Comedic Marriage Advice From the Pros

There is no dearth of relationship advice for married couples, but it is often difficult to decide to whom you should listen. These quotes, though comedic in nature, contain important lessons and valuable information for how to keep your marriage fun, loving, and attentive.

“Husbands are like fires; they go out when unattended.”

Though it is meant to be funny, this quote from ZsaZsa Gabor is full of truth. While it is easy to get caught up in the day to day life of being married, it is important to always engage with your spouse. For husbands, this engagement typically involves some sort of intimacy, physical or otherwise, and it can be difficult for a man to remain connected with his spouse if this area is greatly lacking. Instead of allowing your husband to go out like a fire, attend to him in the ways only you can.

“All marriages are happy. It’s the living together afterward that causes all the trouble.”

Sometimes the act of living together, not your marriage itself, is what creates much of the difficult couples experience. It is difficult, especially for newlyweds, to transition into living with another person. This transition can be frustrating, irritating, and just plain bothersome. It can take time to get used to living with an individual with whom you have never lived before. Take this process one day and step at a time rather than expecting everything to be perfect all at once.

“When you see a couple walking down the street, the one that’s a few steps ahead is the one that’s mad.”

Again, another true statement! It is more than likely that you will experience a time in your relationship, if you haven’t already, that you and your spouse will disagree in a public setting. An argument may ensue and one or both spouses may become angry. In these moments, allow the person who is angry to walk away if necessary. There will be plenty of time to return to the topic and sort out what was wrong later on, and it is not worth making things worse by trying to figure everything out right here, and right now.

Sometimes marriage will feel as if you have no privacy left in your life. Do not allow these moments to create weakness in your relationship. Instead use these times as a way to give your spouse insight into the deeper things of your heart and your mind. Rather than trying to hide, let your partner be a part of everything. Allowing them in will never permit them to have a reason to spy.

Stick it out! No matter how difficult your situation or marriage maybe, give it a shot and keep trying. There will be times when you feel as if there is no other option remaining than to divorce. But often couples give up too easily and choose not to fight for their relationship.

Obviously there are exceptions to the rule, and it is never wise to remain in a relationship in which your life maybe in danger. In a case like this, it is important to seek help from those who can provide it. Otherwise, remember the words you spoke when reciting your vows: “for better or for worse.”

“Marriage: sometimes soulmates, sometimes cellmates.”

Sometimes your marriage will feel as if the two of you are fully connected. And other times it will feel as if you are on totally opposite sides of the world. Don’t let the difficult moments overshadow the blessings, and allow your marriage flow freely between the two. Do not see times of difficulty as punishment, but rather as times for the both of you to grow together and understand how to engage more positively with one another.

“Marriage is getting to have a sleep over with your best friend, every single night of the week.”

Lastly, it is important to have fun in your marriage. Think of it as though you are having a slumber party with your best friend. Growing up, you likely did not get to spend every weekend, let alone every night, with your best friend. But marriage changes the rules of the game – it gives you not only a reason but an excuse to have your best friend by your side twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Unless, of course, you need to have a break from one another! Let your day today activities and your nightly slumber parties reflect the kind of fun you want to have in your relationship, and never let that feeling go.
