While it may be tempting to discuss your marriage problems with friends, it can cause problems. This is because your friends will want to be supportive to you, and they will not like to hear that you are hurting. Getting friends involved in marriage problems can hurt the relationship, because your friends do not share the bond you have with your spouse. They care about you, and when they hear negative things they will want to rescue you. They may be quick to advise you to leave your spouse, when in the end that may not be the best option for you.
