I thought I might gather some advice from the SI community. My friend is "getting married" next month but just found out this morning that her partner has been cheating on her with someone from her graduate school cohort this past summer. (I write "getting married" because they actually married in NY last fall as a same-sex couple, but will be having a ceremony here next month on their one-year anniversary.) Technically, they are already married, but the event next month is the real deal: white dress, bridesmaids (which I am one), reception, etc.
I'm meeting her for lunch soon, and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice? My plan is just to listen and lend support as she's in the JFO stage. I feel like she's in a pressure cooker of stress given the usual anxiety of a wedding looming over her head, and now with this news....yikes.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
