Wise Guide: on love

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
--Friedrich Nietzsche

I agree! My husband is my best friend; the only friend with whom I've ever been able to be completely myself. I think that the two other big relationships of my life lacked maturity and respect. It's hard to navigate your own life when you're out on your own for the first time, much less a relationship! And if you don't respect the person that you're with, or you aren't respected by them, well....

I think in a past relationship of mine it was a lack of my space! I was young and didnt need someone to crowd me all the time, blowing up my phone driving me nuts! My current relationship I love because we have a great friendship, he is my best friend

I agree my hubby is my best friend and I can't talk to anyone else in the world the way I talk to him or say the things I can say to him.

That's a great quotation! One of the things I love most about my boyfriend is that he is one of my best friends. We've lived together for 4 years and never tire of each others company. He has a great sense of humour and we love to laugh together. Romance is great, but so is being able to support each other through the ups and downs of life.
