Marriage goes by many names: holy matrimony, tying the knot and getting hitched, to name a few. People have been “taking the plunge” for millennia. For precisely that amount of time, they’ve also been making jokes about marriage. One way to maintain a healthy marriage is to have a sense of humor, and maybe have a few laughs at your marriage, or your spouse, every now and then. Luckily, we now have the internet and social media to turn to whenever we need to vent, so one person’s joke can become everyone’s. Whether it’s mundane arguments about everyday life, who gets up to refill the chip bowl, the correct dishwashing process, or simply a record of surviving together in better and in worse, married couples have a lot of dirty laundry to air. These wives took to social media to spill the beans about their marriage and their husbands, and some of these tweets are a lot more amusing – and relatable – than you may think.
If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say…
Sometimes, it’s better not to say anything if we don’t have anything nice to say. The Bambi quote applies to life, but particularly to marriage. As a rule of thumb – if you need to point out it’s a joke, your significant other obviously did not take it as one. Rather than deflecting and downplaying, just apologize and move on.
.If you say something to someone else, they decide whether or not their feelings are hurt. Besides, there are some things you just don’t joke about. In this case, it’s a husband being insensitive, but the same goes for wives and anyone in or out of a relationship. Just be nice to people, everyone’s struggling with life, no need to give them a hard time.
