I have these friends who I love. Both halves of the couple are my best friends and they just happened to fall in love and get married.
And for a while it looked like they were living happily ever after.
And then things started to go wrong for them.
Lots of outside pressures.
And lately when I see them it's horrible. They are horrible to each other.
She's the worst. She's contemptuous and mean.
He is sarcastic and dismissive. But from what I can see, which I get isn't everything, she usually starts it.
I'm sad for them.
It's not gonna be happily ever after and I'm sad for both of them.
I wish I could fix things. I've tried. A little. Gently. To tell them to play nice and be respectful. Like either of them would with anyone else.
But they seem to be past that.
I hope not. But hoping isn't believing.
