The husband's friend has bad mouthed the OP since the start of their relationship as a couple.
The OP feels that there's no point in attending these events because she feels unwelcomed.
The OP asks the AITA community:
The top commenter thinks that the OP should rethink her marriage with her husband because it seems that he prioritizes the friends feelings over hers.
The people in this story are horrible.
Good thing this Redditor is no longer with a person who treats her like trash.
The user with the horrible husband was able to start over and move on. She now lives happily.
The OP has every right to protect her well-being. And that means not attending events where the husband's evil friend is present.
The said friend is losing trustworthy people in her life. That says a lot about her character.
Maybe the husband also needs to shut her friend down. Otherwise, he's also being the problem in this marriage.
Why does the husband keep pushing his wife to attend an event where she constantly has to prove herself? Why expose her to such a stressful environment, especially during the holidays?
The husband is being unfair to his wife. And as users have pointed out, it's not just the friend who's being the problem.
The husband, perhaps unintentionally, is overlooking his wife's feelings and the toll these events take on her emotional well-being. Furthermore, the dynamics between the husband and his friend may be indicative of a broader issue within the relationship.
The husband's insistence on his wife attending events despite her discomfort raises questions about his empathy and consideration for her feelings.
