Relationship Relationships

Partners/Spouses vs. Friends

For those that are married/partnered, is your spouse/partner your best friend? Do you believe spouses/partners should be best friends in addition to partners?

*Why yes, it has been a few weeks since I actually did one of these.  As I’ve stated, life got even more insane than normal.  I don’t think I’ve had any time “off” even on weekends in almost two months.  For my happy little introverted self who relishes in a day at home to do …

It’s not like I’ve never been to a wedding, but literally, every time I go to one, I have this same conundrum. Devon and I have our friends’, Harold and Mandi’s wedding …
