Courteney Cox Calls David Arquette Her 'Best Friend' -- No Wonder They Broke Up

courteney coxIt's cool if you can be friends with your ex, but I will say this: Most likely, it means your relationship was dead long before the two of you ever broke up. And, maybe, possibly, you guys should have never been together in the first place. I know it's controversial, but it's the truth. Clearly, the two of you were meant to be friends, as opposed to lovahs. I mean, how could you be all buddy-buddy with someone you once were deeply, madly, passionately in love with? The only way is if you're seriously over it; if you fell out of deep, mad, passionate love a long time ago. And, I hate to say it because I really liked them as a couple, but Courteney Cox and David Arquette clearly weren't in love for quite some time. How do I know this? Courteney recently told Ellen of David: "He's my best friend in the world."

Now that doesn't sound very sensual, now does it?

It's great that Courteney and David are having an acrimonious divorce for the sake of their adorable daughter, but at the end of the day, doesn't really sound like these two were hot and bothered over one another for quite some time. You know what they say about the opposite of love, right? It isn't hate (that's too close to love); it's total apathy. Seems like Courteney is pretty apathetic about her ex if she can say they're best friends so soon after a breakup.

Relationships don't always work out. That's just the way it is. It's happened to all of us. And sometimes, when you know things are wrong with your relationship, it's almost embarrassing; and you want to deny anything is wrong. Those are the relationships that wind up just slooooowly fizzling out. It isn't one incident in particular. It's just that, well, you're not into each other.

Sex isn't the main component of all relationships. Not in the slightest. But being hot for your partner is important. Otherwise, why not just be friends? Best friends. You know, like Courtney and David.

Did you ever have a relationship slowly fizzle out for no reason in particular?

    Isn't the person you married supposed to be your best friend?

    Your life partner SHOULD be your best friend... Ugh, this website sounds like a bunch of bitter wives in bad marriages.

    This article makes no sense. My boyfriend is my best friend in the whole world and we are madly in love. Nicole, of you don't have this relationship with your husband, then I feel very sorry for you.

    I have never been best friends with my ex, but I think it's great they can have that type of relationship. Just shows they are better off as friends then being married to each other. I just saw a picture of her daughter and she looks just like her Daddy! :)

    "It's great that Courteney and David are having an acrimonious divorce for the sake of their adorable daughter..." acrimonious = angry and bitter

    Before using big words like acrimonious, you should keep a dictionary handy. Seriously.
