Non-step related ~ Best Friends Husband talking to his best friends widow
Question~ I am on the fence here...
My best friend has called a few times this week very upset. Her husband's best friend died suddenly a few months ago and her husband has been talking with his widow lately. He didn't really know her to well before his friend died but since his death he has called her to offer to help out with anything she might need and has just listened to her cry and talk. So first he is not the only one of the guys friends that calls to check on the widow others do also. However my friend is a little bothered because he listens to this woman cry but isn't all that great at listening to her.
So I kind of think that my friends husband just misses his friend and so does his widow and he is just checking on her because he knows his friend would do the same. However the other side of me says it may start out innocent but the widow in a Vulnerable state could become attached and her husband may not even see that or he could become attracted to her vulnerability. It is a tuff call but I do think it is innocent. What are your thoughts and how would you feel if your husband did this?
