10 Funny Texts About Marriage That Will Make You LOL
Love

You can tell a lot about what marriage is really like by the way a couple communicates. Verbal and nonverbal communication is a tell-all, whether you realize it or not.

The way you interact with one another when you’re in a room, or even across the country, says a lot about your level of trust, love, and genuine affection for each other.

When you're with someone non-stop for the rest of your life, in sickness and health (and all that stuff), things can sometimes get weird

One day you’re waking up next to one another in the bliss of morning sunlight, dreaming about the days ahead, and the next you’re peeing on the toilet while watching your husband brush his teeth and attempt to hold a conversation with a toothpaste-filled mouth. These are the glory years, folks.

But when it comes down to it, this is the person you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with, and you wouldn’t want to be experiencing the mundane aspects of life with anyone else.

That's what true love is: wanting to be with someone even in the most boring of circumstances because you love them.

I'll tell you what, though: when I look back at the texts I've sent my husband, I see a love story. A weird, slightly offensive, and always a funny love story, but a love story all the same. It's our love story.

Our marriage is definitely not perfect, but it works for us. And we are happy together with what we have.

We live in a world marked by technology and forward-moving communication methods, and, lucky for us, this means we have the beauty of text messaging.

People have the capability to relive conversations from hours, days, or months ago at the swipe of a finger. With a little digging, you can find some moments that highlight the essence of your relationship with your spouse.

Marriage is a wonderful thing people have the opportunity to experience, and every relationship has its own story about what marriage is really like, because no two marriages are the same. What we define marriage as is going to be different than what you do.

Maybe you met online and your initial conversations were rather superficial and full of “get to know you” type texts. Or, maybe you’d been best friends for years until he finally asked you to be something more.

However you got there, this is someone you’ve begun to build a life with and will continue to do so with one another.

Your marriage may be unique, but you might see a lot of your marriage in our texts, too. If so, you're just as lucky as we are. 

Check out these hilarious, mundane texts I've sent my husband that basically sum up the entirety of marriage.
