The 31-year-old singer Ciara believes that friendship makes all kinds of relationships stronger.
Ciara is married to American football star Russell Wilson, says friendship plays a really important part in her married life as it is an essence of what makes their romantic relationship successful, reported Femalefirst.
"I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship - and once you know you're really great friends and you're what we call 'equally yoked,' where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone.
"Knowing that you'll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful... I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views. It's awesome how it all worked out," Ciara said.
