Devon and I just had a friendly discussion about whether you should or should not drink when going out with a pregnant friend. Obviously I don’t hang out with a lot of pregnant women, but Devon does, occasionally there will be one of the guys who isn’t drinking, so the question becomes do you drink if your friend isn’t drinking?
Maybe the difference in opinion is gender but we definitely disagree. Devon believes that solidarity with a pregnant friend precludes her from imbibing; I on the other hand do not think it matters.
As you head out this evening for happy hour or dinner with a friend who is not drinking, will you show solidarity? Or will you enjoy your favorite cocktail knowing they will understand?
