Want A Stronger Relationship? Make Fun Of Your Partner

Well here’s some bordering on dangerous advice if taken out of context. According to a new study, if you want a stronger relationship, make fun of your partner. The University of Kansas’ Jeffrey Hall looked at the relationships of 15,000 people over the course of 30 years through 39 studies and found that humor together is the key to success. Of course, he’s referring to playful teasing, not abuse. Hall says, “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.”

Hall does issue a warning that “Having an aggressive sense of humor is a bad sign for the relationship in general, but it is worse if the style of humor is used in the relationship.”

Do you know what other things work:

  • Wedgies
  • Forgetting birthday
  • Forgetting anniversary
  • Forgetting name
  • Peeing the bed
  • Peeing the closet
  • Drinking the last Diet Coke
  • Spitting water in their face
  • Farting loud and laughing louder in front of the in-laws
  • Never doing the dishes
  • Insult their cooking
  • Tell them their taste in shoes suck
  • Never get along with their friends
  • Refuse to meet their parents
  • Don’t share your popcorn at the movies
  • Borrow money and never pay it back
  • Refuse to delete your Tinder and Bumble accounts
  • Never shower
  • Never brush
  • Go on vacation without them
  • Only go to movies you want to go to
  • Never flush
  • Tell their grandmother a 37-minute version of “The Aristocrats.”

All these things can only make your relationship stronger. It’s science.
