My answer is vague it depends on the couple it depends on the definition of friend it depends on the friend it depends on the women it depends on the man short answer..... yes it possible.

Yes for me it is ok..just cause your married doesn't mean you can never be friends with the oppisite sex again. As long as it is just a friendship and nothing else. I have male friends that I had before my husband which he has met as well as he had 1 female friend before me and I have met her..

I wish it were okay! I would like for it to be! I can admit, that "back in the day" I would have had "issue", but at nearly 40 (shhhh) or with age, at some point you have to "test" the security that we SHOULD have within our marriages. Obviously there should be "boundaries" (just my opinion).... But, especially if there was a "friend" all along. Why cant everyone come together for the common good! A man can learn ALOT from a womans perspective and in turn so can she!
(If there has been issue of infidelity in the past, this doesnt apply to those ppl) ~ LOVE THE CONCEPT OF THIS BLOG! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN :)

As for myself I don't believe men and woman can be friends. I always think their is a hidden agenda behind it. I mean maybe a life long friend but someone that just came out the blue I don't think so. Thats just my two cents.

I thought it was possible for a while because I have male friends who were like my best friends. However given the opportunity I know that these men would want or like more than just a causual relationship with me. It is however up to me to keep the relationships in check. My husband has female friends but I do struggle with it at times. I think friends of the opposite sex should be "Our" friends.

Yes, it is possible, but it depends the friend. Is he/she an ex? If so, then I say no. It also depends on how much the couple trusts one another (really important!). There are a lot of variables, so there is no clear cut yes or no answer. Me personally, I do not feel the need to have male friends, but if I did, I do not think the hubby would have a problem
