Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt Leblanc or together known as the FRIENDS have given us several life lessons through the show that aired more than 2 decades ago. Our attachment to this show goes way beyond the TV show- fan relationship. We have practically lived this show and how! So let’s see what we learned from a show that celebrates all sorts of relationships.

Not all of us know how a relationship works. Some of us take more time to realize that than the other. And it was really touching and progressive to see Chandler go through that process. It was beautiful how Monica welcomed Chandler into an “Adult Relationship” and told him how it’s okay to have a fight every now and then. What matters though is how you handle it and learn from it. Fights happen all the time, you have to find a common ground and move on.

The lesson is simple and straight- you cannot marry someone you do not love. It doesn’t matter if you realize that on the wedding day, it is best for everyone that you ABORT this wedding mission right away! Because in any case, the wedding wouldn’t have lasted long enough! The more important lesson though was to take the decision to marry someone only after you are sure you want to.

When Monica and Dr. Richard Burke discovered the chemistry between each other, not everyone reacted very supportively. In fact, her parents and ROSS thought it was unreasonable and unacceptable given the couple’s age difference. But they still carried on with the relationship and explored each other’s relationship. This particular relationship taught Monica a lot. And maybe we can also learn that love is love, it can happen with anyone at any point of time.

When Rachel And Ross Were ‘Just Friends’

The equation between Ross and Rachel even after they broke up was nothing less than beautiful. They continued to care for each other in the capacity of ‘friends’. They didn’t let their past come in between their friendship. They were really good friends, to be precise. Even after being in a relationship. So maybe, just maybe, it is possible to be friends with your ex. I AM NOT ASKING YOU TO GO TRY IT OKAY. But maybe. 😛

When Ross Takes The Name Of Rachel Instead Of Emily

Please be clear about who you're marrying, who you REALLY want to marry, and whose name you cry out!

This is probably the most important lesson of all. Always, ALWAYS say her name correctly. And ESPECIALLY at the altar, on the day of your marriage! Come on! Calling your partner with your ex’s name can be disastrous in Any situation.

Well, that’s it from our side! I am sure all of you learn your own lessons. I hope you stick to them and have wonderful relationships in your lives.
