Her other friends despise him, as well, and have little or nothing to do with him, but she really tries to force him on us.

Chili, is it possible she "forces" him on you because he refuses to let her see her friends without him? Or possibly that she trusts that he won't get physically abusive if either you or her other friends are around?

Whatever you do, don't walk away from your friendship with her. One of the power moves that abusers use is to separate the abused spouse from all possible forms of support, including financial, family, friends, and anyone else who might have an inkling of what's really going on. He might be abrasive towards you with the explicit purpose of trying to push you away. Then he can tell his wife "See? I'm the only one who will stick by you."
