Having a good sense of humour is one of the principal requirements in most relationships, so much so that some people consider a lack of it to be a total deal-breaker. But can you really imagine being in a relationship without any laughter between you and your other half?
According to one study, making fun of your partner can actually strengthen a relationship – as long as you’re both laughing.
Of course there is a line that definitely should not be crossed. When we say making fun of your partner, we are talking about laughing at a silly outfit, funny haircut or a certain mispronunciation. This does not include hurling abuse at one another, making snide comments to put each other down or anything that could be hurtful to each other.
According to Joyscribe, Jeffrey Hall from the University of Kansas conducted 39 studies involving over 15,000 people over the course of 30 years.
From his studies, he concluded that humour was a critical part of building a successful relationship. More specifically, Hall goes on to explain that partners should share a similar sense of humour to get the best results from a relationships.
In a statement, Hall explained, “People say they want a sense of humour in a mate, but that’s a broad concept. That people think you are funny or you can make a joke out of anything is not strongly related to relationship satisfaction.
What is strongly related to relationship satisfaction is the humour that couples create together. Say you and your partner share a quirky sense of humour, but romantic comedies or sit-coms do nothing for either of you… It’s not that any style or a sense of humour is any better or worse.
What matters is that you both see quirky humour as hysterical. If you share a sense of what’s funny, it affirms you and affirms your relationship through laughter.
Playfulness between romantic partners is a crucial component in bonding and establishing relational security. Particularly shared laughter, is an important indicator of romantic attraction between potential mates.”
“Having an aggressive sense of humour is a bad sign for the relationship in general, but it is worse if the style of humour is used in the relationship. If you think that your partner tells mean-spirited jokes, then it’s likely you’ve seen that firsthand in your relationship.” He added.

Eunice further added that she was at work when her dad texted her what had happened with pictures to match! “I was in tears laughing and showing all of my coworkers. At the time, I wasn’t very active on Twitter and never even thought to tweet it until recently.”

Thankfully, the dentures weren’t damaged, but Eunice’s dad was already in the process of getting new ones. We hope little Maggie gets to keep these pair of dentures!
Man Demands Wife Bury Him With All His Money – Her Genius ‘Solution’ Has Him Turning In Grave
A wife had a clever idea after her late husband made her promise to bury him with all his money. This woman’s husband worked hard for his money but he was a little too much of a cheapskate and believed that his money only belonged to him.
He loved his money even more than he loved his wife. So when he was about to die he made his wife promise to bury him with all his money. Thankfully, his wife was quite smart and at his funeral she came up with an idea that made sure she kept her integrity while granting his wish. Here is the story:
“There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money. He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the after life.’
So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died she would put all the money in the casket with him. When one day he died.”
He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, ‘Wait a minute!’
She had a shoe-box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket and rolled it away.”
‘I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.’ Her friend said.
She said, ‘Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him.’
‘You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?’her friend asked shocked.
‘I sure did. I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.’ said the wife.”
