Watching The Debate, We Were All Like ...

We watched the debate so you didn't have to. You'll probably never be able to repay us, cause seriously that was painful.

So last night the wait was finally over! President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney were ready to rumble.


And like many Americans, we were ready to watch it go down.

Then they started talking, and they said all these numbers and statistics and stuff and it got hard to figure out whether they were actually saying anything.

But there were raised voices and a lot of interruptions, so we were like...

And then Mitt Romney kept interrupting … and interrupting. And he wouldn't let Lehrer finish a sentence.

Speaking of the "moderator," Lehrer was basically useless.

Mostly he said "er," "um," and "but I, uh…" and the candidates just went on not really saying anything substantive, so we were all...

She bought the perfect wedding dress that went viral on TikTok. It was only $3.75.

Lynch is part of a growing crowd of newlyweds going against the regular wedding tradition of spending loads of money.

Lynch posted her bargain hunt on TikTok, sharing that she had been perusing thrift shops in Ohio for four days in a row, with the actual ceremony being only a month away. Lynch then displays an elegant ivory-colored Camila Coelho dress. Fitting perfectly, still brand new and with the tags on it, no less.

You can find that exact same dress on Revolve for $220. Lynch bought it for only $3.75.

That’s exactly what happened to Diane Ward and Mary McLaughlin. The women were born three years apart and were adopted, but neither knew the other existed until submitting a DNA test through MyHeritage. It took them 56 years to learn of one another.

Even the perfect marriage (if there was such a thing) would have its daily frustrations. Funnily enough, most fights aren't caused by big decisions but the simple, day-to-day questions, such as "What do you want for dinner?"; "Are we free Friday night?"; and "What movie do you want to see?"

Here are some hilarious tweets that just about every married couple will understand.
