mmmmm the crowd says.
Women: does your husband sit there for hours listening to you every day, pore over every detail?
nooooo your best friend does that.
Men: does your wife kick the footy with you, laugh at your fart jokes, be your friend even if you have not seen for for 6 months?
nooooo your best friend does that
Marriage is a sacred covenant between two people who love each other as eros and companionship love. It is a beautiful partnership.
But I dont buy that corny line, “I married my best friend’.
Marriage is far more than that.
The two become one.
Two different people, with perhaps vastly different likes, interests, get together and share life together.
I am not saying you are not friends….but if you are married, you are lovers….joint homemakers together, its different to being best friends.
