What are some ways to keep humor in your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Levity can get lost in the daily stress of a relationship. Maintaining a sense of humor, however, is vital to a healthy, happy relationship. Cupid has some ideas:

1. Laugh at yourself: If you want humor in your life, you’re going to have to laugh at yourself. Self-deprecating humor, within reason, is a great way to lighten the mood and relieve tension.

2. Set boundaries: You and your partner should establish which sensitive topics are off-limits to jokes. This will free you both to poke good-natured fun at each other without fear of hurt feelings.

3. Schedule comedy: As strange as it may sound, incorporate comedy into your schedule. Go out to a comedy club together or watch a funny movie at home. The endorphins will do wonders for your relationship.
