Hey guys, what do you feel is more important and more divine in life. Is the relationship of friendship or love? Which is the most important for a person. And who should be given more importance, one's lover or one's friend?

well, I think both two are important but I think friendship is more divine for friendship is a thing that could last more longger. I say this because, If you have a lover, you also had a friend in her and because of that they exist both on the same time but when love fades, still friendship will prevail than of anything else. the two are susceptible to be broken by other feelings like disloyalty, mistrust, etc. if love broke because of that It'll never be thesame again as it was before, but friedship is another thing that could reign even of those other negative feelings if there is this magic word "sorry", for love? It is also applicable but love has a higher power than sorry that is why sorry cannot heal it all, but friendship? may be lesser but is flexible that can manipulate the power of the magic word and eventually can turn things as it was way before.

If i am student time, i will prefer friendship. Friends will help us when we are in diffcult and teach us the way to solve our problems if my lover's age is elder than me. After finish my school time, that mean do not have free time go out to have a drink with friends, hence the friendship will be loosen. Hence, lover is more important to us. He will accompany when you are in sadness or in happiness. For me, friendship and lover are both important to me. Although i am working already, sometime my friends and i will made a date to have a drink for a chit chat or go to karaoke. We will go out together with our lover too.

i think both are equally important in life, real love is unconditional but i dont think we can say that real friendship is unconditional, friendship is nothing but a give and take arrangemnet, some times it happens knowingly some times unknowingly, it can be equated to love if its happening unknowingly, when it is happening knowingly it can be called a friendship of conveniance. so i feel the importance should always go to your partner coz they are the one who will really stay with you through thick and thin.

Friendship is driven by benefits and Love is driven by sacrifices. My answer for which one is divine, definitely goes for LOVE. Just matter-of-fact in LOVE there is friendship element, otherwise friendship does not necessarily bonded with love element, just like to have it with certain features or characteristic.

I feel that friendship is more divine in life. The relationship between two persons that is of the friendship is always long lasting and it is free from any sort of selfish motives. Ofcourse love may be selfish, due to attraction, just because you stay together, work together and not because you like each other's company. Whereas for having the relationship of frendship it is necessary that they like eachother, they are ready to let go so many things for the sake of this relationship. Sacrifices are rare in love but in friendship you find more devotion and sacrificies.

In my opinion, the answer will be different in different situation. when we are in school,most of us will think that friend is more important,but when we enter the society ,most of us will find a lover.Because he or she will take care of us .They will still stay with us when we are in trouble and also they will share our happiness. But most men would turn to their friends for help when they are in trouble instead of asking her lover for helping.But i do not think this means that in their hearts they think their lovers are less important than friends .
