Really just a poll, i'm just curious. Title says it all.
Are you friends, more than partners- like to be around each other- enjoy each other outside of just being parents together?
Or, not so much but you make it work.

My husband and I were best friends for 6 years before being together was even a thought, and we enjoy all the time we get to spend we'd rather do stuff together/as a family than go out. We also rarely ever fight, but I think that has a lot to do with the fact that we know each other well enough to know when to let go and move on or leave the situation alone for a while.

I have been with my best friend for fifteen years. Everyone is different but I don't feel u can have a good working relationship that doesn't have a basis of friendship. I mean I still have my childhood best friend who is a girl but my husband has always been there for me

We're best friends.
SO tells me a lot that we're best friends. We can lay in bed (if we're not tired) and talk about everything for hours. Last time we did that, we talked until 2 AM and we've been together about 4 years.
We talk about all sorts of things all the time.
When we don't have the kids we go play paintball together, go to the movies, out to eat, hiking.

He's my best friend. I don't think I would be here or have three kids with him if he weren't. He knows a whole side of me that nobody else does.

Grr just ripped out stuff and my net went dead. He is my best friend. I love being around him most of the time (everyone gets annoying to me at times lol). I wouldnt be married to him for just Co parenting.

Best friends. I could not be with someone who wasn't. We prefer to be around each other and don't really "need" anyone else.

We have our moments but we enjoy doing things together, and we have a lot in common. I'd consider us really good friends, not best friends because we both have a best friend prior to meeting each other and I personally feel there's only 1 best friend per person lol. I'd say we are awesomely close friends :)

I clicked "he's my best friend" but only because the next option is "we get along ok".

We get along great, but my best friend is a woman I've been best friends with for..damn. Like 16 or 17 years. He's for sure not my Best Friend, but we do get a long great and he's really cool, no offense to him for not being my BFF-just that...that spot was taken before he came into the picture.

He is indeed my best friend. I think we're better at being friends than husband and wife and I'm sure he agrees.
