There are so many questions that have plagued the history of man. Although we may never really know if Bigfoot is real or what the true meaning of life is, there is one major question I believe I have found the answer to…
What is the secret to a lasting marriage?
Answer: Marry someone that makes you laugh.
Laughter is the key.
Seriously, is there anything better than giggling at something funny someone you love says? It is often said that “laughter is the best medicine” and I hold these words to be true. It heals so many wounds and it solves many of life’s problems.
My husband is probably the funniest person I’ve ever met. It’s what first attracted me to him. He has one of those smartass, dry sense of humors that not everyone can truly appreciate – but I do. He’s not a jokester though. His way of joking involves mouthing humorous commentary on any number of situations; everything from people that we know to what we’re both eating for dinner.
I’ve posted many Facebook status’ about the things he’s said, and they often get like after like. He’s hilarious. Those that know him know that he has no filter and you can take it or leave it. I’ll take it. His wit is what caught my attention in the beginning and continues to hold my interest all of these years later.
Here are 5 reasons why you should marry the funny guy:
1 – Boredom Probably Won’t Exist In Your Relationship
When you marry someone that makes you laugh, you likely won’t lack in the entertainment department very often. Funny people often have vivacious personalities, where it’s almost hard to look away from them. Sometimes, people are like this without even knowing it – they don’t have to put in much effort to be this way.
Imagine being married to a walking Rom-Com character! Granted, your man may not be over the top in his antics but he may just keep your interest with his assessments of people walking past you at the mall. However he makes you laugh, he will keep you busy and boredom will stay away.
2 – Tough Situations Don’t Have To Be The End Of The World
Life can be downright hard and unfair. There are just some times when we all need to cry and be sad. There is just no way around it every so often. But sometimes when life gets you down it can be wonderful to have someone around that can just make you smile.
If you can find a man that can make even the toughest of times a little bit easier by doing this for you, keep him close. As you go throughout your life, you will appreciate this more and more, having a positive companion during the difficult times is wonderful.
3 – Looks Will Fade But His Personality Will Not
Okay, that sounds like something your grandmother would say, but it doesn’t make it any less true! Although, nature’s cruel joke is making most men even more attractive as they get older this isn’t always the case.
Of course, I hope that you always find your hubby hot but it doesn’t hurt if he has a killer personality, does it? Because no matter how he ages, if you marry a funny guy he will likely always be funny – maybe he will have sharpened his comic skills even more over the years.
4 – He Will Most Likely Win Over Your Tribe Of People
It’s human nature to want to be around other humans. We crave closeness, kinship and the support of people that love us. Most of us want our family and friends to adore the person we are going to give our lives to as much as we do.
We all know this doesn’t always happen, but if your soul mate has an inner jokester you have a good chance of your tribe liking him. Laughter breaks ice like nothing else!
Wittiness is a charming feature for any man to have and it packs a heavy punch in the meeting of the parents (or friends) department. Keep this in mind when choosing your mate.
5 – Fights Might Not Last Very Long
In most relationships, the occasional flare up happens from time to time. Some fights are more serious than others, while some are over the silliest of things.
Now I’m not saying laughter will solve every problem you and your funny man encounter, but seeing the lighter side of a fight might help to resolve the problem itself. When you are with someone that doesn’t take life too seriously, he just may be the one to end an argument.
Maybe his mouth and sense of humor will get him into trouble sometimes too, but who knows. I think the good outweighs the bad here.
There are so many things to look for in your future husband. I hope that above all things you will find a man that treats you right and makes you smile. Life is too short to be too overly serious all of the time. It certainly does not hurt to have a partner that can see the bright spots in life. Choose to marry the funny guy, you will not regret doing so.
