Marie Claire cover girl Blake Lively and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, were sharing traveling pants for years before dating (read: they were BFF), which is why their relationship works so well. At least according to Blake, who just told the cutest story of all time about her husband.

Back in the day, Blake and Ryan would try to find dates for each other, until realizing they were missing what was right in front of them.

That's a loooooong time to wait for Mr. Right, but still—that year+ of friendship was worth it, because Ryan and Blake's marriage is 💪 💪 💪 .

Just, the sweetest. Also, maybe it's time to ask your best friend if she/he wants to fall in love and get married real quick.
