Marriage is never a bed of roses. It also doesn’t mean you have to be miserable for the rest of your life. Marriage takes a bad rap because of bad habits and when couples stop working at making it exciting and start sliding into auto-pilot mode. However, if you and your spouse both have the right perspective and right support system, like marriage counseling in Broomfield or Cleveland or wherever you are located, it can be successful and fun.
Let’s take a quick look at some hilarious reasons why being married is one of the best things to ever happen to a person.
Funny Reasons Why Marriage Is the Best
1. You have someone to annoy for the rest of your lives.
Don’t you just love the idea that you can eternally annoy somebody and yet they will still love you at the end of the day? Well, marriage does that!
2. Your spouse makes for a good excuse to get out of a boring party.
Admit it, if you’re married, you’ve used the “my husband/wife needs me at home” card one too many times to get out of an event you don’t feel like going to.
3. You have your personal item tracker.
Have you ever had one of those things you swore you would never lose? Wallets, keys, glasses, and practically anything else that gets lost. Your spouse somehow placed a GPS on each of those because they always know where those things are!
4. You have a back scratcher!
Spouses are great at scratching your back and those hard to reach spots. Just make sure you don’t get into a fight before things get itchy.
5. You have someone to share a knowing look with.
You know Jim and Pam from The Office and how they exchange knowing looks at each other as if they know what’s going on but don’t need to say a word? Well, that’s your spouse right there.
6. You have someone to blame for breaking wind!
Blaming it on the dog is never fun. Try letting one out in an elevator and blame your spouse and watch how things unfold. It’s hilarious, but can be borderline deadly if you’re not careful.
7. There’s someone to always hand you a roll of toilet paper when it runs out.
Ever been at a party and suddenly felt the need to go but you found out that the TP ran out? A simple text message to your spouse and problem solved!
8. Education is a constant at home.
This applies to husbands, especially in an argument. Even if you think you’re right, you’re wrong. And even if she is wrong, she is right. Confused? We thought so. The only way to learn is to learn from the person who knows what’s right (which is never you).
9. Let that fur grow.
Of course, marriage is never an excuse to get sloppy with grooming. After all, you still would want to look great for your spouse, right? So should you shave your legs or wax your back? Yes, you should. Will you? Probably not.
There are a lot more fun instances in a marriage that can help make it strong as the years go by. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Learn to laugh at yourself, laugh at each other, and laugh at circumstances. After all, you will spend the rest of your life with that furry person so you might as well enjoy it, right?
