The humor of us

I should probably preface this blog with the information that my fiance and I are a very humorous couple in all of our dealings. No matter how bad things get, we can always find something or someway to laugh about it. We are very similar to Lois and Peter on Family Guy and find great humor in each other.....
So the other night I was having a terrible headache bordering on migraine. He asked what he could do and I asked him to get some Naproxen, which he graciously did. I looked at him in all seriousness and said, "With the way things have been going, I'm having an aneurysm and you'll be stuck taking care of me for the rest of my life" (It's been a bad week). He gave me the most sincere look with the deepest concern in his eyes and responded, "Oh honey, taking care of you would never bother me - it's the money it would cost to pay people to care for you that I worry about." followed by his most wry grin. I laughed so hard at that comment - it defines our relationship - when one of us is down or having troubles, the other will find the lightness and lift the spirit! Maybe that's why 3 years into our relationship we've never even had a fight!
I know that relationships always take work, but like I've said many times to my friends - there is a difference between work and 'working in a coal mine' work in a relationship - and I've finally learned that!!!

Humor is a wonderful thing in relationships. If you can keep laughing and joking with one another I'd say you have it made. Hard times will come, difficulties will emerge, but you gotta still laugh and have fun. We'll celebrate our 25th anniversary this year and humor has helped us through a LOT.
