Friendship is better than marriage-
in different scenarios but same question:
When you meet someone and realise in time he /she maybe the life partner that you are looking for, but he /she may not be available or in a circumstance to marry you..
Would you choose to remain friends if marriage is not possible?
But if you do that it might jeopardise his/her marriage or your own because you realise it is the sort of dangerous friendship which might develop to an illegitimate liaison?
Some people make better friends than spouses..but if you reject them as spouse , they walk away and refuse to be a friend..what then?
BUt even if the marriage fails..is it not better to remain friends ..at least for the kids' sake..
A good husband /wife should be a friend for life ...
the companion through the storms and fine weather..
Wow! Finally something I can be a mentor on -- something everyone does what they want to do, anyway!
Hey, I was a very bright young lady from a great family. I dated only the best and believed, wholly, that the one I married would be my best friend. I married that man when I was 29. He's still my best friend. But, unfortunately, a friend is not a husband.
Be careful of categorizing too much. All that you say has true merit. Just, listen to your heart.
As much as marriage seemd to be the pinnacle of a relationship for many...it is having that best friend that is the seed to a lasting relationship...marriage would fall into place, but shouldn't have sooo much emphasis....
Ostara, very good?...I think the person that you are going to marry and live with is going to be your best friend or why bother. To laugh with, to play with, to cry with, who understands you, who can finish your sentence or even understand your sentence when one of you screw your words up. If you don?t have that, what?s the point of getting married? You can just get a partner to play with.
Hmmm..... intriguing. This is a very interesting topic to me as I am dodging the marriage draft at the moment. Maybe that's because I actually haven't found the right one. But I think I'm afraid someone if going to smother my independence. On the otherhand, I DON'T want a pushover. I need someone who can challenge me.... have you ever met someone that you could listen to a song with and not even need to say a word. That's powerful!
I'm looking for friends who have similar interests. I'm professional educated in cigong, yoga, astrology and want to create foundation in memoriam to one my friend and teacher - very famous russian astrologist and not only...
Need to do many good thing in this earts...
Ask me : ))))
Well, i have to say, friendship is a good start anyways! Marrige sometimes ruines that, friendship is unconditional, without reserve or judgement. I'm looking forward to a friendship i might be able to have and to hold ,on here. And! i'm not paying for that!
Friendship is the foundation of all relationship. The marriage vows we take often apply aptly to friends too. In sickness and in health , for richer or for poorer, real friends stick by you..or at least when they split they won't be taking half your assets..and often they outlive and outlast marriage and spouses..
So this MM site should be one for friendship first before anything else..
When I think of friends, I think of laughter, adventures, sticking together through tough times, helping out in times of crisis, warm, secure feelings, mutual respect, a sincere desire to bask in one another's company...yes, friendship! Bring it on.
What better way to make a Love Relationship even better. Why don't more people observe the rules of friendship in their love relationships, ya reckon?
I endured a painful breakup, yet was told that we should remain friends. hmph. Friends don't do certain things to another, ever. This time, I want a friend first...Lover second.
