Living with another person is hard. If it’s your family, a roommate, a partner – human beings (including ourselves, I guess) are just weird and gross and we have habits we don’t even realize are annoying until someone else points it out.
Cohabitation can be a real test for a relationship, but less so if one or both parties can manage to keep their sense of humor.
In that way, at least, these 10 tweets should help.

What makes marriage so different from being single is that when you need emotional support, you have someone right there to tell you to stop talking during their favorite show.

5. You know she still loves you because she pretended to listen to the whole thing.
Just regaled my wife with a story about a grocery coupon that should have worked but didn’t but then the guy got it to work after all.
Don’t tell me the spark is gone.
