The major aspect between your friend's Ascendant and her boyfriend's Sun is an excellent synastry contact in terms of bringing his Sun into the relationship. (Assuming that your friend's birth time is accurate and the aspect is reasonably close). If it isn't, then this doesn't mean that the relationship is shallow. It simply means that the presence of your friend won't prompt the expression of his Sun to the same extent that would be the case if there were aspects.
But to back up what astrologer50 was saying, while there is a place for looking at aspects (or lack of aspects) in isolation, there is a limit to what can be said about a real life situation without looking at the whole chart, especially when there are two people plus the dynamics between them to consider.
By nature we have no defect that could not become a strength,
no strength that could not become a defect
Every chart is a dog's dinner in terms of consistency of theme
