A lot of times when I attend weddings, the brides talk about how thrilled they are that they are marrying their best friend. I love that, the idea that you are marrying someone that you couldn’t imagine life without.
What I have also observed is that often times after they get married, things change. It’s like all the work spent on becoming best friends… well it’s like they no longer put the effort, after all, the guy will always be there. I love the idea of marrying my best friend, but I want my husband to even become my “bester” friend after we get married. Yeah everyday may not be like an awesome slumber party with your bestie, but everyday can be sweet. Because you will be with someone who truly loves you and totally accepts you for who you are, all your failings, all your mistakes, all your tears, and you’ll finally learn how truly love another person, despite their failings and imperfections.
I pray that my future spouse and I will always be best friends. That if we ever feel someone coming before our relationship, of if we ever feel like we would rather talk to or spend time with anyone else, that we would talk about it immediately. I pray that we will guard our relationship so vigilantly, and that we will always desire each other above all else. I pray that we will have healthy friendships with people of the same gender, and healthy associations with people of opposite genders, but that no matter what, we are always delighted, ecstatic, and thrilled to go back home to our best friend, because we can’t wait to hear about whatever it is they want to share…And we couldn’t imagine life without them. Amen.
I would like to hear from you: Talk to me.
