Marry Your Best Friend

marry your best friend

“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark.”

  1. Bestfriend is your ideal person ,you love the company, the sense of humor, interesting flaws and assets…selfishness, and everything he or she do, unless you step someone else along the way, it is a good idea.

  2. Love isnt love without friendship.

    You can find love in a day, as long as friendship is present. Even if both are spontaneous.

    Have you ever smelled a flower for the first time?

  3. I married my childhood love. We have been together for 24 years of my 39 on this earth. He is my soul mate. I do not say this lightly. We have been through more than our share of bad times and have came through stronger than before. We have also had the most amazing, most memorable times creating and raising a beautiful family. We beat the odds that said young love can't possibly last, your too young to know what love is. We are love, we are what love looks like. Love looks like my son coloring at the table after school. Follow your heart not the advice of others, your heart speaks to you for a reason.

  4. Absolutely ! I remember watching a movie – not that nice a watch, but it had something real nice to say, What is a marriage all about ?
    the answer was something, that really made sense to me.
    We all are individuals on earth, living our own story – but we need someone to notice, to acknowledge our presence, our journey. This is where the role of marriage comes.
    I totally agree with this

  5. I married my best friend. We were awesome lovers as well. He was my knight in shining armor. I lost him three years ago to a massive stroke. Life is just not the same.

  6. A relationship that started as friendship will definitely be a million times stronger than the contrary.. Because you've kept certain borders, respected them for long and when you get to cross the borders of friendship to the next level, you value it even more…

  7. Life is to short to search!! Just embrace life , if god wants that then he will have to granted! Quit wishing upon stars, that one see truth of happiness, truth be told fear will that one back from their happiness !

  8. 32 years w/my best friend. We've laughed a lot and we've crossed through the dark deep waters. There have been times when we both thought "There is no way to find any humor in this situation!" but somehow way down the road we always do. There is nothing sexier in the world than sharing a good knee slapping, snorting, tears streaming laugh w/your DH. 🙂

    1. The Minds Journal I agree…call me a dreamer:), but I want it all…to be my best friend, those same characteristics would set the stage for the ideal lover.

  9. You are totally describing my honey my very best friend my soulmate in t he whole wide world yes I would gladly marry him in all churches in the world… I love my best friend CMD so muchhhhh:-) 🙂 🙂

  10. Well, I have spent a lifetime (I am 53) wandering thru life, removing the old, broken messages about love that were wrong and unrealistic..trying to understand the true essence and value that love can bring to each of us, embracing the realization that it must stem from a deep and robust friendship based on respect and compassion, finally concluding that it is love that makes us human, makes us alive and makes us worthy of old age…this has been my quest…I dream someday of embracing that "holy grail" in whatever form he takes.

  11. If you don't have qualities mention above then you don't have a best friend that you can be with in that way. Comments contrary to this… Well all I can say is go make friends and open your mind, life is all about being happy and content. If you get knocked down, get back up!!. Don't be bitter, let it be a experience that you will learn from. If life was easy, you wouldn't appreciate the good. You need the bad to balance what is worth while and realise what you have..

  12. Love is so overrated! Some-one is making a hell of a lot of money in the process – however! Companionship or friendship definitely longer lasting and worth their weight in gold!

    1. there is love in companionship and friendship…but if you add that incredible passion with it…trust…faith…love…and replace i with we or us….nothing more beautiful!
