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)
