Being Best Friends

Today a married, male co-worker reinforced what I've always believed about relationships. He said that at the end of the day it's not about being just a husband or a wife, but about being best friends. He said that he and his wife are best friends and that it means more to them than being spouses to each other. I thought that was very appropriate being that I've always believed the basis for a good relationship begins with a strong friendship. In fact, I don't think I could have a relationship with someone unless I was friends with them. I think that at the end of the day being friends brings more respect to the relationship than any other thing.
