Humor is the lifeblood of any relationship. Get your partner to laugh and they’re smitten. Keep them laughing and they’re yours. Now and forever. To get you giggling and in the mood for Christmas cheer, Bored Panda has collected some of the best examples of husbands and boyfriends pranking their significant others and having a laugh. Check them out below, upvote your fave pics, and get inspired, dear Pandas!
Bored Panda was curious to learn more about making long-term relationships work better, so we reached out to ‘Relate,’ the United Kingdom’s largest provider of relationship support. Last year, they helped over 2 million people strengthen their relationships. ‘Relate’ counselor Barbara Honey explained to us that having a sense of humor and “shared loves and likes” really helps maintain attraction to your partner after many years and decades of being together.

Instead I sent her this xenomorph image and she sent it to everyone before realising what it was. She was not amused.
Jokes, pranks, and laughter can help create a solid foundation for any relationship. What you need are common threads that bind you and your partner together and humor can certainly be a vital part of creating common ground. Having a playful, optimistic outlook on life can certainly help keep things fresh and lively!
“Another thing that bonds you is shared experiences and memories that you can look back on together. Familiarity doesn’t always breed contempt!” Honey from ‘Relate’ told Bored Panda that working on experiencing the world together can bring couples together.
And we’re very happy to learn that familiarity doesn’t always have to lead to passion being snuffed out. (Ahem some of us are a bit afraid that routine can lead to apathy.)

However, that’s not all when it comes to keeping the flame burning bright. At the end of the day, we love those that we spend the most time with. So naturally, we need to dedicate some one-on-one time for our partners. But it’s just as important to find the time just for ourselves because we’re individuals, not just one half of a couple. And time alone helps you avoid resentment.
“Setting aside quality time for each other is important but also having your separate interests and time apart can increase your attraction to each other. Keep things playful and be appreciative of your partner,” Honey said.
