Ah, marriage. It’s great, it’s hard, it’s rewarding, it’s exhausting…to be honest, at this point in my life I’ve decided you have to be a little bit crazy to stick it out through all of the muck (especially during the years when your kids are little). Maybe more than a little bit, even.
The key to anything that sometimes makes you want to throw chemical-filled Kraft macaroni & cheese at another human being you promised to love forever: laughter.

8. Most relatable tweet ever
7. True love doesn’t judge
6. It’s definitely a trick question
5. When one tweet describes your every morning
4. Sometimes we know what not to say, but we say it anyway
3. I feel like they have the objectively easier gig
2. It’s important to pass down truths to the next generation
1. And always remember to keep things interesting…
I hope that at least a few of these tweets made you laugh today. After all, a good giggle is the best way to keep from crying. And also committing a felony that you’ll (possibly) regret.
