But it’s more than a birthday call. And more than the interest in wedding planning … it is the fact that I feel like my BFF has abandoned me. Again, in her defense she may feel like I was the one who did the walking away — I’m no longer as available to watch Sox games and go shopping on Saturdays — but isn’t everyone these day equally biz?
But I’m wondering … was she being a jerk because she thought I had changed? I mean I get that there ain’t much exciting about married life. (All those fabulously successfully sitcoms were about dating, not marriage.) And I’m pretty positive that listening to me talk about comparative mortgage analysis is bo-ring, but I don’t think that being married has made me into a drone type. I still have wine and whine seshes with the ladies and I enjoyed watching my team clinch the Wild Card. So why aren’t we on the same page?
I know I’m not alone. My dear friend KiKi essentially lost contact with her brother when she got hitched. They were the best of friends but something shifted when she said, “I do.” Now they talk, but it isn’t like it used to be. And Sharon said that her bridesmaid fell off the map post-nups.
Tell me. Have you had life-long relationships shift because of your marriage?
