    At least in the stories that I read. In Amazing #289 ( When at Ned's funeral.), Peter's internal monologue even states that Ned was a friend.


Yes, people tend to gloss over stuff during funerals and shortly after deaths and romanticize the good times and don't focus on the times where they were competing for for jobs and for women. How much of a friend is Peter really to Ned if he has an affair with his wife***, even if they're estranged? At one point, Peter was ready to just write off Betty after Ned and her just started dating because he didn't like Ned all that much. I specifically remember a scene of Peter and Betty in a diner drinking coffee and the conversation is very forced,

***I am specifically avoiding the "did they have sex?" question because I think it is pointless. The stories present Peter and Betty as being back together and seeing eachother as more than friends. Peter is conflicted about it but he really doesn't call it off until much later.
