24 Struggles Only Married People Have To Deal With


Being married…isn’t it the best?  I mean, you pledge to basically lay down your life for this person…but then there are some days when you can’t even stand to be in the same room with them.  Marriage is hard work and can be frustrating sometimes, but it’s well worth the effort.  Here are 24 struggles only married people have to deal with.

1. When you can’t decide where to go out to dinner

We still aren’t sure why this has to become such a huge fight ever time, but choosing a place to eat is a frequent struggle in many different marriages.


2. When he thinks it’s go time

And you’re just over there like, “uh, not so fast, buddy.  You have no idea what just happened down there.”

3. When you start making metaphors

We find this comparison of marriage to going to Ikea to be strangely exhilarating.

4. When you both have a sense of humor

We all want a relationship like this couple has…you can tell your kids fake things and make them freak out just so get a laugh out of it.

5. When you don’t always get along so great

Lets be honest, sometimes being stuck with that person forever just plain sucks.

6. No take-backs

This is why you should test drive your model extensively before choosing to buy.  You wouldn’t want to find any crazy problems hidden under the hood.

7. We met on Tinder…

Why would you still be using dating apps like Tinder if you’ve found your one and only?  Just a question…

But you can send as many naked snaps as you want to your husband.  No problem with that!

10. We think he’s talking about sex?

But, nobody’s sure about anything.  One thing’s for sure, you can’t have it all.

11. “It never hurts to look”

At least, until it’s caught on camera and your wife is going to be pissed at you.

We were not expecting that.  How does marriage make you dead?

You’ll never fully figure her out.  Go ahead and try today, but everything will be rearranged tomorrow.

14. But that 1% of pleasure is seriously worth it!

And we aren’t all pissed off 99% of the time.  That would be, like, your entire life.

15. When the printer doesn’t work

It’s never going to work when you need it to.  And somebody in this household is going to have to yell about it.

This is because you both really don’t care and also don’t have any good ideas.

20. You’ll never get all of the ice cream to yourself again.

So, make sure you’re willing to share or just buy the flavor she doesn’t like so you can keep it all.

22. Try not to compare

He’s at work all day long but you’re stuck taking care of kids, cleaning the house and doing the laundry.  Who has the harder job?  Honestly, we don’t know.

23. Sometimes they’ll amaze you with their wit

Hello, why didn’t the people in the TV show think of that?  We could have saved so many lives!

24. Just keep flirting

Even when they make you mad sometimes, it’s always nice to have someone to be a little flirty with and then you can go home and get it on whenever you feel like it.  So, that’s a plus, right?
