I’d also venture to say that what’s really happened isn’t that you married your best friend. It’s that you met someone, fell in love with them, and realized that your close bond holds more than romantic feelings and physical attraction. That extra something is mutual respect, appreciation, and enjoyment of each other’s company. The friendship side of the relationship is your growth and evolution as a couple. That’s good enough.
OK, something like that. If some one asks me who is my best friend I say my wife, but when we got married we were barely even friends. We had been dating for about 6 months. For her I was Mr. My-biological-clock-is-ticking-and-he’ll-do. I thought, “I could love this person, she really is good, and if in time I fell out of love, I probably would want to stay together. When I proposed her response was, “Let me think about it.”
Fast forward 30 years. We are still married, we love each other and she is my best friend. I guess there is no one size that fits all as they say nowadays.
