I married my best friend

I just saw a commercial for Drew Barrymore's new movie "Going the Distance" with Justin Long.  One of the lines her character says is:  

"the only way you are content in life is if you marry your best friend"

That line got me thinking about my relationship...  We have been together five years, going on six and ...

...he inspires me, he motivates me, he supports me, he is my harshest critic & worst enemy.  He is my best friend.  He knows how to push all my buttons and how to melt my heart. 

I am definitely not suggesting that being married to your best friend will be all rainbows and puffy white clouds against a crystal blue sky 24-7/365.  It won't! Every relationship takes some amount of effort after all.  However, going though life with your best friend at your side "the good will always outweigh the bad" and the ride will be so much more fun!

That's a picture of our engagement tattoo by the way...we custom designed it to signify *home*.

I was lucky enough to marry my best friend too. He left us 01/11/01, but he is still my husband! I will be laid to rest next to him. And the circle will be complete.

Have a wonderful day!

My partner is my best friend and I couldn't ask for more in a relationship. Thank you for reminding me of what a gift that is. Love your blog, I'm now following!

Yes, marrying your best friend is the best way to do it! It makes the good times simply wonderful, and it makes the challenges that every relationship faces, worth the struggle. We are all too often much more forgiving to our girl friends than we are our spouses, so it is always a great reminder that you should be friends with your spouse- BEST friends! Thanks for sharing!

My partner or "husband without signed paper" is my best friend too.
In our case we were friends for several years before we saw each other with "other eyes" and started dating. The only problem was the distance, we spoke every day but we could only see each other once a month, 2 if we were lucky. When the opportunity came we moved together and until now, it's the best thing we could have done :)
