I remember during a pre-wedding seminar we attended, husband (my fiancé then) and I were advised to have couple friends. They should be different from your friends when you were still single and dating, we were told. The purpose I can no longer recall. We do have couple friends now. We do things together, such as swimming, running and eating out. Like earlier today, we went out for dinner, and they accompanied us when we bought light bulbs and chief mounts. Even our kids enjoy their company when we hit the malls.
I’d like to think we also have “family” friends such as our MBAP/Bebots/Twitterafia group. Yes, initially, friendships were among us moms, but it extended to the husbands too, and now the kids. The group will be celebrating its 5th anniversary this November. Though, I’m still waiting for my husband and kids to “warm up”. Yeah, they’re still warming up even after 5 years! Hahaha.
