Funniest Marriage Moments


1. When Angel had a dream that I was going out on a third date with another guy and he was pretty upset because one, or even two dates, he could understand, but three dates in a row was just too serious of a relationship. He wasn't okay with the third date.

2. When my uncle passed us going the opposite way while we were driving, and later complained because he waved and waved but we didn't even see him because we were just looking at each other (not recommended when driving).

3. This story that's too embarrassing for me to even type again. If you're curious and want a laugh, read it. If you don't want to embarrass me further, don't read it. Up to you.

4. That time a nice young man asked me out at a New Year's Eve dance I attended with my family and I responded with "Thank you, but I'm married." and he said, "Oh, where's your husband?" and I said, "He's at work." and then we had a nice conversation about where Angel worked and the crazy schedules inspired by hospital shifts.

5. When we went on a date and Angel locked the keys in the car, and my grandparents lived ten minutes away so we ended up calling my grandparents to rescue us from the restaurant so that we could drive home in their van to pick up the spare keys. It's really weird to be married and to get picked up from a date by your grandpa.

6. The birthday when Angel wrapped up a whole bunch of stuff from around our house like they were birthday presents and gave them to me. He thinks this is hilarious. I think I'll finally come around to thinking this was funny in about 5 more years. I don't mess around when it comes to presents.

7. When, a year after we got married, I turned in a final paper for sociology class with my maiden name on it and later my professor called me over to talk and said he was going to deduct points because I forgot my own name. This was only funny when I realized he was joking.

8. When my cousins told me they were scared of Angel because his big teeth looked like shark's teeth.

9. That time there was a bat in our house and Angel videotaped himself catching it and then he brought it over to show it to me, which resulted in piercing screams, forever memorialized for posterity in the form of a video.

10. When I woke up screaming "Mommy!! Mommy!! Mommy!!" at the top of my lungs when Angel walked in the bedroom after midnight, getting home from a late shift at work. Hey, it's really scary when some guy just walks into your room in the middle of the night like he's supposed to be there!

11. All the times we went sledding with our cats Narcan and Morphine. Angel claimed they loved it. I'm not completely convinced.

12. When I came back from a trip to Malaysia, hadn't seen Angel in a few weeks, and he tried to disguise himself at the airport by wearing a hat and growing out his beard--knowing that I can't see very well when not wearing my glasses. I did find him in spite of his disguise, but not immediately.

13. When Angel utterly has always utterly despised the idea of costume parties or couples' costumes (even though I think they're awesome), and then bought a mascot-style bear costume on eBay.

14. First morning of marriage. Angel wakes up early and vacuums up all the glitter our relatives had sprinkled inside our car during the wedding. We get in the car to head out to breakfast. It's a sunny morning, so he puts the visor down, instantly dousing himself with a shower of glitter. I spend the rest of the drive holding the passenger seat visor tight against the ceiling so that I won't be similarly glittered.


Linking up with #LoveBlog because there's no better time to laugh about the funny stuff of marriage than during National Marriage Week.

  1. I was smiling all the way reading this post )))) you inspired me to wear a blonde wig and sunglasses to meet my Husband at an airport sometimes! That would be hilarious!
    By the way, the thing with wrapping things from the house isn't funny at all.
    Once, when my Husband was taking shower and washing his hair, I was adding more and more shampoo while he was trying to wash it off. The more moves he made, the more foam appeared. That was so hilarious ))) to me!

  3. This made my morning. Oh if only my husband was this entertaining. I am just happy when he talks. (He is a very quiet man) Sounds like you have an interesting marriage. Keep it fun and entertaining.

  4. Haha! I can resonate with many of these. What your husband did with the presents; I think I want to copy that and do it on my husband. But I probably wouldn't be able to keep a straight face. Thanks for showing the fun side of marriage.

  5. I just died over the wrapping of random house items as gifts! Birthday's are sacred to me. I do a birthday week and everyday I give my husband a small gift leading up to his main gift. If he did this to me I would be plotting a silent but deadly revenge.

  9. Hahahahaha I loved the one about "losing points" for forgetting your married name!

  10. HAHAHA I especially love the one where your teacher called you out for not knowing your own name! So funny! :-P

  11. Oh my gosh, these are hilarious. I love that you got asked out at a New Year's Eve party! So funny. I should keep a list of these.

  12. I kept grinning as I read these, but only when I came to your very last sparkly story did I burst out laughing.

  13. Your name story made me laugh! A couple years into our marriage, a lab tech asked me to confirm my full name and I used my maiden name. He was like, "Newlyweds?" And Cass was scowling and answered, "No." I thought it was hilarious and laughed. The tech looked so uncomfortable.

    I miss the bear adventures. So funny!

  15. These are hilarious! There have been a couple of times that I'll start to write my maiden name on something-old habits can be hard to let go of! The glitter story is awesome. I'm pretty sure that a year after our wedding, we still had vestiges of glitter in our car. Oh, so #6 about the presents-my husband and I did that for gift-giving to my siblings this Christmas (his idea entirely), and it was hilarious! Especially because he's super sneaky, so even though he was with my siblings for the majority of Christmas Eve, he managed to take/steal a ton of their belongings and hide them with our stuff so we could wrap it haha.

  16. Oh gosh, I'd freak at first if my professor said he'd deduct points since my name is wrong. Strangely enough, I can be super sarcastic but some people's sarcasm is so dry it's difficult to detect! Also--just saw your comment and was super duper excited to be nominated for an award. Yep, Northern Lights is definitely turning into a celebrity! I need to dig up some more stories about him, but we (read: they) all actually haven't been biking together much since it's cold. I'm so glad to have met you, you lovely lady! <3

  17. These are so so so funny!

    I can believe Angel would wrap random gifts around the house but OH MY WORD! I'd be so so angry and demand a real gift.

    Bats! Ew girl, they are gross!!! We had bats in Brazil and my sister felt something fuzzy under her bed and she pulled it out and it was a big dead bat that my cat had killed. She screamed bloody murder and it was HILARIOUS!

  21. Uhhh yeah, I'm with Donna - the glitter is awesome!! Also, I just read the post you couldn't handle re-typing because it's so embarrassing. HAHA oh my word. That is so awkward!! Probably could have passed for non-awkward in my family, but I would have still felt mortified! Thanks for sharing these. So good.

  28. I love all of these stories! You guys are the funnest couple.

    P.S: How do you catch a bat?? We had a squirrel fall down our chimney and get trapped in our fireplace once, but thank goodness it couldn't fly so we were able to build a channel out of cardboard to the back door and chase it through with a broom!

  29. Oh my goodness, this post made me laugh out loud! Hilarious! I know the wrapping random items around the house like presents isn't the nicest thing to do, but I find it hilarious!
