Which one do you think will last longer in your life? Your friends or your partner(can be boy friend or girl fried,husband or wife)? In my opinion, I think life partner will last longer in our life. After all, he or she will be the one in our life and accompany us till the end of our life. Friends do lasts forever in our life but they cannot be there forever for us when we need them or when we are in trouble. Some how,when we have grown up, everyone will start to have own life,family and career to busy of. It's hardly to see a friend who is always there for us. Do you agree with me? Please share.

Hi. I guess both of them. I am not in a relationship for the time being and has never been in one, so I can't tell you what it is exactly like but I have always thought that your life partner has to be a real good friend of yours to be able to live with you for the whole life. Without friendship there can't be a successful relationship between any two persons.

I would agree with you! Life partner will last longer. Friends will have their own life, they might not be around you after a certain period. Your life partner is the personwho is staying with you from time to time, except something happened and caused divorcity.

I would say it is depending on alot of factors. Divorce is not unheard of in this day in age and so if that was to happen I would say the friend would last longer. However if the partner and you stay together forever, well there is the answer to that the partner. However I do believe you can have that 1 or 2 special friend that too can be with you for life. It is true that you can outgrow anyone thou in life, friend or partner if you dont work on the relationships.

i have a hetro life mate. i met her in junior high and we have been friends ever since. there is alot of things that she and i agree on and the like however we are both comminted to someone else. and we both have families to take care. she will call me out of the blue for no reason what so ever just to say hey. and it is the same for me. i remember that when she got her boobies done she called me up and told me. at the time i lived in california and the only thing i could think of to say was "i bet that hurt". it is more than friends, yet we dont swing that way.

I think that life partners last longer than friends. Theres no doubt that friends are the most important people than anything else. But as the name suggests life partners last longer. Life partners are meant to be those with whom we want or can share our whole life with. Life partners are meant to be only one but friends may be many. Some may be in one place of the world and some, in the other than where we are. So i think that life partners last longer.

your life partner will be the last longer, because they mantain the relatinship with heart and love, they never left you alone. You also keep this relation with your partner.

yes,i agree with you. when we are young,we need friends more than our soul mate.But when we grow up,we have to start our family,our friends also have to begin their families ,so we may have little time staying with our dear friends.I think good friends can be thousands miles apart if the two hearts really get together.In the deep winter,everything tends to shrivel,while the flower of friendship stands there bloom fragrantly as it is watered with love.

I agree with you. Now my bestfriend did not communicate with me after we graduated from college. I really miss him. There are times that memories will flashback.

Like wise a partner in life. Why? Cause she will understand you and be with you all the time to listen and to appease you with everything. A friend will just be their when they need you, not all the time they can be with you and listen to you. A lifetime partner can accept you for what you are and for what your gonna be. A life time partner will stay with you through out. Have a nice day!

Don't think anyone's has said this but, "Bros over hoes". I think it depends on the person, I'm really close with my friends, and we've been through heaps together, but I can't say the same for my girlfriend.

that should be life partner. or your special someone, or husbands, or wives. i dont know, well, i know it's not the same for everyone, but in my case, i think that's my boyfriend whom i'll be marring two years from now. my boyfriend is my bestfriend, and i can tell him anything, everything to him. And that's why we are happy together. so it's really best if you see your life partner as a friend. then you can have both lasting forever!:)

Hi yenwie I think you can have both. If your partner is genuinely your soulmate and you have friends since high school it really is possible. At present though I would have to say friends because when my abusive marriage came to end, my friends were still there for me when I needed them even though we hadn't been as close while i was married. Take care

In my own opinion,I think friends will last longer.We don't tend to have just a friend.Several of them exist in our life.This is an advantage over a life partner that is just a single entity.Two heads,they say are better than one.It is only when we have serious problem,and friends come around us, that we know the value of surrounding ourselves by people who care. Two or three friends can not die at the same time,unless it is predestined,but a life partner can leave without notice.May be painful,but that is the reality of it all. Again,many a relationship may not really work out as planned with life partners as many divorce cases in court has shown in recent times.But,we hardly have so much trouble with "our friends"to the extent of going to court.So,friends are deemed to last longer!
