Best friends are best friends because they relate on so many different levels. Neither she nor I had any idea how long we'd been up there but a good dent had been made in the whiskey bottle. I was sitting there with my Bible open on my lap when I had a crazy thought: My husband is here somewhere. I had close platonic female friends before I was married. And then one day God sent you to me; you, my wife, my treasure. I will always appreciate your commitment to me.
I haven't spoken to him in years and that's the way it will stay. Best friends argue and never take it personally. Every time Zeb jumped on his bike, he'd give me a nod, I'd hop on and we'd take off. I can't say the same for ole Zeb. I recently found out my wife L is having an affair with my best friend, P. The sad truth is that a marriage cannot be fixed as long as one spouse is stuck in an affair.
When people ask me how I met my husband, I usually just say, Church. My answer is a little of both. Get to a point where you can be happy with yourself regardless of what happens in your marriage. So, she took matters into her own hands, and when this other man came along, she saw an opportunity to be happy and she took it. Here are 10 signs to help you figure things out: 1. Intimacy isn't a priority — but other things are.
Is your husband really, truly your best friend? A year later, I broke up with my boyfriend of four years and my heart was still tender from both events. If our business blows up and the bank comes for our house and throws the kids out on the street, then I want my best friend, my wife, figuring shit out in the foxhole with me — not my buddy I grab brews with at the bar. It makes me feel lazy — and a little guilty.

I enjoyed my fair share of the hooch but when it came to my wife, I often found myself having to babysit her when we were drinking in public. How do you repair a friendship with someone you can't leave alone with a girlfriend or wife? Even though the wife is her supposed best friend, she spends far more time talking to and texting the husband.
I was starting to get pretty pissed. She calls his wife and her so-called best friend about a quarter as much. So yes, I think she needs Popsicles. Either way, you come out of it a better man. But then, in a split second, Zeb is there with eyes the exact same amber brown as sunshine filtered through a beer bottle. In fact, as the time passed, our body positioning changed to be next to each other instead of face to face, and we conversed as friends do. Give her some water, Zeb advised.
Now, it's more like, Babe, can you shut the door when you pee? There are very few people invited into my home and never can a friend of mine be in my home if I am not there will not happen ever. We are living separately now, each spending time at home while the other is somewhere else. One of their sons, Zeb, was a year younger than me. All together on the couch, we were a tangled mess of arms and legs passing a newly opened bottle of Jim Beam from one thirsty mouth to another. Zeb rode a metallic blue 1976 Harley-Davidson everywhere he went, had a goatee that was a little longer than I thought sanitary and his naturally brown hair was bleached blonde and spiked in a manner not unlike Edward Cullen's -- or Edward Scissorhands', for that matter.

Instead of going into fight-or-flight mode when you sense that you and your guy have rolled into a rut, acknowledge that you've both fallen into an overly comfortable dynamic — and neither one is to blame. A two-ball screwball is a cylindrical frozen treat with two gumballs on the bottom. The next few minutes were as ugly as you'd think. Instead, we need to look for ways to accept the ordinariness of life, even as we respect the mind's natural craving for stimuli.
The only reason she strayed in the first place is because she no longer felt that she could find that happiness in the marriage. I picked her up into the air, both laughing, and sat her down on the edge of the roof. This kind of taking-each-other-for-granted bickering is a sure sign that you feel comfortable enough with your husband-buddy to be kind of a jerk to one another.
