He Was Helping Out His Widow Friend With Her Home Emergencies, But His Wife Got Upset and Accused Him of Doing “Husband Duties”

This married man got into problems with his wife because he didn’t want to stop helping his female friend, who was a widow. His wife said he was doing things that only husbands should do, and she thought it was unacceptable. Here’s what he had to say:

The man had a close female friend, and he had been friends with her and her husband since college. They lived near each other and were like family. “I was a groomsman in their wedding, and I am the godfather of both boys and was asked to be before both were born,” he said.

Unfortunately, his friend’s husband got very sick with brain cancer. After battling the sickness for three years and nine months, he sadly passed away. Unfortunately, his friend was left to take care of their two boys on her own.

Since he lived close to them, he helped them a lot during the difficult times when her husband was sick. He visited often and helped with lots of things like cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the kids. He even fixed things around the house.

After her husband died, he kept being there for her and her kids. He helped in any way he could. And in the years that followed, he got married to his wife. He had started dating his wife after the man’s passing, so it wasn’t new.

But there was a problem. His wife didn’t feel comfortable with how much he was helping his friend. She thought he was doing things that only a husband would do, and she wanted his friend to figure things out by herself!

There were times when his friend needed urgent help, like when her house had a big water leak. Since he knew how to fix things, he went over to her house and helped clean up the mess. He even helped her talk to her insurance and hire people to fix the damage.

Another time, his friend’s car broke down, so he took care of her kids while she fixed the car. He and her kids had a fun time playing basketball and eating pizza at the park, while she took the car for repairs.

Even though he was just being a good friend, his wife was upset. She thought he was doing too much. She even accused his friend of trying to take him away from her. But he believed in being a good friend and a responsible godfather.

He didn’t want to abandon his friend and her kids, especially when they needed help the most. “My wife is always welcome. She doesn’t usually want to go and instead thinks I should let her figure it out because “she’s a big girl, and she needs to stop acting like I’m her husband,” he said.

People Responded

One poster said, “However well-intentioned. You’re married, so it’s time to set boundaries”

A second user wrote, “I think the real question is: how much time are you spending with your wife? And how many things are you fixing around your own house?”
