Friend dating ex wife
Annie and Alex started bonding and leaning on each other over the course of the prison sentence, and eventually she broke it off with Tom. When I was in my teens, two of the couples — who were particularly good friends with each other — got divorced around the same time.
Now she's married to Alex, and they have kids and law degrees. A few months later, the wife from one of the former couples, Judy, got together with the husband from the other, Terry.
The world found out this week that X-Factor judge Simon Cowell knocked up his friend's soon-to-be-ex-wife, Lauren Silverman.
(She and her husband, real-estate mogul Andrew Silverman, are in the process of divorcing.) This is bad form on both Cowell and Silverman's part, but it's probably a much more complicated situation than we'll ever understand, even though we'll certainly hear more than we ever wanted to from the tabloids. Chafetz and the other husband turned to each other for solace. Two years later in a dramatic swap, the former best friends married each other’s spouses.
The Girl Who Wound Up With Her Jail-Visit Buddy"Back in college, I knew a group of guys who were on their way to a Phish concert when the driver lost control of the car.
They went over the median and killed someone who was coming from the opposite direction.
They've since gotten married, and seem extremely happy.
For one couple, the trip ended with a spouse swap, not terribly unlike Cowell's situation. Y, is still aghast about a last-resort cruise to the Caribbean she took in 2008 with her husband of seven years. It's not an ideal situation, and we certainly wouldn't condone infidelity, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that your best friend's lover could love you, too — or .
None of the other guys in the car were hurt, but the driver, Tom, wound up doing prison time, about a year.
He had a serious girlfriend at the time, Annie, and she would go visit him in jail, often with his best friend, Alex.
The cruise was booked a year in advance, but she and her husband decided to forge ahead anyway, in part because their best friends — a couple who was also having troubles — were coming. “My husband and my best friend kept disappearing together,” Ms. She recalls one particularly excruciating evening when the two couples dropped into the ship’s nightclub as the steamy song “Low” by Flo Rida came on. Chafetz watched in horror as her best friend “got all on top of my husband” on the dance floor. Hearts may get broken along the way, but sometimes these scandalous, borderline incestuous couplings result in very happy relationships.
On the last day at sea, her best friend announced that was she quitting marriage counseling. We've rounded up a few (anonymous) anecdotes from around the office; feel free to add your own in the comments.
They were together for only a few months, I think sophomore year, and then she dated someone else for the rest of college. I thought she'd get over it, but she and another girl sent me a bunch of weird text messages.
