Her ugly message ended our long friendship

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am an older gay man and married my husband three years ago.

A college friend, a woman, invited me, just me, to her family’s cottage by the lake this weekend. I spent many wonderful times in that cottage since college. This whole friend’s family considered me family until I got married.

I invited her, her family, and their significant others to my wedding, but they all refused. So they probably all know I’m married.

It’s the first I’ve heard from her since then. I wrote back and declined the invitation saying, “I’m sorry but I have not spent a night without my husband since we got married and I could not imagine doing it now. But thank you very much for thinking at me.”
