Here's the latest installment of the Friendship Court.
Denise writes: My friend Sarah and I have been best buddies since we were 15. We went to the same high school, college and were in each others wedding parties. We are both now married, with children and in our late thirties. Pre-marriage, we were a little "wild." We each did a few things we would not want our husbands to know. We have recently been having a lot of innocent fun on Facebook, re-connecting with people from our past. Unbeknownst to me, Sarah "tagged" me in a series of compromising photos that my husband, who is also on Facebook saw.
In one of the photos, I am in a bikini top and a "gentleman" who is not my husband is doing a jello shot off my chest. That is the most "mellow" of the photos. My husband took him and me off Facebook and has still not forgiven me. In turn, I have not forgiven Sarah. She keeps leaving me voice mails telling me I am way out of line and over-reacting. How would we fare in The Friendship Court?
Guest blogger Leslie Adler: Denise: My imaginary big burly court officer named Bertha would be ordered to slap Sarah's bare bottom on national television and then we would give her some time in friendship jail to repent and release her after, on probation, only if she agreed to apologize to you and your husband for her complete lack of discretion. Once you are convinced she understands how what she did could be so "disappointing" to say the least, then try to remember the friendship you have had since you were 15 and try to get back that "lovin' feeling." And while you want to please your husband, the photos occurred "pre-him." Remember that and let him know that you need to make your own decision about you and Sarah.
