  • "Ugh, we're hanging out with him again?"

    There's nothing wrong with your guy having a friend whose company you don't love—no one says spouses are required to adore each other's friends, especially that one college pal who likes to pretend he and your hubby never left the frat house. What is wrong is insulting your man's choice of friends. Your disdain may also suggest that you'd prefer to pick his friends for him—and no one wants to be told who they should be pals with.

    A better choice, suggests Ford is this: "Oh, honey, you know I don't always enjoy doing the same things as you and George, so why don't you plan a guys' night instead?" Remember, there's no marriage rule that says you two have to do everything together. He might actually be relieved to have a little guy time with his pal that doesn't involve him having to worry if you're having fun or are offended by his friend's jokes. (And keep this in mind: If a friend is really awful, then your husband is much more likely to see that on his own, over time, whereas if you nag him to drop the dolt, it may never happen.)
