A full life includes many rich and satisfying friendships. While we are usually most drawn to those whose lives closely resembles our own, a close friendship between a single and a married women can be an undeniable treasure. Every true and loyal friendship has it’s value, but the unique nature and the benefits it provides, makes the friendship between a single woman and a married woman a relationship to cherish. This article will discuss just a few of the advantages of this special friendship.
A Married Woman Enjoys The View Of The Single Life. Whether hearing about the single woman’s adventures produces just a bit of jealousy, the relief of being far removed from that life, or a little bit of both, the married woman usually enjoys hearing about the the single gal’s last blind date or her impromptu trip to Las Vegas. The married woman may call her other married friends for advice on potty training or to vent about her husband leaving his dirty clothes on the floor again, she will surely enjoy the escapism that her single friend’s tales provide. After hearing about the single girl’s most recent date disaster or spending time in her neat-as-a-pin apartment, the married woman may hug her husband a little tighter or actually be warmed by the sight of her cozy living room with the toys strewn about. If the married woman becomes more than a little envious of her single friend’s freedom and relaxed lifestyle, she may be spurred to make a change or two to allow herself a little more time to pursue her own activities, leading to a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
A Single Woman May Realize What She Truly Wants Out Of Life. A single woman may visit her married friend at home and view the noise, activity and endless list of chores as bliss, or she may more fully embrace her quiet life of order and independence. Having an up close view of marriage, family, and all it entails will allow the single woman to truly know what is in her heart, thus enabling her to make an honest and informed decision about where her life is heading.
A Single Woman Is Often Available On A Moment’s Notice. I don’t mean to imply that single women don’t have full and busy lives and can therefore be called upon at the last minute every day of the week, but single women often have an easier time rearranging their schedules to go out for a quick cocktail when the married woman needs a break, or can fill in for the regular babysitter when a date night for the married couple is in order. This fact should certainly never be assumed or taken advantage of, but can certainly come in handy when the married woman simply needs a quick getaway to rejuvenate herself.
Conversations Between Married And Single Women Can Be A Great Change Of Pace. Women love to talk about their marriages and their children, but that is not all they want to talk about. When wives and mothers get together, conversations invariably turn to their husbands and children, and then often remain there for the entirety of the time spent together. When a married woman spends time with her single friends, it may be a great opportunity to discuss pop culture, politics, books or favorite hobbies instead of health insurance, diaper rash and baseball practice. On the flip side, a single woman may find a married woman’s daily life a great topic of conversation since it is so different than her own.
All friendships should be a source of joy and contentment and the wonderful friendship between a married and a single woman can provide a truly amazing array of advantages.
