How To Best Be Friends with Your Spouse.

The ultimate goal of your marriage is that you and your spouse become best of friends, an intimate relationship or better still a covenant relationship. This Is what marriage is meant to be. We have to find a common ground of friendship  where we truly love and like ourselves.  That’s why we always advise you marry your friend. 

Some of us were not really friends before they got married while some others lost their friendship along the way in marriage. Life happened to them and the very basis for their friendship was eroded. Others could not manage their differences, and as such lost their friendship. Yet others allowed third parties come between them.

Our friendship as couples is meant to last till death do us part.

Pro 18:24 (MSG)
Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.


Pro 18:24 TPT)  
Some friendships don’t last for long, but there is one loving friend who is joined to your heart closer than any other! 

We are supposed to stick together for life.

Here are some tips that will help you build friendship with your spouses and become best friends. We must show ourselves friendly if we must have our spouse as our friend. {Pro18:24)

How To Best Be Friends with Your Spouse

  1. Spend a lot of time together and learn how to start and sustain conversations. Friendship is spelt time together doing activities together and communicating. Stay as much as possible and keep in touch through text, calls, chats etc. and also enjoy each other’s company.
  1. Forgive easily, quickly and completely

Pro 17:9 CEV  You will keep your friends if you forgive them, but you will lose your friends if you keep talking about what they did wrong.

  1. Do activities you both enjoy together. Do what you both enjoy doing. Eat out, walk together, watch movies, go sight seeing.
  1. Be each other’s cheer leader. Let your spouse always feel like a million bucks. Don’t pull your spouse down.
  1. Be vulnerable with each other. Encourage open conversations.
  1. Accept each other’s flaws. Roses have thorns, if you focus on the thorn you will not enjoy and appreciate the fragrance of the rose.
  1. Don’t focus on each other’s weaknesses. Stop drawing attention always to your spouse’s weaknesses. Give them time to grow and trust God to work on them.
  1. Encourage each other during tough times. Be the support system for them, always be there for them.
  2. Don’t be a boss or be domineering. Respect each other’s feelings, boundaries and personality differences
  3. Be honest. Give your sincere opinion or correction in love

This is How To Best Be Friends with Your Spouse. God bless our marriages.
