Couples That Make Fun of Each Other Are Healthy
Couples That Make Fun of Each Other Are Healthy. According to science, the happiest couples are those who can playfully laugh with one another, especially when it comes to (lovingly) joking about the other person. Researcher Jeffrey Hall from the University of Kansas conducted 39 different studies that included 15,000 participants over a 30-year span.
But what’s important to note is that it’s not as simple as finding someone with just anysense of humor. The key here is to find someone with the same sense of humor as you. Hall believes it would never be enough to just seek out someone with any old ‘sense of humor’, as it’s too subjective.
Hall states, “People say they want a sense of humor in a mate, but that’s a broad concept. That people think you are funny or you can make a joke out of anything is not strongly related to relationship satisfaction. What is strongly related to relationship satisfaction is the humor that couples create together.”
The art of healthy relationshipping is shared cultivation. Whether it’s inside jokes or being able to poke fun between two individuals, humor is the essential piece to make a relationship become a union.
