In the few months I have been married (and I would so not call myself an expert by any means...) there is something I've learned. A sense of humor is vital to a relationship. Sure, all of that lovey dovey stuff is great, but if you can't make each other laugh, then you're missing out on something wonderful.
I lucked out when I met T, really I did. Everyone in my family has a weird sense of humor. I think it has to do with the fact that my dad raised us watching classic movies like Airplane!, Blazing Saddles, pretty much anything Mel Brooks...and now I've grown up as someone who can rarely find the humor in something. Sometimes it's inappropriate, but...it's me. And I have to admit, I was worried that I wouldn't find a guy who fit that. Someone who understood me.
And then walked in T. T, the guy who laughs every time he hears the name Dick, or the word cock, or makes Beavis noises when vacuuming the house. Someone who finds it funny when I make weird noises that make me sound like I'm some sort of animal from Jurassic Park. T, the guy who I can reference Family Guy scenes with. T, the guy who regularly makes me laugh by posing and making stupid faces with my feet by his face. (We're weird, you'd have to get us...)
He's rubbed off on me. I find myself laughing when I hear the name Dick, going "huh, huh...he said dick..." ala Butthead. We're weird, but it's us.
It's just so amazing to find that one person who gets you, gets everything about you and probably knows you more than you know yourself sometimes. The kind of guy who, when you're out doing wedding photos, thinks it would be hilarious to take a picture next to the porta-john that he always has to use when we're out for walks (and I always get impatient). The kind of guy who looks at you and says "let's walk into the reception hall playing Black Sabbath "Iron Man!" The kind of guy who loves the fact that I watch TLC trainwrecks to make myself feel happier at the end of a rough day and makes fun of these shows with me.
A sense of humor is vital to a relationship, or at least it is to ours. It's one of the reasons why I feel like such the luckiest person in the world.
