    How to get over a close friendship?

    He was a friend to a married woman now he is married and she feels lonely without his close friendship since he married lots has changed. What would make this  woman move on  and still be the neighborly friend without that close bond from before?

    I am not sure of the exact situation and, of course, have the luxury of being objective here, but that woman has to realize that there may not be an appropriate place for her right now in his life.  She may have to just back off and let the guy define the relationship.  If he is busy with his new wife, then she should let him have this time with her and try not to interfere or place guilt on him.  The friendship may come around again in time.

    Well amiebutchko, the big difference betewwn the here and the now and what might be in the future is that the old friendship the woman had with this man in the way that she/they had it is over.  He is now married and starting a new life.  The woman needs to realize that she will never be as close to this man as she once was because he is now married and all of his allegiance to the republic | a complex pattern of cross-party allegiances.belong to his wife the same as if this woman were to have married and owe all of her allegiance to the republic | a complex pattern of cross-party allegiances to her husband.  I suggest that she move on to newer friends both male and female and allow this man to bond with his wife in an upright and proper manner.  I do not believe that she would want to be any tiny part of a cause of this man and his wife breaking up of divorcing and be seen as the interloper.  No one would be happy in any part of that situation would they?
