Jessica and Tara were sat at Jessica’s house sipping some hot coco when Jessica broke the news to Tara.
“What do you mean Phillip…which Phillip, my Phillip, you cannot be serious”
“No Tara, It’s been going on for about 5 months and its getting serious, I didn’t want to tell you because I did not think it would last, but to be honest, I want to come clean because …beca…”
“Because what!!! TALK NA…” Tara takes a deep breath and settles back down, continues talking “Please don’t let me lose my cool here and be shouting like a fool, because what?….continue now”
“BECAUSE I LOVE HIM” Jessica snaps.
“Oginni….ha this babe has killed me
“I don’t understand why you are upset about this, you have not seen or heard from this dude in 10 years, you have 3 beautiful kids and a husband…why the fuck are you angry”
“Why am I angry?… why am I angry???..I will tell you why. Jessica stands back up and continues, if you marry this man, you expect me to continue being your friend knowing the following things.
1. I told you all about the day I lost my virginity to him, I gave you all the details, you sat there and listened.
2. Everytime I argued with him, I came to you for advice and when I argued with you he gave me advice too.
3. You knew about every sexual encounter I had with Phillip, for God sake Jessica we will go out shopping for sexy lingerie, we would talk about killer sex moves we put on our boyfriends at the time. How can u even be comfortable laying with him knowing exactly what positions we took eachother. Really hunny? Tara stares at Jessica puzzled and continues
4. When we broke up, I cried in your arms for months and we both insulted his life together over numerous tubs of ice cream
I do not have any feelings for Phillip, I could care less about him. I love my husband dearly and you of all people know that. My anger is that you getting with Phillip and potentially marrying him will mean every time I see him, I will always think, like I have been thinking for years ‘God why can’t you erase this man, my 1 mistake so that it would be that my husband was my only lover” I have been wishing Phillip doesn’t exist so I can be happy I saved myself for my husband because he deserved the wait. Also do you really think my husband and I will continue coming over for dinner, family vacs and have our kids play together? Really? You think my husband would gladly be pals with a guy that fucked his wife sideways? Have you even thought this through?
Tara sits down and calms her tone and continues.
Look sweety, I am happy for you that you found love, I truly am, I am just sad that this would mean then end or it will greatly affect our 20 year beautiful sisterhood. I love you so much and I will support your decision because you love him. But I just want you to be aware that going into this, our relationship will take a hit or possibly end and that is what I am upset about.
Jessica moves over to Tara and gives her a hug “I love you too and I will fight for our friendship, I will not let this affect it, I promise”
Both girls embrace in tears.

I've always felt it's a bit unfair to deprive your friend of happiness, even if that happiness comes in the form of your Ex for whom your heart once burned with love, IF you are now married to someone else.
But, I honestly wonder if being married to someone else makes it easier for the friend to accept that her bosom friend is now in a relationship with a man she once loved, doing things with him that she once did, sharing the bed that her body once warmed, and living the life she once thought would be her future?
What's your take guys? Is the Ex fair game if the friend is now married? Are you rooting for Jessica and Phillip, or do you side with Tara and think they should end things? I would love to hear from you.
