Many long lasting couples describe each other as best friends, but in many cases that comes as their relationship grows and matures. So what about if your love is your best friend? Should you marry them?
Here are some reasons why the answer to that is a resounding yes.
The first reason is plain and simple; there isn’t a much bigger form of love than somebody who is not only your partner but your best friend too. Put a ring on it and lock it down!
You trust your best friend implicitly, with all the elements of your life, and that trust is doubled when your best friend is also the love of your life. There isn’t a greater trust in the world.
3. Shared Goals
If you have enough in common with somebody for them to be both your partner and your best friend, then it is pretty likely that you are going to share a number of important life goals.
4. Shared Morals
The beauty of best friends is that they are often on the same page in terms of morals and beliefs, so this is a perfect foundation for entering in to a long and happy marriage.
5. Shared Interests
You have things you love to do apart but there's a laundry list of things you love to do together.
You respect each other, both in terms of personal space but also in terms of things like religious beliefs, which can be very important when it comes to arranging a wedding.
Real best friends can have super heated arguments and then immediately forget about it the minute afterwards, and it is this kind of openness and ability to not hold a grudge that is needed in a marriage.
8. Parenting Goals
Best friends can have similar types of personalities, and this will prove to be really handy should you decide to have children because you will want to raise them in the same way.
9. Different Sides
It is quite common for a woman to show a different side of her personality to her friends compared to her lover, but when those roles are played by the same person, you get to share you entire self all at once!
10. Be Yourself
There is absolutely no pretense or awkwardness in being in a relationship with your best friend; they already know everything about you so you don’t have to pretend to be someone else.
Having a lover who is also your best friend means that you feel attraction on two sides: both the physical side and the personality side. That is a dream combination and one set for happy marriage!
There is no chance of an awkward rift between you and their family because you have been to hundreds of events as a best friend at this point and they already love you.
13. Can’t Imagine
At this point, you literally can’t imagine your life without your best friend and partner. If you don’t ever want to be without them, then show the world by having a great wedding!
14. Live Your Dream
Admit it, even before you actually got together you always thought that your best friend might be the one you ended up with. Now that you have the chance, go ahead and live your dream!
15. No Judgement
Just like best friends do, you can talk to him without the fear of being judged for what you say, and this is a vital part of having a long and successful marriage.
16. Feel Your Best
You feel like your absolute best self when you are with this person, so wouldn’t you want to make that a feeling that lasts for the rest of your life?
17. Constant Mentions
You find that you talk about them all the time, and when I say all the time, I mean linking a story about them to every single topic that comes up when talking with friends!
18. Long Term Plans
When you look back on your life, you realize that they have always been a part of your long-term plans in one way or another, and marriage feels like the final step.
19. Shared Happiness
You both agree that you feel your very happiest when you are with one another, and what better way to secure permanent happiness than to get married and seal the deal?
20. No One else Will do
You can’t imagine that anybody else will be as good for you as your best friend, and you think the exact same thing about them!
21. Simply - Because It Feels Right
Your gut tells, your heart tells you and even your head tells. It's so so right. You were meant to be together.
