To think I wouldn't get married again

DH and I are very much in love, but my best friend doesn't like him and we had a little argument before where she said I would end up divorcing him and then my kids would have a stepfather!

AIBU to think even if I did split from DH, I wouldn't want to get married again? She's right as I definitely wouldn't want our children to have another man in their house.

What an awful thing for your friend to say.

Just, truly, awful.

Sounds like you need a crystal ball, PM me if you want to buy a really great one only £1,200 to you seeing as you are a mums netter.

What a bizarre conversation to have!
You could always divorce your DH so you could prove her wrong confused

I think most women think that they wouldn't remarry/have a live in partner if they split from the father of their children. A great many do though.

She's secretly in love with you and that's why she doesn't like your DH and is hoping you will divorce. But she wants to be your children's stepmother. She said stepfather to throw you off the scent.

Sorry just trying to point out , arguing over something that may or may not happen in the future is rather futile and daft(hence wondering how daft you may be, daft enough to consider buying a crystal ball).

Just out of interest if your DH dropped dead tomorrow, and in a few years you met a wonderful man or woman, would you not feel you could have a relationship?

I think after that conversation I might consider 'divorcing' my best friend. Unless she was drunk and wouldn't have voiced her opinion normally.

It wasn't an argument, it was more a general chat as we are TTC right now and I think she's worried unnessecarily of course.

Isn't it a bit of an issue to have a best friend who hates your DP and keeps telling you?

You can't know about how your relationship might end, if you marry. According to the ONS, in 2012, 45000 divorced people got remarried, 28.6 percent of all marriages.

Your friend is an idiot and the two of you really need to get out more if this is the type of thing you end up talking about. These kids you would never introduce to a theoretical new man don't even exist yet.

Loads and loads of divorced women remarry. Some remarry arses and were unreasonable to do so. Others remarry lovely men and are very happy. Your taste in friends suggests you might pick an arse by mistake so probably YANBU. Hth.
