Well, as I said, we think the new man is bad for her. He is, to be blunt, a misogynistic bullshitter. Well, he can be charming, and can talk about many things (he has a PhD, though it doesn't show), he is attentive to her... And that's where the trouble starts - he is the sort who doesn't help so much as does it for her. In my book that starts to become disabling. And he can talk about almost anything - in fact whatever you talk about, he has a story to top it! Wonderful experience of life, or bullshit?
Anyway, my wife went shopping with her, and brought up that we felt we didn't get on with him. This quickly went downhill, as she responded that he finds it difficult to get on with us, and we are her only friends for whom this is a problem. To avoid disaster, my wife didn't go into any more details of issues, and over our last meal before we came home, we were all excessively polite to each other.
In particular, my wife didn't bring up that she had expressed concern over both our friend's previous marriages, and had been proved right! Nor, that our friends who have met the guy feel the same about him that we do. Now it's time to think of ways for my wife to meet her friend alone in the medium term, I think.
