You basically have a friend who is in a relationship with way more to lose than gain by you leading him into hobby.
The way I look at it is that if he truely wants to get into the hobby then he will find a way to do it whether I lead him in the right direction or not.
Sometimes it is easier to do things when someone is there to encourage you. But in his case because he is in a relationship with alot to lose I am not willing to encourage him.
Basically I will not lead a horse to water but if the horse happens to find his way there, then I will help him drink.
Just wondering what everyone else thinks about this situation and if they have ever been in the same situation.
