Keeping the spark in your relationship alive as time rolls on is tough. Date nights are good, compliments are better, helping each other out with the daily chores of life works well, but the real key to long term love is humor. Being able to make each other laugh ensures that you don’t take life’s twists and turns seriously and that you can at least cheer each other up when things go wrong, which they probably will. Finding a partner with a sense of humor is the Holy Grail, the problem is that it can also land you in the middle of some pretty annoying pranks. These husbands and boyfriends will be there for their partners when the proverbial hits the fan, and in the meantime, they’ll make us all laugh.

The etiquette of children and swearing is always a bit delicate, so it will be a tricky conversation, about why John Mclaine is allowed to swear but he isn’t. The fact that he chose the medium of a Twitter poem to break the news to his wife tells me that he isn’t entirely sorry about this situation.
