Between Friends is an internationally syndicated comic strip written by Canadian cartoonist Sandra Bell-Lundy. The comic strips appear in more than 175 newspapers in 10 countries around the world. Three middle-aged professional women and the problems that they face in their lives are the main focus throughout the comic strip series. Initially, Maeve, Susan, and Kimberly were all childless, but Susan and Kimberly are now mothers.
This comic strip provides examples of:
- Domestic Abuse: One set of strips have Maeve doing her best to help an old friend Tamara, who was suffering this from her husband Jake.
- Domestic Abuser: Jake, who is being emotionally, verbally, and physically abusive to his wife Tamara.
- Talking in Bed: A commonly recurring trope, often in the "wife talks out her worries while husband just wants to get back to sleep" variant.
