Reason why couples need friends separately

When you are a couple, it is very important to have separate sets of friends and have “together” friends.  To shrink your world down to each other, only, is not healthy. To have friends to go play sports, go shopping, go to lunch/dinner, go to a movie or just hang out with, is a very healthy part of life.

What are the results of not hanging around your own friends?  Isolation, over-dependency, ridiculous expectations and a life that has such a narrow focus that it becomes boring and monotonous.

You won’t have a rich life if you don’t have friends.  It’s like having the same sandwich three times a day, every day and no other meals. Does that sound reasonable?  You could live on that; but it’s boring, ultimately not very healthy and you have very little to bring into the relationship from the outside world.
