My husband and I have found our marriage has grown immensely stronger since we have become friends. I remember a time when while I loved my husband, I really did not like him very much. The reason for that was we were not friends. We hurt each other unwittingly all the time. When we made the quality decision to nurture a friendship with each other, our marriage grew stronger.
It takes work to build a friendship however, it is well worth the work involved and over time, your spouse can become your best friend. My husband is the one I laugh with, cry with, play with and share secrets. We enjoy time spent apart with our other friends however, we have found nothing compares to the time we spend together.
