Relationship vs. Marriage


Here's a tongue-in-cheek look at some humorous differences between being in a committed relationship and being married.

1. "I have to live with this for the rest of my life."

Relationship: If your partner says something or does something that really bugs you, you forgive and forget fairly easily. After all this is the perfect relationship and you will not a little thing spoil it.

Married: When your partner says or does something that really bugs you, you think, "Here is one more thing that doesn't work." You add it to the long list running in your head.

2. "You are possessed!"

Relationship: After a while, you get to know your partner really well. Most responses from him or her fall within a predictable pattern of speech or behavior.

Married: Your partner gets occasionally possessed and things come out of his or her mouth that clearly belong to someone else, likely one of his family members. The person to whom this is happening is often just as shocked as you.

3. "You used to be cute, but now you have to change."

Relationship: While in a relationship, you can accept many differences and idiosyncrasies about your partner. You may even find them cute or endearing.

Married: Now that you are married and have to live with the person for the rest of your life, his or her differences and idiosyncrasies become "need to change" projects.

4. "What do you call him or her now?"

Relationship: When you are in a relationship and people say "your wife" or "your husband" when referring to your significant other, you promptly correct them.

Married: People say "your wife" or "your husband," and you have two responses. The first is "That's right, my honey." The second is "What is his/her name?" You have been calling him or her honey for so long, you may not remember.

5. "Congratulations, but it's all downhill from here."

Relationship: If you have been together for a while, people are likely already asking you when you will get married. They want you to experience this next great stage in your life.

Married: Now that you are married, people will ask you when you will have children. If you already have children, people will ask you when you will have more. Then, regardless of what is next, they will tell you it's all downhill from here.
