Many people have the fantasy of getting hitched to their best friend. That union of closest friends in holy matrimony is the marriage of a fairy tale. As the saying goes, make friends before you fall in love. And that friendship is the foundation of happy marriages. You might have overheard someone mention how they wed their best friend, or you might even have suggested it. Well, I wouldn’t argue that many people do because I didn’t wed my best friend. We weren’t best friends when my wife and I got married, but we were close. In actuality, before our relationship became serious, we were probably better friends. The dynamics changed a little, but I’m glad to report that our friendship was eventually revived. Here are three ways to make your dream of marrying your best friend a reality. Being friendly is something we stress to our children as we teach them how to make friends and network. You will draw in other friendly people if you are friendly yourself. The same rule holds true for our marriages. In marriage, you will almost always get back what you put into it. We must act as the friends we want our wives to act if we want to be married to our best friends. We should pay attention to our wives if we want them to listen to us. We should prioritize our spouses’ needs if we want them to prioritize our needs as well. The list is endless. Being the kind of friends we want in our wives is the first step to developing a strong friendship in marriage.
