Friendship Love- The Importance

Yes, it is true romance is more common than other types of love. However, it seems as if friendship love is just as beautiful. It also seems to be the 2nd most common form of love. Just like romance, the friendships do vary. Love is important- sometimes a friendship is the only type of love certain characters have in life. Some of these friendships are easy to see as family. Here are some of the friendships that exist in musicals- all of them are friendships I love. Aladdin and his friends are the newest ones to enter my life.

  1. Newsies
  2. Jack Kelly and Crutchie
  3. Friends of the ABC
  4. Elphaba and Glinda
  5. Marius and Eponine
  6. Lumiere and Cogsworth
  7. Aladdin, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim
  8. Rent Batch
  9. Roger and Mark

I can easily see the Newsies, Friends of the ABC, and the Friends In Rent as family. That is especially true for the Newsies- many of them are homeless, have no family, and are runaways. They literally are family and do support each other and have Jack Kelly as their leader.

Love is important. It is something we all desire. We want to feel safe. We desire that affection. Love comes in many forms- that can show up through family, friends, or romance. Who wants to feel unloved? We want to know that someone cares. Some of these characters never felt love before they had a friend- because it was inexistent in the home or they lost their parents at a young age and had to start learning how to live on their own.

  1. I love friendships in stories–they tend to be some of my favorite relationships to follow and track in stories and I love it when a story has strong friendships involved. Unfortunately, I feel like friendships are under appreciated in a lot of stories but they’re very interesting relationships to see all the same!
