    In a successful marriage:

    Friendship or Passion.

    I'm convinced the only difference between 'friends' and 'lovers' is passion; therefore, a friend with whom there exists no passion is not a 'lover' by definition.

    I would say that friendship is more important. When you're both in your 70's or 80's and can't do the nasty any more, you'd better have a good friendship to fall back on!

    But UNTIL you get 70 or 80, life can be pretty lonely. :(

    agreed. i can have a lot of fun with my bud (not the weed type) but I ain't gonna pork him and he ain't gonna be my lover. A successful marriage needs both friendship and passion. Otherwise, marriage is no different from having a close friend.

    Most definately friendship.

    You can have passion for the one night stand picked up in the bar. For someone you want to wake up next to when you are both 80, you better build and foster a friendship.

    I think you must have passion ! You have to have that type of connection .
    Passion is not all about sex but its about needing one another to feel whole.. You can still have friendship and still feel alone..

    you can have passion without sex. it happens when folks get old. they still wanna do the monkey, they just can't. so instead, they hold this strong passion for each other and that is what makes their friendship all that more special!

    If you married her, there WAS passion, which means that you probably lost the friendship and the other followed or eyes are straying? :wtf:
