Friendship and marriage are two separate things and should not be mingled. With your best friend, you can be just be yourself without any thought about what he (or she) would think as there is total acceptance among friends. But with spouse, you relation is always in danger. Even a small untoward thing can upset the marriage.
friends of both sex have same status but spouce is different he or she may be preferably from similar backgrounds to avoid any conflict due to difference in opinion /culture/status/objective/relations/ etc they can be better friends than husband and wife
In my opinion, a friend can never be a spouse.It just does not work that way. Reason - A good friend does everything you want him / her to do ( without hinting ); and does not expect anything in return.A spouse definitely has expectations. I am married, and I do have good friends. I am not trying to be partial here. It is just that a great friend can be stood up any number of times.And he will still be your friend. You may avoid any number of calls of his, but you still remain a friend when you need him.A spouse, well it is a different issue. You have to create time and space for her.You have to take care of the relationship.You cannot avoid certain things like accompanying her to her friends / family parties. You have to give in to her whims and fancies. Well, it is just that the frequency is different. A friend is a friend. A spouse is a spouse. We should try and not mingle these two.
i do not agree with it.if your best friend is a boy or girl do not lose the purity of friendship thinking in sense of love and marriage.love to a friend and a spouse is different at least from certain angles.may be you'll lose a friend doing so
