Friendship goals with your partner is now easy!
Whether arranged marriage or love marriage, we all need our partner to share a great friendship with us. Many a times, it becomes easy for the couples who have been with each other for many years before marriage. If you and your bae are schoolmates or college friends, the deal comes without much effort. But, what if you met your partner only a few times that too in the shade of parents, before marriage? Looks difficult? You can still have an amazing chemistry with your husband and make him choose you as his best friend. Here are some tips:
# Time decides
Never blame your partner or yourself for not giving each other sufficient time. Take the initiative and make some quality time. There should be some fixed time everyday dedicated solely for you and your partner without any interference. This will help you both understand each other better. If you really want to, you will be able to find this time despite of both of yours busy schedules.
# Being nice is a good idea
Will you shout at your girlfriend/ boyfriend the way you do to your partner? You will try to calm down first before discussing something. You will compromise a lot and try to be as sweet as possible. But, when it comes to your partner, you tend to take things for granted and pay very little attention to emotions.
#Know each other's interests
You both need to know the hobbies and interests of each other. Having fun together is the key. The highlight of every friendship is common interest. The likes and dislikes or besties will be almost same. This is what lack in a marriage. But, you can find out common hobbies and enjoy them together to make your partner closer to you.
#Say Sorry first
After a fight, make sure you are the first one to say Sorry. If you see that your partner has done something special for you, appreciate it. Thank you can take you to places where you have never thought of. Vulnerability will help to cement the friendship and when you are best of friends, you won't waste a single moment of happiness together.
#Love the people he loves
You may not like all his friends or family members. You may even hate some of them due to your possessiveness. But, if you want to make your partner your best friend, you will need to be more mature and sensible with his relationships. You have to love them all, whom he loves or at least show so, in front of him. Respect all the relationships of your partner and he/she will do the same.
# Never force
You should never force your partner to be friends with you or compare yourself with his/ her friends. Friendship should happen naturally and you can only try. You should give each other the space and time. This will ensure that your partner becomes comfortable with you and that is the main key to a great friendship.
