My Husband, My Best Friend...I met my husband when I was 19, he was 26. I met him through a guy I was sleeping with (ironic I know). The guy I was sleeping with wanted to "test" me, and see if I would cheat on him. He brought his friend down to meet me; his mistake! We ended up staying up the entire night talking, laughing, sharing, and getting to know one another. He ended up moving in with me shortly after. We were not intimate until years into the friendship, which created some confusion and chaos because I didn't want to lose my best friend (I think thats more of a woman thing, than a male issue). We remained best friends for 7 years, then we married :) We have been married for 13 years. We have grown up together, been through so many life experiences and life lessons together.
But, I do miss my best friend! The one I could share anything with; we are not as close as we were back then. Don't get me wrong, I love him with all my heart, but our years together have changed things. I think couples grow complacent, I think when you are with someone daily, you just naturally get too comfortable.
I've been working on myself, working on what I want out of my marriage, working on learning what makes my husband happy. Learning how people change as they grow older. Learning that you have to put the work into the marriage if you want to reap the rewards.
EP has taught me a lot, and I hope it continues to enlighten me.
I just wanted everyone to know that you can fall in love with your best friend and it can last a lifetime :)
