Not all friends mean well for your marriage and it is advisable to try as much as you can to keep friends off your marriage. Here is how friends can be a threat to your marriage.
1) They can aggravate your problems Don't be fond of pouring all your marital problems before your friends.
Not all friends are happy about your marriage and some of them might be praying for your break up. Choose the friends you share your marriage problems with and be keen on what you share with them.
Do not allow friends to use your problems in bringing your marriage down.
2) Some friends might be the source of trouble in your marriage Some friends can be the cause of trouble in your marriage and some will do so intentionally to wreck your good marriage.
Be keen not to let your friends know everything about you including your private life because they can use it against you.
Some friends can go behind your back and feed your spouse with lies and such can be the beginning of the end of your marriage.
3) Some friends can be jealous of your achievements Not all friends will be happy about your achievements in marriage.
