My SO is my best friend. I guess that makes my wife a double loser.

Why cant you stop being a pedantic weirdo and just call your wife your best friend, OP?

Yeah, I think I'm just using best friend in a way different to most other people. Obviously the person I have the most in common with and want to spend the most time with is my SO. But I don't want to spend 24/7/365 with her, and she doesn't want that either, we're still two separate people. So if I'm not spending time with her my next choice is probably going to be the person I call my best friend.

I think this best friend poo poo is pointless labeling. If your spouse is not the person you'd want to spend the most time with out of everyone you know then you hosed up.

That's how my wife & I roll at least. We have our own friends & interests of course but we spend most of our social time with each other. Coronapocolypse hasn't added any stress to the marriage, even as we raise a newborn together.

Pretty much exactly this, minus the newborn. I love how many goons have good marriages.

I can talk to my best friend once a month and its cool. If my wife goes away for business for more than 1 night or so I get bummed out even though Ill try and talk to her every night that shes away anyway.

Shes my wife; calling it a friendship is selling it far too short.

So no my wife isnt my best friend shes the person I wanted to marry, live with, and have kids with. My best friend is the guy I want to drink beers and watch dude movies with.

FRIENDS for EVER

I couldn't possibly be closer to anyone else, no one else knows so much about me, and I have way more fun being with her than anyone else in the world by a huge margin. How could I not see her as my best friend?

Yes, Mrs. Genesplicer is my best friend. We have been married for over 30 years. We prefer each other's company to that of any other person. Good thing, too. Our schools both closed down on March 13. We will not be going back until mid-August. That is a long time to spend with one person, unless you are really good friends with them.

So I got into it with a coworker when I said that my wife isn't my best friend. I explained that I love my wife more than anybody in the world, which means my relationship with her is fundamentally different than that of a friend, best or otherwise. I further pointed out that I did not want to share a bed with or sleep with any of my best friends, unlike how I feel about romantic partners. So what do you guys think? Is your spouse/partner/boytoy/galpal a friend, something more, or a mix of both?

there are probably a lot of people with this same view, also people who would find the way you break down something like that endearing. i like to think you're in a happy marriage, op

I appreciate the support on this.
However a word of caution. If you explain it to your spouse that they are not your best friend, make sure you tell them about the rest of the other part, or they walk around for a week thinking you're just an rear end in a top hat.

My SO was my best friend at the time we got together. I stayed with her when she was not my best friend, and left her when she was not my friend at all.

I think that your SO needn't be your best friend because that's just too high of a bar. Some days you won't feel like they are, and some days you will. They're not loving perfect and it's really on you to understand that going in. But they should feel irreplacable a lot of the time.
