Could something be going on with my husband and best friend?

I have had a best friend of over 15 years. We went to school together, had our kids together, had many, many nights together and were inseparable. She came to my house the other night, like we would normally do. We drink, hang out and let the kids play. Well I turned in early that night and left her and my husband up. Which I feel like I trust both of them and thought nothing of it. We were all pretty drunk and it was just hitting me different that night. When I woke up the next day, I found my husband did not come to bed… I got up to look for him and he was asleep on there couch with my best friend…They were not laying side to side but head to head on the secitonal and they were holding hands…we always hold hands in our sleep so he said he thought she was me…which I get I guess…but now I can’t help to have weird feelings when she comes around…Am I over thinking this?

Help a mama out and respond anonymously on our forum. Could something be going on with my husband and best friend?

I feel like you’re not

Yikes. :grimacing: No, you’re not overreacting. I’m not sure I’d be able to move on from that easily either. It would be wise for the three of you to have a civil conversation about this so there aren’t things left unsaid that need to be said. If you don’t, it’ll just eat you alive.

I don’t think you’re overthinking it tbh

I don’t care what woman it is… Best Friend,new friend, old friend, neighbor friend. Work friend…etc… never ever would this happen. Hubby goes to bed with me. Period.

Have another night together & hide a baby cam, you’ll have your answer.
End of the day though, trust your gut. Don’t let your heart block your mind though, if you even have to ask than that itself would be enough.

I’d take note of it & be on the lookout but I know I’ve had too much to drink & ended up walking into the wrong house. :joy: I’ve found my husband cuddled up next to a bush after a boys night. So it’s definitely something that could have been a complete accident but could indicate there MIGHT be something. I’d honestly talk to her about it.

If it were my best friend than I confront her and him together.

Even if he did think it was you, why was she holding his hand back. Something is off with that for sure. I can guarantee I would NEVER do that with my best friends husband. I’d go lay in the bed with her before sleeping on the couch with her husband.

Not at all!!! Were they both still fully dressed? Were they drunk also? Holding hands and sleeping together on the couch is a hell no for me!!! I would confront them both and idk if she is really your friend she should have apologized for it even looking like they did! But your gut doesn’t lie but friends and husband’s do😬

I broke up with my fiancé 6 weeks before our wedding because we literally spent countless hours fighting over my best friend of 8 years and how he “don’t like her” and “she’s a hoe” and a bad influence on me
They ended up dating for 5 years and had a daughter together after we broke up

I trust not a soul……

This happend to me with my ex except we wasnt drunk. The sameee thing happened. Trust mee they did something. Dont let them tell you they didnt!

Maybe he was actually just that drunk he did think it was you and your friend might have been asleep and didn’t feel him holding her hand …
I mean if your best friend and husband was gonna have a shag surely they’d be a bit more careful

I would NOT assume like some women are telling you to do, you need to have communication and voice your concerns to the both of them

Stop holding it in and confront them both together and watch their facial expressions… if someone is lying they can’t make eye contact plus some people will look up when lying some peoples ears will turn red they’ll be fidgety with their hands etc.

Definitely raises some questions for me. I’ve been very drunk before with friends and still had a firm grasp on what lines you don’t cross. I could not imagine sleeping with my head on my husband’s friend and holding his hand. I would ask your husband and watch for signs he’s lying. Talk to the woman too. I would do it separately. it’s easy to tell when someone is lying. Trust your intuition.

Just be careful who you called your best friend. My EX husband slept with my friend and just recently told me. She’s been smiling in my face for years knowing she’s done this! But karma has gotten the best of both of them. My gut always told me it was true…… but they kept denying it. He finally cried to me and told me everything. Always wondered why he “hated “
Her so much and talked so bad about her. Everything makes sense now.

I’d keep your guard up but I wouldn’t be so quick to assume either. Do you have any other reason to believe there’s more going on? Like has she been a homewrecker before or did he leave a spouse to get with you?

It doesn’t matter what women it is, if your married he’s supposed to be in bed with you, not holding someone else’s hand or head!!
But I guarantee that if you ask both of them in front of each other it’ll be it was an accident and they didn’t mean for it to happen

Shouldn’t be getting drunk with kids around. As for your husband and friend, they are infatuated with one another. You can’t stop a affair now.

Nope outta here with his ass and her !

heck no lol. my husband and i had a male friend once. super comfortable around him and he practically lived w us. one night he climbed in our bed with us, which should have been the red flag, but it wasnt. I woke up in the night to him groping my breast and pressing his boner again my butt. My husband and I have started nightly fun times like this before, so I thought it was him at first… as soon as I realized I got out of bed and went to sleep on the couch. I told my husband immediately after he woke up.

I did admit that it was possible that in my sleep I pushed my butt against him first thinking it was my husband… but that I in NO way wanted it and as soon as i realized i put an end to it real quick. said friend left that day and never came back, so i think he caught the hint.

does your husband always sleep thru the night? I have a hard time believing you slept on the couch and didnt wake once to realize where you were sleeping and who you were holding hands with.

A real man drunk or not would never cheat.

They should not be sleeping on the couch together, period! Since there are children, for their sake, try to keep comments and actions as civil as possible. I would let both know its unacceptable. Do you love him and want things to work out? She no longer is welcome to your house and is not a friend. Pay attention if husband is gone from the house excessively. Be prepared to leave if they dont understand and refuse to cooperate. Then you head straight to a lawyer to protect you and your children.

Ask each of them separately if anything happened. A reliable denial consist of 3 parts:
“I didn’t/did not have sex with ____”
If someone says pretty much anything besides a denial (for instance: “I would never do that to you” “I don’t even find him/her attractive” “you’re crazy” or answers the question with another question “why would you think/ask that?” ) If the answer is anything except a reliable denial then you will know.

Seen this happen a few times over the years and its funny but during a “double betrayal” its the bro-code violation by the best friend that hurts worse than the affair by the spouse, good luck, I hope its nothing

Why not just talk to them both instead of listening to all these ladies telling you not to trust your husband and best friend? People are so quick to not trust anyone and nay say :roll_eyes: Just ask them if something happened and tell them it made you uncomfortable. I’m telling you, being outright and forthcoming from the start is the best way to be in all situations. Don’t nancy foot around the truth, just ask :woman_shrugging:

I’ve been super drunk with my best friend and her husband and nothing like this has ever happened. However I have slept in the same bed as him because it was the only place to sleep, and she told me to since they had yet to get a couch at their new place, and I slept as far away from him as possible and faced the other way and so did he. So really just trust your gut feeling on this, sit them both down and ask them at the same time what is up. If you know them as well as you think, you’ll find your answer through their body language and your intuition.

Nope, you’re not overthinking it at all.
You got his poor excuse, so what was hers?
Short story: My ex-BFF and ex-husband would dial each other up multiple times a day while he and I were divorcing. Over the decades of friendship and 7 years of marriage, I never realized just how comfortable they became with each other — never again.
Trust. No. One.
Best of luck. :blue_heart:
