Yup, that seems alright to me too Hanners. 5 years is a long time. You'd be dealing with a seriously bitter person if they have a problem after such a long time.
@ghost and HopHead -
Friend #1 moves to another city and asks Friend #2 to 'look out' for his missus while he is away. They kinda consider eachother best friends.
Friend #1 and his missus havevsome baggage because she feels the relationship isn't really going anywhere as #1 is more concerned about his career/higher education, than worrying about the future of the relationship. Regardless, they do long distance.
Friend #2 spends lots of time with #1's missus, while #1 is away, everything from movies, dinners and music festivals, but ensures everything is 'platonic'.
One year goes by and #1 moves back to the same city, as his missus and #2, only to be blindsighted with a break-up. #1 takes it on the chin and starts dating a girl from the other city he was working in for a year, and she even moves in with him. #1's former missus immediately shows tons of signs that she's interested in #2. #2 cuts her off out of respect for #1.
About 6 months later, #2 can't handle it anymore and professes his love for #1's ex. #1 is pissed off and gives him an ultimatum, end it with the ex or end the friendship. #2 isn't budging and wants to continue dating the ex.
