We have met such couples here and there, the ones which the husbands and wives are best friends before they get married. Before the friendship turns to romance.\u00a0Some might think that is absurd. How can you possibly marry someone who you've already considered a good friend? Many of these couples swear it is the best decision they've ever made.\u00a0But truly, were they making the right decision by putting a ring around their friendship? Here's why some people think so. #1. They know you well already Photo Credit: istockphoto Marrying your best friend can help ease the process of getting to know each other. Obviously, being a good friend to one another will make you understand each other better. Such as what they love and dislike, what are their hobbies and habits, and what type of person they really are. Simply put, they know you well. That is natural as they are not just your friend but your best one. So, as you enter into marriage, you can skip the early phase of getting to know each other.\u00a0This has a lot of benefits to a marriage. If you are a sensitive person, they already know the things that can easily hurt you. So beforehand, they can prevent that and protect your feelings.
