As someone who's been married to the same human for 22 years, I can say with confidence that a big key to marital bliss is to come at it with a sense of humor. Living with and loving someone for life (hopefully) is a shared journey with ups and downs and unexpected detours. The story of that journey is filled with big life events and mundane daily details, and with moments both precious and perturbing.

Shared by Joshua Johnson on Facebook, this "Marriage: A Story of Love in 28 Parts" compilation includes universal sentiments, classic spouse conundrums, and pandemic-specific realities for people in long-term love

But not everyone is thrilled about the idea of a grown woman dressing up for educational purposes, because maybe some people just hate joy? A man took to Reddit's "Am I the Asshole" forum to complain about his preschool teacher girlfriend's work outfits, saying, "she dresses like Ms. Frizzle."

According to the man, she'll wear "a dress with the pattern of whatever they are studying. She makes a lot of them herself, now including matching masks." He might be the only person who has a problem with it, because he admitted, "The kids love it, and the parents seem to think it's great."
