6 Ways To Laugh More With Your Husband

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” – Charlie Chaplin

Laughing is a universal language that everyone understands.  It is the way God designed us to express joy and happiness.  It connects people quickly, in a way that is beautifully vulnerable; and everyone’s laughter is unique to them.

“Laughing together heartily at the same thing forms an instant bond.” – Liz Curtis Higgs

Many people can smile or even chuckle amongst each other in community, but a good laugh between close friends is a valuable treasure.  Laughter shared between a husband and wife is intimate and memorable.

“You had to know a person well to make them laugh like that.” – Cassandra Clare

Laughter is a powerful weapon that lets walls down and breaks emotional barriers.  When a fight lingers in marriage, genuine laughter shared between spouses has the potential of ceasing the tension.  Laughter wins.

“I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.” – Bob Hope

Laughter is essential for a marriage to thrive.  Find time to laugh with your husband, even if it comes at the expense of make fun of yourself… its worth it!

Here are 6 ways to laugh more with your husband:

1. Start With Conversation – Ask him to share an embarrassing memory.
2. Be Playful – Play tug-of-war with an item that he wants, like the tv remote or car keys.
3. Be Witty – Tell a joke, or if you are like me butcher a joke 🙂
4. Be Physical – Initiate a tickle war!
5. Be Silly – Just start laughing, its contagious.
6. Make Fun of Yourself – Loosen up and dance!
I particularly want to emphasize #6. Loosen up and dance.  I am a horrible dancer, yet when I feel like making my husband laugh I go out of my way to make myself look completely ridiculous through the art of bad dancing.  The worse your moves, the funnier!  I figured you may need a little inspiration for awesome dance moves, and while I would love to post a video of me dancing, I feel like Napoleon does it better!  Enjoy!

What do you and your husband laugh about?
