No One Wants to Hear about a Happy Relationship
“No one wants to hear about a happy relationship.” That’s the Comedian said after doing a bit on stage. Before he told a joke, he would run it by me to ask whether it was okay. I honestly didn’t mind. I knew it was an exaggerated version of our reality. Once, a woman pulled me to the side after he performed on stage and said, “You don’t have to let him talk about you like that.”
Sincerely, it was okay. I had gotten comfortable with being the butt of 90% of his jokes. In all seriousness, comedians talk about what they know, and if they spend most of their lives with you, then you will be the butt of their jokes. I usually laugh it off and say “I signed up for this when I decided to date a comedian.”
It’s the same as being a dating blogger. I spent countless hours talking about my latest conquests and how the majority of them went wrong. Now, that I’m in a happy marriage with the comedian, I am scrambling for good material. I have no issues talking about myself but who really wants to read about a happy relationship?
It’s true. Most of us watch reality TV because we feel that if this rich person’s life is falling apart in front of us, then maybe we aren’t so bad. These past few weeks, a lot of people approach the Comedian and me and ask, “How’s married life?”
I sincerely don’t know how to answer. It’s great. Nothing has changed. We are still two creative peas in a pod just trying to make our way in the world. He’s the type of person who can make you laugh and the next hour has a serious conversation about the development of society. It’s crazy to have found this combination in a person, but it works. Someone told me to
enjoy this time because you never know when things will change.
She is right. I’ve seen my friends go through ups and downs in their marriages. But the strong always prevail. I admire the strength in understanding your partner, and when things get tough, they are really there for you.
The comedian even said in his vows that you need someone to grow with you and push you to be the best version of yourself. I would like to challenge everyone to talk about their happy relationship. It might make the idea of finding the right partner much less stressful. He is out there.
On a side note... our wedding video is out!
I hope you enjoy!
