50 Funny And Spot-On Posts From The “Marriage And Martinis” IG Page
Marriage & Martinis is an online project by a couple from New Jersey, Adam and Danielle. Together they write a blog, produce a podcast, and have even released a book to help take the fun, sexiness, and deep connection of date night to the next level.
But with this article, let's focus on their social media. There, Adam and Danielle delight their followers with humorous content about marriage and parenting; the memes and jokes they reshare paint a hilariously accurate picture of family life, so let's have a look at them as well!
This selection, as a whole, really represents the way Adam and Danielle view marriage.
"It turns out that people will judge no matter what, so you really have to do what is best for you and your spouse, 'cause in the end, it boils down to the two of you and your connection," the couple wrote on their website.
"No one else can make that happen. We've learned so much along our journey and made so many mistakes, but we've never given up, and have found so much happiness inspite of all the hardship. No one said it was going to be easy, and it hasn't been. But man do we have fun, laugh, and keep each other youthful and wild. We also give each other gray hair and heartburn now, but we'll leave all that for the podcast."
That means fueling the spark even as you grow older and life starts adding more and more responsibilities. "As a stay-at-home-mom to three kids and two rescue dogs, I've learned how important it is to take time for myself and for Adam and me together," Danielle explained. "Laughing at ourselves and the ridiculous expectations placed on us by society as parents and spouses makes this journey so much more enjoyable."
"I think Adam and I are very in touch with the fact that if we take it all too seriously, we'll lose so many opportunities for fun, hilarity, and bonding. Marriage and parenting are seriously hard work. But it's all filled with mistakes and fails that we can either hide in humiliation or if we choose, we can share them and know that we're not alone. I much prefer that method."
"I like the idea of understanding that we're all struggling with the same experiences and fighting similar battles. It's also so nice to hear stories of people who have overcome these struggles and maybe have some advice and knowledge to help make it more tolerable for all of us. I think that describes Adam and me. We’ve been through so much in 20 years of being together, and we've stayed together. It hasn’t been easy, that’s for sure. But it has been worth it," the woman added.
Adam is on the same page. "When she had the idea to combine our love for inappropriate conversation, podcasts, and cocktails, it definitely piqued my interest," he recalled the origins of Marriage & Martinis.
"Plus I've seen how much people seem to relate to Danielle's blog and I think this will be an awesome extension of that, with the same 'real and authentic' voice saying, 'we're far from a perfect couple, but we're trying our best and we've never given up on one another.' It will be a new journey, and I think it will be really fun and interesting to see where it goes. Mostly though, I'm really looking forward to embarrassing the crap out of my wife."
Which is probably what many of the people in the pictures are guilty of too!
