Best Friends Forever

One hears a lot these days about ‘Best Friends Forever’ or BFF. It is an endearing term and speaks of one’s relationship with someone else. That is great!

However, it is usually used by women expressing themselves and their special relationships. (I can’t imagine a man using this phrase towards another man. Ouch!) And what I have noticed is that it is generally never applied to their husbands!

Friends are great to have and build good wholesome relationships with, but the problem with friends of this order is that it is at best temporary. What I mean is that conflict can arise, a move occur, another replaces that friend, etc. and that BFF is no longer.

But, with one’s spouse your relationship is forever. Regardless of conflict, stress and other issues, they remain the one true friend that you have. I am a firm believer that the one BFF relationship you should work on and count dearest is the one with your spouse.

Your spouse should be your best BFF; your constant and preferred companion!

Mine is! Debi, you are my Best Friend Forever!
