Non-Married Friends

I have a question for those who have non-married friends. Friends who are not even dating someone.

Does being married seem to effect your friendship?

I have a few friends who are not even dating anyone, and they seem to be pulling away. I don't know if it's because they feel like a 3rd wheel or an odd man out. When i bring it up to them, they totally deny anything and say that it's not because we're married... or as one even said "a package deal" and they're not. So i don't know if they're just trying to be nice or really mean it. But it still seems to me that they are seperating themselves from us and clinging more to their other non-married friends. And it's not like this is something that can easily be fixed.

This particular friend I have in mind lives 2 hours away and my husband loves her. So if we went to visit her, or if she came for a visit... he wants to visit with her too. I don't want to take that away from him to do girl weekends only. But at the same time, i think just girl weekends would help our friendship. We could try every other, but these visits are so rare that it's difficult.

I don't know. I just want to see if there's anyone else going through something similar.
