"When over the years someone has seen you at your worst, & knows you with all your strengths and flaws, yet commits him - or herself to you wholly, it is a consummate experience. To be loved, but not known is comforting, but superficial. To be known and NOT loved is our greatest fear. But to be FULLY known and TRULY loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficultly life can throw at us."⠀

So go, take on the world together and never underestimate the value the friendship aspect of your intimate relationship holds.
