Whether you’re currently in a relationship or not, you know how funny observations and jokes about marriage and relationships can be, and how people love to share their jokes and stories with others. Here are five funny quotes about marriage and love that you can share with your spouse and your friends!
“Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children and no theories.” – John Wilmot
People who have never had children might often think that they could, and will, raise their children better than members of their family or friend group who currently have kids. In this quote, Wilmot is showing the wisdom that comes with being a longtime parent, and he demonstrates the humor that comes with the realization of how naive he used to be!
“To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the loving cup, whenever you’re wrong admit it, whenever you’re right shut up.” – Ogden Nash
Men have long been accused of not being the best listeners in relationships, and for that reason men tend to get themselves in a lot of trouble with their significant others! The advice Nash is giving in this quote is more about being a loving and attentive partner than it is a pessimistic view on marriage.
“Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house.” – Rod Stewart
Legendary crooner Rod Stewart has been in his fair share of relationships over the years, so it’s no wonder that his perspective on marriage was so pessimistic at one time. Some of the best jokes written about relationships are written by those who have been in a marriage that, for one reason or another, fell apart.
“Insanity is hereditary. You get it from your children.” – Sam Levenson
This is another hilarious quote about the struggles and obstacles that come with being a parent. As a parent, you can only guide your children through life, and hope that you’ve prepared them enough to make it by themselves in the world, which can obviously breed anxiety – but hopefully not insanity!
“I’ve had bad luck with both my wives. The first one left me and the second one didn’t.” – Patrick Murray
Another example of the more pessimistic side of relationship humor, Murray’s quote speaks more to men who have had more than one bad marriage than to anyone else. However, the reality is that more men and women are getting remarried after a failed first marriage, so it’s likely that this quote resounds with more people than you might think! Even if you are in a secure and loving relationship with your spouse, joking about certain details of your relationship simply shows that you’re comfortable growing together as a couple. Also, bringing humor into what could be awkward conversations with your spouse can also lighten the mood and allow you to communicate more effectively.
