  • Women usually do not like their husbands to have female friends.
  • Here are a few reasons!

With men and women working for long hours together it is quite normal and common for them to become good friends. However, when it comes to married life, having female friends can prove to be problematic for husbands and vice-versa. From jealousy, and insecurity to trust issues, female friends of husbands can trigger different alarms in the minds of the wives.

Compromising family time

Usually, women do not mind their husbands talking to their female office colleagues outside work because they do know that after spending so much time together they are bound to develop a certain level of friendship. However, if it becomes a regular thing and rather a priority then wives would definitely not like it because it means their husbands are giving their special family time to their female friends.

If the marriage has double standards

If the husband is a typical male chauvinist who does not like his wife having male friends then the wife will surely not trust a husband with a female friend. No independent wife would allow her husband to have a female friend if she is not allowed to openly have a good friendship with her male colleagues.

Trust issues

If there are trust issues in a marriage then the wife will definitely not allow her husband to even look at another female. And this need not be necessary because the wife is suspicious by nature but more because the man has a history of cheating or multiple affairs before marriage.

If that female friend is single and attractive

Most probably wives would not mind their husbands having healthy friendships with females if these girls are happily married or have steady boyfriends. However, if these female friends are attractive and single and the husbands are their only male friends then there is a strong possibility of an affair there. In that case, the wives are right not to allow their husbands to remain friends with such girls.

When husbands meet female friends behind their wives

Any wife is comfortable when her husband meets his female friend at home or when she is not alone with him. But if a husband starts meeting his female friend alone outside the office for lunch and other outings then she will not allow him to be in touch with such a female friend.
