Tag 12: Marriage Vs Friendship

I believe it is very important to be friends with a person you are marrying to. Friendship brings informality and hence closeness and understanding. However, talking about that I am not rigid about having just one best friend in life – that is one’s spouse.

Life is an amazing journey and every person who comes along contributes to you something wonderful and meaningful. So if a woman has a best female friend in life doesn’t mean she can’t have the same rapport with her man or by having a close female friend she is committing some sort of injustice to her man. All relationships carry their own places in life.

I believe every person needs a breather in life. Being stick to your spouse all the time for everything isn’t fair.

My two cents! You can disagree πŸ™‚

    I can’t imagine a marriage without friendship? What would be the point? I have hundreds of friends, but if I thought the people who live under my roof are not my best friends in the whole wide world, I’d be very sad.

    I agree on that – Of course you can have a female best friend if you are a woman – I believe that you should not have a man as your best friend if you are a woman. The only best friend you have who is a man should be your husband. πŸ™‚

    I dont think my husband would like it if I was best friends with another man. πŸ™‚ For that reason only, I never made a best friend in a man before my husband and since he is now my only male best friend+spouse, I think I made right decision in life. πŸ˜› I always eat all his sweets too. πŸ˜›

    I also would not mind him keeping in touch with his other female friends, but I always like to be his only female “best friend” – male best friends he has many. I am ok with that as they are like my brothers. πŸ™‚

    Most of the time, when a man has a female best friend, she is not like his sister – neither can a woman have a male best friend really like a brother. An attraction is always there and that is what worries the spouse. 😐

      Oh well I believe that a man and woman can never be just best friends πŸ˜›

      Here I am of the view that my male best friend other than hubby could
      be my real brother πŸ™‚

      Don’t we always tend to agree on things? πŸ˜›

      Why is that? πŸ˜› You seem to be the only person in the world I never disagree with – πŸ˜›
