TRY

Having not seen each other for many years, the two old friends speak of each husband's shortcoming as soon as meeting again.

It's not that hard at all.

Soon after reuniting with each other after years  apart,  the two old friends(women) began to talk about their husbands' shortcomings.

The English version in the newspaper is:

Two old friends got together after many years and soon fell to discussing their husbands' faults.

I think "fell" is very well used here.

They started to  bore to each other their hubands's  shortcomings right  after their  reunion after two years.

("bear to each other" particuly refers to intimate talking between two  women with close relationship).

Or

They started grumbling about their husbands for their shortcomings right after their reunion after years.
