Dude, That's My Friend!
You and your beloved have gone through a break up. Now, in addition to deciding who gets which CDs, you have to decide who gets the keep the friends. What do you do with that core group of “couple” friends who you both enjoy spending time with?
This is a difficult situation for everyone involved. With discretion and tact, it is possible for you to “share custody” of your friends. However, it’s important to consider your motives. If you are trying to maintain a tie to your ex, perhaps moving on to a new friend group would help you move forward. If you really just want to keep your friends, then fight for them—especially those that you were close with before the relationship began. This is a time when friendship counts, so surround yourself with people you love.
