Question: I've long thought I'd rather be married to my wife's friend (they met after our marriage), because Friend and I have more similar interests and personalities. Wife has even non-jealously commented on our apparent compatibility.
I've waited years for these thoughts to fade, but they've only gotten stronger. Friend has a positive outlook on life, whereas Wife's issues with moodiness and negativity can be draining.
I don't know how Friend feels about me (she's single). Wife and I don't have kids, and if I could press a button and have a new life with Friend, I'd do it. But I know it isn't that simple.
