I didnt leave u out.
That first thanks u two, was for u and Tway.
When I typed that, there had only been 2 replies. Yours and Tways.
I thanked the girls a second time, because they gave a second reply each.

Thats what I thought, until I heard the same miserable stories for months one end. :(
Last week, I tried to cut in and talk about stuff I am interested in, and continued to do so, until she told me she did not want to talk about this subject anymore. She then went back to talking about everthing in her life being miserable and meaningless. :(

No!!!
It can be the territory of anybody who wants to listen to my whinging.
Anyway, I did thank u and Tway. See post number 5.
Then number 6 was to thank Samsara, for post number 4, which she posted while I was in the process of making post number 5.

Also she is constantly telling me that her life is meaningless and that she is unhappy.

This would be the part that worries me more than the other topics, although I can tell from previous posts, that other topics bother you more. If she really means what she tells you, then I think it would be rather wise, to call in some professional help. She has to realise, that her feelings, are not unique and that everybody has doubts, about everything in life. A psychologist, can make her a lot of things clear, in just a few sessions. To friends (you) it's easy to complain about everything, but when you really have to write in down, and see what the real problem is, than she can make real changes.

About the other stuff: I don't know her situation, but it seems that she needs someone to listen to, and her husband, but doesn't seem to be that person. To me, that doesn't sound like a very healthy relationship. If it is all girl-talk (or what she thinks is girl-talk, maybe based on former friendships), than I wouldn't worry about it too much, but make ik clear to her, without being too rude, that you don't feel like discussing things like that. (might be a surprise to her, after sharing these things for about 2 years)
