Do You Think It's Healthy For Couples To Have Separate Social Circles?

Do You Think It's Healthy For Couples To Have Separate Social Circles?

It appears that young Hollywood coupleKevin and Britney Federlineparty in separate crowds. I am sure they mingle with each other's posses but I wonder if it creates a strange kind of separation in their lives.

Of course it's healthy to be an individual even while you are in a couple. Remaining friends with your old friends, sticking with your favorite hobbies and pastimes are all important, but I just wonder if having too much separation is a good thing. What do you think?

I despise my bestie JenJen's man and vice versa. I told her she's going to be 40 yrs old and coming to see me ALONE, does she really want that? I think if you've been besties with someone for over 10 years, the new "love interest" comes along and doesn't like them, it's a red flag. He's already stated more than once that he's jealous of me....freakin' moondweebie! Believe in Magic, or we'll have to take your soul!

I dont think that EVERYTHING should be separate- but I think its important to have your 'own' things, like friends, etc.

All I can think when I see him is that he must be a great lay - how can she stand to look at that and be treated like that?????

Looking at that photo of them.. I just keep thinking that one day soon.. she is going to wake up next to him and think WTF was I thinking marrying this skanky ass loser and tying myself to him forever by bearing him children. I mean seriously. Then she will lose him and truly reinvent herself and gain back the fans that have completely lost respect for her.. and she will make a comeback. Or not.

Yeah, I'm more inclined to pick #2, as well. It's fine if, you know, your bf or husband has the guys over for beer and sports and card games, or if they all go out and do guy-type things (that don't involve strange girls, of course). It's kinda crappy to think in that manner...I mean, you should be able to just trust the guy. But stuff happens. I would like to know who he's hanging around with. Likewise, he would know about my friends. We wouldn't keep anything from eachother. Besides, he's probably thinking the same damn thing should I go out with my friends. It's human nature to wonder.

I chose the first one. The BF and I live together and sleep in the same bed every night. We each go out with our own friends whenever we want, and it's never been a problem.
