True, but sometimes you need to vent to someone else besides your partner, right?
True, but I rarely do that, unless the person I am venting to is a person with marriage experience or a counselor. I am not for telling everyone my information, even to vent. People can give you the wrong information.

Your points are well made. What about maintaining balance in one’s life? Is there a risk that a couple might isolate themselves from the world? Is it feasible that your best friend can tell you truths a spouse could not (yep, your butt looks fat)?
Oh sure, I'm all for balance. Guys usually need guy time, Women usually need time out with other women, etc. I'm just a proponent of full and open communication within the marriage.
I agree with full and open communication, but would it surprise you that some Marriage Counselors say that there can be too much communication in a relationship?

I have never told my wife that she is not my best friend in a fight, but your point is valid one.I believe that your best freind and one's spouse play two different roles in one's life. You tell your husband everthing you would tell a best freind?
