How do you show your love? Some choose to shower their partner in gifts or praise, some prefer a distant approaches-
but studies show that the jokers are the healthy ones! According to a study from Appalachian State University, couples who “roast each other daily” have a longer and happier relationship than those who don’t.
The keyword here is lighthearted, of course- and getting your daily jab in at your love really means you love them!
So maybe for this valentine’s day instead of some flowers or a nice dinner why not a whoopee cushion??
“Having fun and laughing with your partner is one of the best things you can do to strengthen your bond,” says couples psychotherapist Christine Elvin. She explains that “roasting” each other is more about laughing together than laughing at one person specifically. And as long as your partner is into it, bring on the comic relief and keep teasing each other to keep your relationship going strong.
