Marrying your Best Friend
Posted 7/28/12
it's different for other people, in my opinion, I don't wanna ruin the best times I ever had with my best friend. Being in a relationship, more likely an affair will interfere within; and bestfriends should be for life; my point is, atleast you have a bestfriend to talk to when you have a relationship problem or when you are feeling down. To be frank, my best friend is a guy, not that I think it would matter anyway, my contention still stands upon this thread. This may be slightly off topic, I don't believe in soul mates either, I don't believe someone is destined to be with someone out there, I believe you just happen to pass by someone you think who caught your attention, from there building a foundation is entirely up to you.

marrying your best friend is how marriages last. but you should probably become best friends while keeping the possibility of romantic involvement alive.

I probably wouldn't...

It couldn't possibly give the type of romance I want.

I think the person you end up marrying should be your best friend. You have to build a relationship on trust and admiration first, which is often how you feel about your best friend.


Yep, and it's worked well for me. And don't forget communication. If you can't talk about your problems, the relationship will never last.

I was dating my best female friend from childhood before I moved away. It was working out great, and if it would have stayed until after highschool, I probably would have merryed her, but sometimes life just doesn't go your way. I still sometimes go to my hometown and visit all of my old friends sometimes, and even though she has a new boyfriend now, we still hang out when I am in town.

I think you should be friends with who you date. Seems silly not to be, huh? But I guess it really depends on the relationship. Some people want more of a power hierarchy in their relationship, but can still be friends that way. Where as I want an equal partnership kind of deal, so I'd like to hope my partner is my best friend! The kind of person you can be open with.

Beauty fades in time for both men and women.

Women move past birthing age.

Men lose strength with age.

If the man is physically weakened with years and doesn't do the rough "manly" stuff anymore (taking out garbage, cutting down trees, etc.) and the woman isn't pretty and can't bear children anymore, what reason is there to remain together when the utilitarian reasons for a relationship are past? Companionship, love, and camaraderie are the things that make relationships last.

If the person you're dating isn't your best friend, you are WRONG!

It is extremely selfish, shallow and vain to think otherwise.

Your profile says that you're 15. You know as much about marriage as a blind man knows about painting sunsets.

i know that i can determine my own value system without some guy i don't know on the internet patronizing me. i'm sorry if i think that i don't need two rings and some paperwork to tell me that i love someone. my parents never got married, and they're doing alright

You're mixing up cousins with best friends unless, of course, your best friend is your cousin then it would be illegal (except in the south).
