I have a really close friend whose girlfriend I have also become close with. My husband and I double-date with them and go on trips together all the time, and we all get along really well. A couple weeks ago I was out at a club with friends. It was late, like 3 a.m., and the club was pretty big and crowded. As I was making my way through the crowd I saw my friend’s girlfriend making out with some random dude and acting all lovey-dovey with him. I was so shocked. She didn’t see me, because I quickly ducked back into the crowd. But now I don’t know what to do. It feels awkward hanging around them, and I haven’t told her yet what I saw. I know my friend would be crushed if I told him – my loyalty is first to him, but I just feel I have been put in a very awkward situation. My friend has been with this girl for a year, and I know he is serious about her. What do you think I should do?
