Should you marry your best friend?

I met a really wonderful woman on my business trip this week. She had been married for 20 years and said that her husband was just diagnosed with cancer. It was obviously a great source of pain for her but when she talked about possibly losing her best friend, I nearly started to cry!

She said that the best part of their marriage was the fact that they are so close. They have been best friends and she believes the dynamics of their marriage was strengthened by this. Well, it made me think that marrying your best friend makes a lot of sense.

My best friend is a woman and is already married with kids. I already asked if she wanted to marry me but she won’t budge. However, I can picture falling in love with a man and we become best friends, though. I’m curious about how this all works in a marriage. For instance, if I want to vent to my best friend how my man is driving me nuts and I want to plot his demise. It could get awkward!

Seriously, though what happens when your significant other is your best friend? Would it work out better for the relationship? Can the friend dynamic of a dating relationship ever backfire in some way?

blue – @Celisea – He’ll send a plastic flower for Mother’s Day or call and say he’s found “religion” every six months – lol, stories like that make me wish i had siblings just to have the stories, lol

Growing up, it was ALWAYS a riot…overcrowded, sharing bedrooms, not a lot of eating out but memories out the window. Some of the best times ever!!

Yeah, plenty of those type incidents. I was just telling mama Sunday, my brothers cap and gown picture had to be redone from a huge scratch where I sprayed Pledge and wiped. She was whipping folks left and right…I never opened my mouth. When I told her Sunday she said if she had the strength she would pop me…LOL
