What are your thoughts about a couple that are best friends? I think its a great ground point, but I want to hear others thoughts. Last night my bf of 5 years turns to me and says "Do you think other couples are as much best friends as we are?" I mean it sounds good to me, but for some reason the way he asks sounds like he's doubting its a good thing.

It is definitely a good thing. Best friends can confide in each other and enjoy each other's company. Being a couple is not just about loving someone, I think friendship is a very big part of it. I can't imagine being in a relationship with someone who is not also my best friend.

Very good point, I would just hate to think he's worried about it being real love when we're such best friends also. I love it, but he thinks too much :)

It is definitely a good thing. It means you have a more secure relationship, you are able to talk to the person freely and less fights... He may be doubting it as he may feel he has things he needs to talk about that you won't understand, but that is only my opinion on the matter.

I think couples that are best friends are good things, not bad things. It helps you two confide in each other and support each other when things aren't looking so good. I think it makes it easier to talk to each other when you're so close. I don't see anything wrong with being friends and lovers.

I think it can be good and bad. Good because you guys can be that close with eachtoher and trust eachother that much. But alot of people think its bad becuase if (god forbid) there was ever a break up, not only would you lose your significant other, but also your best friend.

My husband and I are best friends. Soulmates, I like to call it. We're very much in love with each other, but it's deeper than even that. We think the same thing at the same time, say the same thing at the same time, and generally know what the other is thinking most of the time. I think it's wonderful to have your significant other be your best friend who will be by your side in almost any situation. But if he or I disagree with something, we will talk about it. That's what best friends do. We have a very open communication stemming from our friendship that is a wonderful asset to have in any marriage.
