"People inspire you...."
“People inspire you or they drain you. Pick them wisely.”
It is debatable as to whether your partner should be your best friend or not. What is certain is that the most successful couples are at least loyal companions. Your partner may not be the person that you've always spilled your guts to, but he or she should certainly listen when you need them to. Hopefully they are gentle and kind with their words and your weaknesses. In the end, when things fall apart, it will be your friendship with your partner that will bring the two of you together.
If this is an area that you would like to work on with your partner, your therapist has many fun ways to help rebuild the friendship between the two of you.
