its so hard to summarize why i think marrying someone you consider your best friend is the only way to be happy. i have always been able to be myself around him. i’ve never had to pretend to like something i didn’t just so he’d like me. conversation comes easily. we laugh a lot. we love to do things together and he’s endlessly supportive of my choices in life. if you can’t call your significant other your best friend then you might want to reconsider a lifetime commitment.
