    CONTEXTO

    Otro modismo con la misma idea es:
    Through thick and thin /To stick through thick and thin.

    Tom has been such a good friend, he's been there through thick and thin. I appreciate his friendship. :)

    En wikiproverbs pone "hay que estar a las duras y a las maduras" como "no joy without annoy",Never pleasure without repentance.

    We are discussing it, and we thing that would be more "no todo el monte es orégano", but oh well. I'd stick with Kibramoa's option, is the one that sounds more familiar to me.

    Estar a las duras y a las maduras

    To be there whenever needed, in good times and bad
    E.g. Los buenos amigos estan contigo en las duras y las maduras = Good friends always stand by your side, even when times are tough.
