It Saved Our Marriage
Marriage is hard enough as it is. You have to take care of each other financially, psychologically, spiritually and even physically. Where the other is weak, you should be able to support your partner. If both of you are weak in that area, you are supposed to build your strength so you will be able to carry yourself and your partner. That is why it is hard. So when both of you are hurting because of things done or not done (for that matter), your sense of humor (or your partner's) should be intact and it will be the very thing that will help you great through this.
Just recently, me and my partner had a bit of a quarrel over some mundane thing that I could barely remember now. The reason was not that bad but it almost broke the marriage. Good thing, we had a unique coffee machine that helped us pass this rut that we were in. We are both coffee lovers you see and after arguing for quite some time, we agreed to a timeout and both had our fill of coffee. The coffee maker that we had was really old already but we both love it. Anyways, it sputtered and made really weird, strange sounds that both of us laughed and made us forget what we were fighting about.
I encourage strange coffee machines if you are married. Aside from having coffee everyday, you will have something to laugh over.
