Either your friends or your relationship may be in troubled waters if there’s a conflict between the two. If your friends really care about you, they only want to see you happy. If your marriage is a source of happiness and your friends disapprove, there’s something funny going on there. On the other hand, if your marriage makes you unhappy on a regular basis, your friends may just be looking out for you. They may be worried that you’re selling yourself short or willing to stay with someone who they think doesn’t treat you well. That can be a legitimate source of friction, so you should figure out which relationship is really the problem.
