I do not believe that your spouse should be your best friend. Am I wrong in believing what I do?


My wife gets mad when I mention my theory on lovers and best friends, but I tell her that a best friend and a lover have two very different roles. My wife is my friend and much more than my best friend, but who do I talk too if my wife upsets me and she is my best friend? There are more contentions to my argument, but I want to hear what you have to say.

    True, but sometimes you need to vent to someone else besides your partner, right?

    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)?

    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?
