The main thing, are you and your best friend in love with each other? I think it would be a mistake to marry your best friend just because they're your best friend. However, if the two of you are in love, what better foundation for a marriage than to be friends? I believe a husband and a wife should be friends.

U c I kinda never felt looking at girls that way, i.e I never thought this girl shd be mine. Becoz nearly all the girls are same to me frndz. Basically i never felt anything tingling in belly o make my heart beat fast at any girl. So i guess I never fell in love with anyone. I was until recently my other frnd said "Man if u both ever married it would be a great couple". So i thought ok maybe i shd propose. Is it right or wrng?

If your only reason for getting married is because someone else thinks you'd make a great couple, I don't think that's a good foundation for marriage.

have you even dated at all? A lot of the time people are compatible as friends but may not be compatible as partners. I wouldn't propose to her if you've never been in a romantic relationship

What do you mean exactly? Ofcourse you can get married to you best friend. If the connection is right, and it is a good person and feel attracted to each other, why shouldn't you get married? Some say friendship is in danger when you get married, but is that really true? If you get married, chances our your husband or wife will become (one of) your best friend(s). Nobody in that situation will get a divorce only to maintain the great friendship they have with each other.

I don't think there is a problem with dating/marrying a best friend. It really depends on the relationship. Sometimes friendships can't evolve into romantic relationships. The 2 people should at least 'date' first and determine if they could live together for the rest of their lives as a couple.

Thanks for that but i wish i take this slow and quite and give it more time before dating her. She is kinda of too good for me. But i don't know wther i will fit in with her. I will give it time.

I married my best friend. We met and became friends, and were actually hesitant of dating because we became best friends. But we realized that you could be best friends AND man and wife without problems. Who better to be your best friend than your spouse? You spend so much time with them, it only seems to make sense!

ofcourse. i have s bestfriend which is a guy. we have a condition that when we reach the age of 26 that we both do not have boyfriend/girlfriend then we will commit ourselves in an engagement. For me,marrying your bestfriend(if you both agree) is definitely fine, for you already knew the best and worst sides of you. You have already shown him/her your anger,happiness,success,failure and all. And aside from that, you have a strong foundation which is the friendship that you have built.

You can marry your friend-- All those who are not affected by the syndrome of love at first sight , will have to love a person who is a "Friend"-- and that means their friendship has entered a new and interesting (!) phase. Marriage is just one step ahead of love.. So there is no qualms whatsoever in marrying your friend. friendship is renewed not lost

I would never do this it would ruin the point of a best friend. A best friend is the one you call with problems, you can talk to about anything. If you marry you best friend you would not have anyone else to talk to. If the marriage doens't work, you have ruined a life long friendship.
