I used to get these wedding invitations or engagement announcements that said something like, "I'm going to marry my best friend," etc., and I used to laugh.
I don't anymore.
I got remarried last year and my wife is my best friend. She always has my best interests at heart, will defend me no matter what, and is always there to listen and support.
I know that's sappy, but ....
I have some other close friends, but no one I would fully confide in, and no one I would completely depend on.
"That's the fastest-running, slowest-walking guy I've ever seen."
