Why My Husband is My Best Friend

It's day 2 of #loveblog and the topic is best friends. I can't tell you how many ideas I had for this topic. It took me a lot of thinking before I finally settled on a topic. I do think you'll like the one I chose...


I want to start this post with a simple question for you to think about.

Who says you only get one best friend?

Please note that this isn't meant to be a sappy post. I never quite understood when people referred to their spouses as their best friend until I was married. Now I understand it all too well and thought I would take this post as an opportunity to reflect on the concept.

Before I started this post, I went looking for a definition for "best friend." Guess what? There's not one. I did find one for friend though - "a person who you like and enjoy being with." Unfortunately, this definition didn't help me much so I decided to create my own definition as I explain why my husband is my best friend.

A best friend is...

Someone you like spending time with.
Spending time with my husband makes me happy. I cherish the moments we get to spend together, whether we're curled on the couch or out being adventurous.

Someone who supports you.
My husband has supported me in every crazy idea I've come up with - even the ones he wasn't so sure about. He even gives me new ideas (like this blog) that he knows will make me happy.

Someone you can count on.
He's there for me all the time - even when he's out to sea. I feel secure in knowing that my husband will always be there for me when I need him, even if it's emotionally rather than physically.

Someone you miss when they're not around.
Do I really need to go into this one? We spend plenty of time apart and I definitely miss him when he's not around.

Someone you can be yourself with.
He has seen every quirky side of me - right down to the side that sings along to songs I don't know. He may find some of my ways odd but he enjoys them anyways.

Someone who will love you unconditionally.
A best friend is there for you in your good times and your bad times. They don't judge unless it's needed.

Someone special.
Yep. He must be someone special in order to live with me. I moved across the country just to be with him - that's no light commitment.

Someone you include in all of your plans.
What's a party or adventure without your best friend? You can bet he's included in all of the plans (when he's home).  You can also bet that he helps me come up with some of the plans.

I could probably keep going because a best friend is one of the most important people in your life. I don't believe in having just one best friend though. My best friends span the country and help support me on a daily basis - especially when my husband isn't around.

Do you consider your husband one of your best friends? Why or why not?

  1. I think the idea of someone you can be yourself with is so important with a friend. There aren't that many people where I feel like I truly am myself, but my best friends (my husband included) are definitely on that list.

    And just letting you know, I'm stopping by from the #LoveBlog link-up!

  3. I definitely have multiple best friends! I don't really think of my husband as one of them, but I never considered either of my parents one of my best friends either. For me, a spouse is above the best friend level, so I just never to think to claim him as a best friend. I feel the same way about my dad, and I felt the same way about my mom before she died.

  4. This is amazing!! I definitely consider my husband my best friend, not only because we are married, but because we were best friends for almost 10 years before we got together.

  10. I never ever believed in these blank ATM cards so i have always been reluctant to try purchase the blank ATM card online because i know for a fact there are fake hackers out there, but i was convinced that it really works when a very close friend at my place of work got the card & we confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go, so i contacted mitchbourne(@)cyberservices.com who helped my friend out, since then i have been able to do alot of personal jobs with him like, Whatsapp conversation, Facebook, Icloud, emails,He does all sort of hacks,He also doesn't request for money first until he has proven to you he is capable of the job and you will be satisfied before sending any cash to him, and the amazing part is he also works with Proofs. I'm glad for his help.

  12. You are an amazing family, and your life story taught me a lot. After I stopped suspecting my wife it took several years to forgett about it, since then our family has grown stronger, and I have abated my jealousy as best I could. But just in case, I downloaded the mobile tracker hoverwatch.com to her smartphone, because I really love her and I'm afraid that someday she will cheat me and leave ...
