My opinion for what it is worth, if you marry your best friend, you will have a pretty happy marriage. I am not saying you will not have arguments and I am not saying it is fool proof, but if you are best of friends to start off, you have a lot going for you .
Romance, that lasts maybe a year or two. Some friendships last a lifetime.

Most friends avoid getting married. Is that not true? People marry those with who they are romantically attached.

You have a point about marrying best friend.

Hi Sallyann,

I married my best friend. In the rough times, it has been our friendship that has seen us through.

You were not romantically linked?

I married my best friend and it lasted about a year. We had a great friendship but romantically it was a disaster.

So the marriage is over?
Did absence of romance do that?

Unless the timing and loss of desire/romance is mutual it is disastrous for the relationship, especially if there was/is no strong friendship/respect.

I was young when we met. There was a bit of something more but we developed the connection into a friendship first. I think the rest deepened due to that.

But there was an undercurrent of romance?

That really depends on what you mean by romance.

We felt a connection, a belonging together. Our friendship grew from that.

Physically, I was not what my husband was normally attracted to. For example, when we met, my husband's preference was for tall women with dark hair. I am short with blonde hair. I think my looks grew on him, lol.

Had their been no spark for more than friendship then we never would have decided to marry. But the way we communicate and interact sometimes even today is more like how friends do and that foundation has been good for us.

Am I explaining this in a way that makes sense?
