We have a couple who have been close friends of ours for many years. Over the last year or so their marriage has started to fall apart, although they have periods where it looks like they are reconciling and post a lot of happy/lovey photos on Facebook. They have begun to withdraw from our circle of friends and are becoming more and more resistant to our overtures of friendship (invitations to go places, etc.).
Maybe I just live in a Pollyannaish bubble, but I've never had close friends divorce. It is sad and depressing when I think about it.
It is depressing. Wait until you find out only one of them really gets to keep each friend, and the alternative scenario is even worse, where they each try to keep you as friend and then inevitably want to discuss the ex with you.
