5 Things to Appreciate

I Married My Bestfriend

I married my best friend, and I am beyond thankful to God that I did! Marriage is such a blessing, and I knew it would be amazing and full of love, but who knew how fun it would be? If you just want a reminder of how great it is, or if you are going through a fight with your husband/wife, here are a few things to remember. Maybe — I hope — they help! Let's be thankful and extend our love to them.

1) You Can Be Weird

They have totally accepted the fact that they have married a weirdo and join in on the fun! You guys share a mutual weirdness and sense of humor and may even talk in different accents 99.99 percent of the time. You probably look at each other mostly with weird unnatural facial expressions, but you bond over aspects that connect you and grow from them. Marriage is fun!

2) You Understand Each Other Completely

With one glance, shoulder pinch, or shin kick your wife or husband knows exactly what you mean. This is pretty great when you are too sick to talk in a loud room, or in an awkward social gathering you have no desire to be attending. The magic of husband/wife telekinesis.

3) You Can Be Kids Together

You can pretty much have a slumber party whenever you want. Living room fort? Heck yeah. Ice Cream? Of course. Movie theater popcorn? Why not! You are living with your best friend — have some fun with each other!

4) You Get to Learn Together

Life is crazy and messy and you get to do it all with your best friend right by your side! You have each other through all of life's goods and bads. You get to learn new things about each other and the world, sharing in it all together. You don't have to go through it alone — you get to look forward to your best friend's company every day.

5) You Can Chill Together

You have a mutual understanding that relaxing with each other is pure bliss. Whether it be reading silently near each other, watching television together, or daydreaming together, you look forward to it and the inevitable peace it brings.

Marriage is wonderful, and your spouse is your best friend. Let's remember that and truly appreciate it.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.
