While we all enjoy a good observational joke, it's also important to keep laughter inside the relationship as well, which is something the women on this list know about far too well.

This collection of photos taken by wives and girlfriends prove that a healthy dose of pranking and jokes helps the heart grow fonder or at least keeps a smile on their faces (but happy wife happy life right?)

Science proves that when it comes to finding the right relationship a sense of humor play a huge role. Professor Jeffrey Hall, a communications studies researcher at the University of Kansas, analyzed 39 studies of over 15,000 participants to find out just how important humor was to relationships. He found that couples who created humor together or had the same sense of humor experienced higher satisfaction

Hall says that playfulness, such as jokes and pranks, are key building blocks in lasting relationship. It bonds the couple and creates security between partners. What these findings mean are that if you see couples who frequently laugh or play around with each other it is more than likely that these are the people who will stand the test of time.

Me. 1977. Nurse says, "Oh, you can see the baby's head". I grab the edge of the bed and wall and ease back into my seat. Nurse says, "Oh if you're going to react like that, you cannot come into the delivery room"... I sat in the waiting room, chain-smoking. Yes, one could smoke in hospitals way back then. I have since quit. Kids, please don't smoke. (It was a boy, now 41)

People can injure themselves when they faint so I do not find that very funny. I once had a friend who had some mild neurological problems and because of that she fainted very easily and she sometimes got injuries because of that.

Are they laughing with you or are they laughing at you? While we all tease the ones we love from time to time, it's important that they are in on the joke. Having the humor match is possible, and researcher Hall says that it is important not to make your SO the butt of the joke. "Having an aggressive sense of humor is a bad sign for the relationship in general, but it is worse if the style of humor is used in the relationship," he said to Business Insider. "If you think that your partner tells mean-spirited jokes, then it's likely you've seen that firsthand in your relationship."

Men and women both value laughter in relationships, but in different ways. One study asked 129 students to indicate how they responded to humor and how they wished their humor was received. For women the importance of having a partner make them laugh and someone who understood their humor were equal, whereas for men they mostly just cared that their partner laughed at their jokes.

Many studies prove overwhelmingly back the idea that humor is a top priority for women in a potential mate. Psychology Today posted a study on their blog that discovered women were more likely to give their phone number to a man who joked around a lot with them than to one who didn't. These funny guys were also perceived to be more attractive, smart and sociable.

Humor is not just for attracting a mate but for keeping one. A study with 3,000 married couples from five countries found that both parties in the partnership were overall happier with a funny partner. This was more important to the wives for marital satisfaction, but both believed it was a key component. It should also be noted that the husbands and wives both noted that the husband humorous more frequently (that's just what we want them to think).

Laughter is an aphrodisiac for women. Studies have shown that women with humorous partners have stronger orgasms than women with more series partners. Women with funnier partners also were found to initiate sex more often and have it in greater frequency.
