Dating, relationships, coupling, marriage–all these things.

They’re good for a lot of us because it’s nice to have a ride or die on this crazy trip called life. The wholesomeness and kindness and adventure that comes with sharing your existence with another person can be great, but maybe sometimes it’s a bit less of a white-hot firework sort of love and more like a bottle rocket that sizzles into the air with a very unsatisfying “piff”.

But hey, fireworks are still fireworks as far as I’m concerned–and love in any form is still love, as you will see.

1. Some tolerance is better than no tolerance…

But sometimes the best policy is zero room for error.

2. My eyes are up here.

Marriage does have its perky–I mean perks.

3. I have some ideas.

Or not.

4. Who touched the thermostat!?

Saving money? Or cuddle opportunity?

5. Loading the dishwasher is an art.

Truly, we have to admit that. Kid’s got the skills.

6. I’m not mad, you’re mad.

I madder than mad that I’m so mad for you.

7. Mornings can get lonely…

…It’s hard to make friends at 6 AM.

8. Let’s put on a movie while we eat.

Said me who’s still scrolling through Netflix because dinner’s been done for an hour, the dishwasher is roaring, the kitchen is clean, and she’s already asleep on the couch.

9. K, cool.

But for real, I love you, Kk?

10. I’m a sucker for a tight right angle.

Four corners of bliss.

11. Come on, five more minutes.

Like I said earlier, it’s hard to make friends at 6 AM.

12. I if you like it then you…

…put a ring on it, so I’m going to ensure that you can’t stay mad *whispers* forever.

Relationships are fun. So go make some of those fireworks with the one you love.

If you have a hilarious partner or husband or wife and a story about them to tell, just drop us a comment. We’d love to hear it.
