My friend is seeing a married man. I am NOT excited at all for her. How do I stay out of it when all she ever does is talk about how great he is? Help me mind my own business.

My friend, whom I'll call Marie, told me that she met a guy. She sounded so happy, so when she told me that he was married my heart just sunk. Of course, she had all of the rationalizations for it in the world when I told her I hope she didn't get hurt. The man and his wife are still living together but "separated". Yeah, right. They also have teenage children. Marie should know better. I told her that, and she assured me that she knew that, and that "this was different". I think he's just a rat bastard playing on my lonely friends emotions. I know I can't stop her from this inevitable train wreck, what can I do when she starts gushing how great he is without exploding about how stupid she's being. I know it's none of my business but she's been hurt so bad before it hurts me to stand by and watch it happen yet again.
