You guys? While I usually loathe all things sappy when it comes to social media posts -- this adorable photo of Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici even made my cold, cold heart melt a little bit.
He shared the pic on Instagram and captioned it with the most simple, yet sweet words -- "Me and my best friend."
And if that's not enough to shut up their haters once and for all and convince them that Sean and Catherine are the real deal and are meant to be together -- then nothing will ever silence them.
OMG. Does this tell us everything we need to know about how in love these two are, or what?
How many times have you heard the whole bit about how you're supposed to marry your best friend if you want to have a long and happy life together? The concept is practically drilled into our brains from the time we are teenagers. (Or at least I know I heard it over and over and over again.)
Sure, you still need passion, romance, and a shared adoration for each other to keep things afloat -- but if you don't have a solid friendship to fall back on, your marriage is practically doomed right from the start.
By calling Catherine his best friend, Sean is proving that there's way more to their relationship than a big, fancy TV wedding -- she truly is the person he wants to be with for the rest of his life -- which means this marriage just might stick.

OMG. Imagine that. A reality TV romance that actually stands the test of time, versus being over in 72 days, or whatever.
Maybe they'll prove me wrong in another couple years or so, but at this point, it looks like Sean and Catherine really do have the potential to be the next Trista and Ryan Sutter. You know, a normal couple with a pair of kiddos who choose to live their lives out of the spotlight instead of trying to conform to the whole Hollywood marriage thing.
(Wouldn't that be nice?)
Did you marry your best friend?
