One of my friends called me up crying a few minutes ago. She said her and her husband are getting a divorce. These people are very good friends of mine and my husband - we’ve known them about 7 years now, and they’ve been together for the majority of that time. We regularly go out for coffee and have movie nights at each other’s houses.
This news came as a complete shock to me - her and her husband are one of those couples who seem made for each other, and neither me or Mr. AFG have seen any outward signs of trouble between them. I’m totally depressed over this right now.
I invited her over so she can try to relax a bit and we can talk. I have no idea what to say to help her at all - what should I (or shouldn’t I) say to her? This is a really tough time for her and I want to be supportive.
