Are friends important after a certain age

Freda • Just trying to put another one in the oven ?
It seem like everybody like me but I have no distinctive group of girlfriends. I'm 25 and I'm pretty much married and my spouse says I don't need friends unless we doing couple gatherings. I'm like even gfs like to go out alone. But my problem is attracting right type of females. I meet ppl at my job but you can't mix Buisness with personal I believe so besides my childhood and high school friends on Facebook how can I meet new or gain some out buddies or at this age friends don't really matter
