Eight Ways To Fix Things When Your Spouse and Your Best Friend Don’t Get Along

We all have that one friend who is not just a secret keeper to us, but means just as much as our immediate family does, if not more. It could be a friend we have grown up with, spent naughty schooling sessions with or someone we met just a couple of years ago but managed to make all the difference. Our confidante in times of need and our partner in crime. Had it not been for seemingly different looks, we would have been termed as siblings.

Let us look at ways to work through this unpleasantness. Brace yourself, it’s a bumpy ride ahead.
