Our best friends have just announced they are getting a divorce and I’m terrified it will happen to us. My husband says not to be silly, and we are really happy, but I can’t stop obsessing about it. *Name withheld, by email *

**Tracey says: **You’re quite right in your assumption that close friends who divorce can influence others to do the same. Men are particularly prone to “the ripple effect.” It’s especially influential if you’re having the same problems the other couple had. But you needn’t worry – your husband is perfectly happy and your relationship seems like a good one. This makes you both immune and more likely to be envied by the couple going through the split!
