Marriage is something that some people try to get into and others try to escape. We found 9 inspiring stories that prove that if your other half is chosen wisely, marriage can be a real pleasure.

#1. My husband is from another country and he only knows a few words in English. However, those 4 words are enough to accompany any conversation: really, oh great, and damn. It doesn’t even matter what we talk about.

Here’s our recent conversation:
— Honey, I’m so tired.
— Really?
— Yeah, I don’t feel like cooking. Let’s order a pizza.
— Oh great!
— Wait, we don’t have any cash.
— Damn.
— Shall we go to the ATM?
— Really?
We go around in circles. 😀

#2. I did my morning stretches and leaned over to touch my toes. My husband came in and said, “Don’t bow down to me. Just say, ‘Good morning, my king!’ “

#3. I decided to have a romantic dinner for my husband. It’s been a while since I last cooked. It is work or fatigue. So I did it. My husband came in with a big bouquet of flowers and said, “It’s been a while since I bought you flowers.”

#4. My boyfriend is in the hospital. Asked:

How do you like the life of a cat?
— What do you mean?
— You eat and sleep. I come, pet you, and leave. You eat and sleep again…
— Scratch my belly!

#5. My husband and I were swimming in the ocean when a crab pinched his leg. In the evening, he told our friends about the accident. Our friend asked, “Where?” (that is, what part of the body). My husband replied, “I told you. In the ocean.”

#6. My husband and I were walking through the woods looking for mushrooms. Suddenly, two large dogs jumped out of the nearest bush. My husband stood in front of me to protect me. The dog owner ran and took the dogs away. At that moment I realized that he would give his life to save me. Words of love are not just words.

#7. I picked up my husband at a friend’s house on the way home. He had just returned from a 3-day fishing trip, unshaven and in dirty clothes. At the gas station, he went for coffee. Several men told him that he was too young to be homeless. I approached them, looked my husband up and down, and said, “You’re a nice guy. Drive?” He nodded. “Wanna live with me?” He nodded again, trying not to laugh. “Let’s go then. Here are the keys!”

#8. When my husband proposed to me, I said yes. But I asked if my mother could live with us (I swore I would never leave her alone). He agreed and asked to bring his mother as well. That scared us a bit. 3 women under one roof: an explosive mix. But who knew we were so lucky! My husband and I found a note on the refrigerator: “Off on a cruise to pick up men. Love you!”

#9. Yesterday was our second wedding anniversary. People call it paper. We decided to go to a restaurant, but my mood was not so good. I asked my husband not to buy flowers this time. That night I saw a small bouquet of paper flowers on the front seat of the car. He said that he had been trying to make an origami flower all day. Later, he even tried to teach me how to do it. And you know, it’s the best flower I’ve ever had.
