8 married couples with the best sense of humor
Marriage is a long, tough road. But to be fair, so is anything else that’s really worth it, including starting a career, writing a book, taking a trip, or starting a business. When you get married, you promise to love one another through everything, including the tough times. There’s no doubt that life has plenty of those, from regular daily frustrations to serious tragedies.
Ask any couple that’s been married for a long time and they’ll tell you that marriage takes hard work, trust, love — and humor. Almost every couple says a sense of humor is one of the things that helps them stick together and support one another through the hard parts of life.
These married couples might not have it all figured out, but they do know one thing: how to joke together. They make normal days silly, turn mundane activities into games, play tricks on each other, and turn fights into reasons to laugh.
Whether they’re leaving each other silly notes or full-on pranking one another (or their kids) it’s clear they have a funny bone. Even though it’s not always romantic, we can definitely say these are #couplegoals.

This wife told her husband to decorate the guest bathroom however he wanted. He did exactly that and enjoyed every scream coming out of the room. She should have been clearer!

5. It doesn’t look like she’s laughing
