A recent study showed that about nine in ten Americans (88%) see love as the most important reason to get married. And it totally makes sense. With butterflies running errands in your stomach, making this most important decision of your life just feels like the right thing to do.

But as soon as you tie the knot, the game changes, the cards turn, and a new world of married life opens up to you. Both the biggest blessing, and occasionally a solid curse, living in a family unit with your significant other is full of hilarious little moments.

From finding out your husband eats spaghetti with a spoon, to 79% of your marriage being about texting each other the shared passwords, these are some of the brutally honest tweets from people who know it all too well.

My husband cannot look behind the orange juice. It's like some sort of law of physics. He cannot move the OJ to find something else. So I hide chocolate there.

It’s no secret that married life is one heck of a task. Because it’s one thing to meet the love of your life, and another to actually commit to a lifelong healthy relationship.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, Suzann Pileggi Pawelski and her husband James Pawelski, the authors of "Happy Together: Using the Science of Positive Psychology to Build Love That Lasts," said that one of the biggest challenges that most newlyweds face is how someone can be sure that they're ready for marriage.

Moreover, most newlyweds put all their energy into wedding preparations and totally forget what it’s all about. "A wedding is a magical day, no doubt, and of course something to celebrate, but what about planning for all the days to come in our marriage which is intended to last a lifetime?”

The book authors claim that most newlyweds believe that happily ever after happens naturally, but that’s wrong. “Research shows it’s healthy habits that build long-term love," they said. Without our effort, a successful marriage is hardly possible.

“Popular culture seems to romanticize marriage, making people think that once you get married, you can merely ride off into the sunset together. That’s obviously not the case. It takes work." The couple concluded that healthy relationships take hard work, just like everything that's worth going for in life.

That is brilliant. Why didn't I think of this? I have to rely on being able to recognise the sound of my partner's car as he pulls into the drive and a speedy reaction with the TV control.

Does this include what the other person did in your dreams? Cause last night in my dream my husband went on vacation without me but this morning he refuses to apologize like "I don't even know why you are mad at me!" Oh you know why, Bob. You know why.

My girlfriend will randomly return from the gas station with a 32oz soda for me if I haven't gone with her that time. Not every time, like two out of three, so it's a surprise when it happens. It's a small thing, but to me, that's a part of the love language; It says she loves me and was thinking of me

😆 A few months after moving in to our home, our elderly neighbors were out working in their yard when the wife yelled ""OH, SHOVE IT UP YOUR #$%!" and stomped inside, slamming the door. My husband and I looked at each other lovingly and agreed that we want to be just like them when we grow old.
