Nothing is better than having a husband who is both your lover and your best friend.
Friedrich Nietzsche once famously said, "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages." And this couldn't be more true; after all, the strongest relationships seem to be those that are built on friendship (hence why so many friendship quotes focus on love).
No, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your husband will enjoy going shopping and getting mani/pedis with you or that you have to enjoy watching football in order to be friends with him. What this does mean is that your romantic bond contains many of the wonderful traits that everlasting friendships do.
The two of you share common interests but also know how to discuss and get past your differences. You know what pushes each others’ buttons as well as what makes one another smile.
Just like the greatest friendships, your relationship is full of trust, respect, honest communication, loyalty, adventure and unconditional love.
You can tell each other anything—even those TMI details that would otherwise be embarrassing. Not only can you make each other laugh (as you often find humor in the same things), you also know how to cheer each other up during a stressful week; this includes knowing when to offer an ear to listen when they want to talk or to give space when they don’t.
But most of all, you enhance each other’s lives. The laughter you share, the problems you endure and the tears you wipe away not only strengthen your bond, but also give you both motivation to become a better person. There's no question that this kind of love built upon friendship is capable of standing against all odds. It’s the kind of love that could last a lifetime.
These quotes are proof of that.
