Think about your best friend – what makes that friendship last? Is it the jokes you share? The adventures you go on? The long phone calls where you catch up even though you spoke just 2 days before? Is it all of it? The thing that keeps the two of you by each other’s sides through any struggles, arguments, heartbreaks, and losses is the bond of friendship you share. Now, why should your relationship be any different? People overlook how important being friends with your partner is for your relationship to succeed.
