Couples who appreciate the opportunity to have a good laugh and at times mildly make fun of each other, are more likely to keep the warmth of relations. For many, a sense of humor – a great way to not only cheer up yourself and your partner, but also to defuse the tension and avoid conflict. Of course, here you need to consider your compatibility: some couples like to have some fun, others prefer intellectual humor and arrange virtuoso verbal battles, and still others organise for each other funny jokes. Laughter – a manifestation of the gaming side of the relationship. This is the key to the therapeutic effect of laughter, which gives space to our inner child, relieves psychological protection and allows us to be ourselves.
And what the role laugh plays in your relationship?
Try to experiment: think of each other funny nicknames, watch a good comedy on Sunday night. And if your partner says something that annoys you, try to answer a joke, rather than to start to defend.
