PLACE OF HUMOR IN MARRIAGE
“A merry heart does good, like medicine” (Prov. 17:22).
Laughter in marriage is like having a merry in the home. As a merry heart does good like medicine in human body, so also is
the role of laughter in a home. Laughter is important, like the air we breathe in. We cannot really love anybody with whom we rarely laugh with. The more you laugh together, the more you love and draw closer to your spouse.
A child will prefer to play or stay around a companion that makes him or her laugh and plays with him or her rather than
staying with a sister or friend, who will only accuse, allege or control with a frown. Laughter is a beautiful and beneficial therapy God granted humanity. It’s a tranquilizer with no side effect. A home without laughter will build up strife. “Better is a dry morsel and quietness there with, than a house full of sacrifices with strife” (Prov.17v1).
The absence of laughter and cheerfulness at home is equivalent to presence of strife: it turns the home into an oven, an
unbearable environment. The absence of laughter will not only affect the marriage, but the inner life of the couple.
HOW TO ENHANCE HUMOR IN MARRIAGE
1. Deliberately crack jokes that make your spouse laugh but at the right time.
2. Create time for yourselves and play like young children.
3. Study and discover what interest and makes your spouse to laugh, everyone has a unique sense of humor.
4. Play games that interest both of you together.
Laughter will not only save the home, but rekindle the flame of your love with your spouse. A marriage without any humor
is like a wagon without spring, jotted by every pebble in a road.
