One of my friends is likely getting a divorce.
I have plenty of divorced friends and know plenty of divorced people, but this is the first friend who I knew prior to his marriage who is now separated. I'm just not sure how to react, because based on what I know, his wife is totally fucking with him emotionally.
I have not been a big fan of hers for some time. And based on her behavior I suspect there is another guy. I have not told him this. He's in enough pain as it is.
It's very tempting for me to say, "To hell with her!" But it's probably better for me to be more nurturing, so I have told him I'm here if he needs me (we've exchanged probably 100 texts in the past few days) and I am sending him chocolate (he loves chocolate.)
For those of you who have been through a bad breakup or a divorce, what did friends do that helped you?
