Dear Ashton: This morning I’ve been thinking about a new friend that I’ve made over the few months. She’s fun, successful in her career, giving, very nice and in my age group. BUT she will have affair with married men; this part does bother me since my ex cheated on me. So my question is should this be a deal breaker for a friendship or not?
– Newfound Friend
Dear Ashton: My friend is a single mom, and there are so many negative assumptions about her situation. People talk and judge her but don’t know the half of her story, and as a friend it truly bothers me. She doesn’t speak up or say anything and I’m usually the one having to help her deal with it. What can I do to defend her?
