View Profile

Marriage can and does change things in a relationship. Over time we start to get more comfortable and sometimes forget about that initial spark. Maybe you’re an exception to this phenomenon but we reckon a few of you will be able to relate to these funny truths about married life.

Do any of these funny truths sound familiar?

  1. You may be the boss at work but when once you get home, you’re not. Let’s face it, the wife always is.
  2. The husband does everything he’s asked, but the wife always has to ask!
  3. Games are not a game. The wife hates it when you win and hates it when you let her win!
  4. The wife has the last word in any argument.
  5. ‘Now I can get fat…’
  6. You let it all out. Love is not having to old your farts in anymore.
  7. Love may mean never having to say you’re sorry. But marriage means apologising when you know you’re right.
  8. Inevitably things get shared – your wallet…becomes OUR wallet.
  9. The blanket war! If you think women are the weaker sex, try pulling the blankets back to your side.
  10. Showering together is actually an inconvenience. The expectation of romance versus the practical reality are very different.
  11. Marriage can take a heavy toll on how you look…

Any others you’d like to add?

  1. 1,2,6,8,9,10 &11….yep marriage changes your life….there’s a whole lot of other stuff you could add to this list that no one tells you beforehand….just saying , after 42 yrs I could write a book, & if I knew then, what I know now, I think I’d have done things differently…anyone game enough to admit the same ????

  2. Never question your wifes tastes. After all look who she married. You know she married Mr. Right. She just waited until after the wedding to tell you your first name was Never. Remember that special gift you getting for Christmas is the same one you got every night before the wedding. Did she tell you before the wedding that she was happy for you to make all the big decisions in your life together leaving the small decisions to her. Then realise their never seems to be any big decisions.

  3. the man is the head of the household – the woman is the neck – and the head turns whichever way the neck does.

    (which may explain why men feel women can be a pain in the neck)

    men only need two words for a long-lasting marriage – ‘yes dear’
