Laughing at Ourselves - Marriage
A marriage between two people (either opposite or same sex) is the legally recognized union of two people, who become partners in a personal relationship. While a marriage can be a great source of love, relationship issues and marital conflicts between couples are common. Differing political, spiritual, financial planning or parenting views, as well as personalities and perspectives can all lead to conflict within a marriage. Add to that list the complexities and stresses involved in everyday work-family-life balance, and it’s easy to see how couples can experience issues from time to time. Experts agree that laughter, and the ability to laugh at ourselves, offers opportunities for stress relief, helping to alleviate some of the conflict that can arise in a marriage. Research shows laughter greatly reduces stress, strengthening our immune systems in the process, improving both our mental and physical health. A study from Ursula Beermann of the University of California, Berkeley, and Willibald Ruch of the University of Zurich, revealed being able to laugh at yourself is linked with higher levels of optimism and better moods. (heathland.time.com) It isn’t always easy to do, but finding humour within our own lives and relationships can be a significant source of stress relief when dealing with the challenges of marriage.
