Can a man and a woman remain friends even after marriage?

I want to ask the ladies and gentlemen on this forum if they have been close to a particular friend of the opposite sex before marriage and whether they have managed to maintain the same strong friendship even after they got married or has the intensity dwindled with time?


Depends. If you have secrets, hidden desires that you don't feel comfortable to share with your spouse, are scared of being judged, keep up appearances, friendship is not possible.

It am sure it can be that way if you try to keep it up from day one. But again, ask yourself was he your best friend before marriage? If it was, then you are probably very lucky. But yes, both have to maintain it.

For me Yes, They both can be great friends! The perception needs to be strong and fair!
