Feeling left out

Would like to know iopinion on how to deal with jealous lady friend. Scenario is = 4 couples (friends). One wife decides to work overseas to earn extra money and comes back once a year for last 3 years. Leaving hubby here. She has in meantime spent lots of her well earned money on travelling by herself and last year she was not sure if coming back to hubby and gave him certain criteria to change before she did. As couples one tends to exclude one single person (wrongly so) so friend's hubby kinda fell by the wayside. The remaining 3 couples planned a wonderful holiday together overseas. Friend working overseas is back in SA for 3 months and very very upset that we chose to exclude her from this holiday. Is it something she must work out for herself or were we nasty ? How do we resolve issue once and for all - is she holding us to ransome.

I entirely agree with Maria ---the only nasty person here is the totally selfish wife who aparentl cares for nobody but herself. Maybe yo should invite her unfortunate husband to join you all in the overseas holiday. And ignore her childish and selfish pouting

The only one who sounds nasty in this story is your so-called "friend". She sounds like a really selfish, immature person who has no idea what friendship or marriage is about. If she can't deal with the fact that other people's lives moved on while she was away, that is her problem. Enjoy your holiday and if she makes life miserable for you, do you need her in your life?
