I came across this article while trying to find a topic for this week’s Sweetheart Saturday post. It brings a different meaning to marrying your best friend.
I consider my husband to be my best friend but we dated and became friends during that process. We met through mutual friends. We dated for a few months and within the first six months we decided to have a baby and get married (yes, in that order). I was almost six months pregnant when we got married. That was over 8 years ago and even though it seemed improbable to many, we’re still in it for the long haul! In the article it talks about two people who have been friends for years without dating getting married. I just thought it was interesting and worth the read.
Do you consider your partner your best friend? Were you friends before you started dating? Did your friendship form while dating? Do you value the friendship factor in your relationship? Do you maintain your sense of independence (financial or otherwise) in the relationship like the article mentions? Share what you feel comfortable with!
