Who to marry?
Or at least make your marriage the best friendship you can muster.
There are many quotes on marriage and friendship. And often I hear a couple say, I am marrying my best friend.
In this blog, I gift some quotes that describe some aspects of friendship and marriage.
It is unclear who wrote this piece. It has been attributed to different authors including anonymous…. but the message is sweet.
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly.
Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with.
Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs.
Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them.
Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times.
Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you.
A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark.”
Or as the inimitable writer Neil Gaiman, penned for his friends, Sxip and Coco on their wedding day:
and then neither of you will ever need to be alone again.
And that’s all I know about love.
