Here is the thread: http://www.redditlog.com/snapshots/1558834
TL;DR Married woman has straight, single best friend she's known for years. Goes out to a movie with him then hits the bar, gets drunk and brings him home. MIL shows up and offers the guy a ride home but woman says he's spending the night. They're going to 'play cards' all night. MIL exposes her whorish behavior to the family, r/relationships thinks woman's behavior is okay.
So I replied in this thread about how inappropriate it was for this woman to be out on the town with a male friend, getting drunk, bringing him home. Got completely downvoted. Got 2 messages from two women:
1) One who is also married, has several male best friends she sometimes sleeps in the same bed with. But her husband is okay with it because he trusts her.
2) Another woman who is completely devoted to her husband and child but once a year goes on a camping trip alone with her male best friend (and they share a hotel room!) and her husband is okay with it.
Most people in the thread said the woman's behavior was okay because the husband was okay with it. Who cares that she's pretty much making him the laughingstock of the town by having her male best friend stay the night while he's out of town working? Who cares what his stupid mother thinks. She has every right to have her bestie of years who is straight and single spend the night.
While the husband may be okay with his wife having a male best friend, his reaction speaks volumes. He didn't jump to his wife's defense when his mother called her out. He simply walked out. why? Because his wife has no fucking defense. She's acting inappropriately but the consensus on r/relationships is that the husband should be happy that his wife has a male best friend taking her out while he's not there.
