How do you get rid of a bridezilla matron of honor?

by Sarah Smart

Q: What is the best way to get rid of a best friend/matron of honor, who is in your wedding party and is causing havoc?  She is being uncooperative, disruptive, and driving everybody nuts with her criticisms.  My bridesmaids are threatening to step out of the wedding party because of her behavior.  She claims everyone is jealous of her because she’s the only one in the wedding party who’s married.

A: Tell her you decided to have another close friend stand up for you as your maid of honor and you changed your mind about having a married person in your wedding party.  No other explanation is necessary.  Don’t add stress to your life by trying to explain her “crimes” to her.  Your feelings are the most important in this scenario.

Q: Recently, I stopped by my girlfriend’s house unexpectedly and as I stood at the door about to ring the doorbell, I overheard her telling a friend on the phone all about our relationship.  Some of the things she mentioned were very personal and private to me, and I resented her for it.  I broke up with her because I felt betrayed, but all my friends say that I overreacted to a common occurrence.  Do women tell their girlfriends everything and are men expected to overlook this major flaw?  What do you say?

A: I say, I don’t blame you.  It may well be a common occurrence, but not one to be witness to.  I think that what goes on in a relationship should be kept sacred, and anyone who violates that rule should be shunned and dismissed, especially if they’re caught.  Good for you!
