think he is the right choice for you is not an easy task.Read More
