Ask Amy: Drunken assault severs longtime friendship

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: Recently, after dinner and a fair amount of drinking, my close friend's husband came up behind me and grabbed my crotch.

I was shocked, but decided to blow it off.

We were staying at their vacation condo at the time.

I thought that he would apologize, so we could get past this incident, but the next morning, nothing was said.

We were close friends: We were all golfing partners and enjoyed hiking and dinners out.

Now I'm so sad because he hurt me (and my husband, and his wife), and our relationship has ended because of the deceit.


He is a retired surgeon and should not be able to get away with this.

Should I tell my friend, his wife?

I miss her and she knows something is wrong, but has no idea what it is.

-- Upset Friend
