I’ve started dating a guy that an estranged friend of mine was engaged to and dumped 25 years ago. She completely broke his heart. She’s been engaged eight times, married five, so I hardly think he was special. But some of my girlfriends think it’s not cool and say I’m breaking “girl code.” Am I betraying her?
