Should you befriend married people?

The is some debate among my friends about if and how you should befriend married people. I think you should befriend the couple, others think it is ok to become close friends with one. It seems like a slippery slope not worth the pitfalls that are sure to come.

Do you ever meet someone who is married and wants to be your friend? Do you proceed with caution or take a pass? Should single people be careful about becoming close friends with someone who is happily married?

I don’t think people go into friendships with the expectation of being attracted to their friends. I also don’t think you should put yourself in a position of being tempted. If you spend significant time with someone you are attracted to, isn’t it inevitably going to lead to romance?

What would you do if one of your married friends became a little too friendly?
