I'm married to a joker. He can see the funny side of anything, even in the dead of night, or when disaster strikes! It's quite a gift and I'm glad he's like that - most of the time! Humour has its place. Of course it shouldn't be used to hurt and sometimes it's simply not appropriate, but do we laugh enough these days? I read once that laughter was a great reliever of stress, and we could all do with some of that!
Humour is a very individual thing, but it's still good to find ways to laugh together. What sort of things do you both find funny? Have you a favourite comedy show? How can you help each other see the funny side of life? Can you help each other to laugh at yourselves occasionally, to not take yourself too seriously? And remember, if you're married to a comic as I am, that there is more to him/her than their humour. It often hides a vulnerability and insecurity, that cries out to know its loved and accepted.
When did you last share a laugh together?
