Our expert says:
Its surely normal to have friends, some of whom are mail, and most spouses don't find this objectionable. As I expected, it sounds as though your husband really doesn't have any genuine friends, and covers potential embarrassment about this by saying he "doesn't believe" in friends. So he has no personal experience based on which he could easily understand your friendships. Sounds like he inherited his parents friends, rather than making any for himself. Am I hearing that he DOES believe in spending time with your kids, but not with friends or indeed with each other ?
So no, of course there's nothing wrong with your entirely normal friendships, as described. The difficulty your husband has in understanding and accepting this was presumably there from the start of your relationship with him, and is unlikely to change unless he can be persuaded into mariage counselling to explore ways of understanding each other better.
