Hello, I need your advise and guidance on the following issue: Brace yourself, this post is going to be long My husband had a best friend(20 yrs of friendship since college). His wife and I used to get a long very well. A few years back, she moved to our city for work and lived at our place and it was at that time I knew we could be good friends. Back to present day, my husband and I along with my 9 month old kid moved to their city. The reason we moved here was because these friends were living here and we were pretty much alone where we lived earlier. DH's friend helped float his resume and helped him get a job in the same company. DH's friend's parents came to visit and we all got along pretty well. We lived in their house for about 1 and half months, which I know is a huge deal. They also included us their friends circle. Issue1 : The friends had two children - boy was 8 and girl was 3. They used to play with my kid, but the problem was since my kid was still a baby, they did not know how to play with her. They would run while she was on the floor so much so that she would get hurt, the boy would carry her and play with her, but it was dangerous coz, her bones were still forming. The friends and their parents would not say a word to their kids even though they did something wrong and my kid got hurt. So I and my husband started telling them politely and tried tell them not to do certain things, since our kid might get hurt. One fine day, just one day before my kids first bday, I was packing return gifts for the party. My kid was playing with the 8yr old and she was about fall from the sofa. I caught her just in time, but somehow the boy got hurt. He started crying and Uncle just started shouting on top of his voice at him not play with my kid. I felt very bad and from then on our problems with the family started. They did not come to the party and everyone noticed it. I was so excited to spend my kid's first bday and it was one of the worst days and extremely depressing. Now the parents never come to our house. DH's friend and his wife were sort of supportive but I could understand their position. Before they left to India, I invited the to my house for dinner. Uncle flatly refused and was very hurtful. Now I don't talk to him anymore Issue 2: DH's friend has a bad habit of bad mouthing people. They used to carpool to office and talk about everything including our marriage. My husband is extremely opinionated and will not bother about surroundings if he has to scold me. He did that multiple times while we were living in their house. During carpools, his friend began telling my DH that we argue a lot and he and his wife do not argue at all. My husband got wild and began coming home and scolding me for not listening to him in public (which I do). One day I got frustrated and told DH's friend's wife about this and she confronted him about this. Since then, they stopped carpooling. The problem did not end there. DH friend began telling everyone in the office not to carpool with my husband. He also stopped calling my husband for tennis and other outings. Issue 3: The friends wife is extremely money minded. She would always tell in public that I and my DH have lot of money. (When they needed money, we actually helped them multiple times). One day I got wild and told her in front everyone that just because we helped them does not mean we have money, its just that we have a good heart. Issue 4: We all went to a movie one day and my husband went early to get movie tickets for everyone. In the theater, friends wife and her family along with her friends all sat together. But I and my husband kid could not sit together. There was one seat which if one of them moved, we could have all sat together. But they refused and my friends wife and DH exchanged a few words. Later it escalated in such a way that she started saying that they have been adjusting a lot for us etc. AFter this incident, one day I called her as I wanted to end the misunderstandings and hoped everything will be back to normal. When I asked her if she had something in mind and that we can clear it up. She said she did not have anything. Issue 5: Slowly the friends started not to include us in activities, and ensured that we knew about it as well. They started playing politics and now I dont even feel like going to get-togethers etc. The other friends in the group used to call me and speak nicely but now they are also not that friendly. How do I deal with this situation?
