The title says it all, doesn’t it? It’s common occurrence for us to stumble upon long term relationships/marriage bashing memes while scouring the internet. Or maybe even funny forwards on WhatsApp. Or a hilarious picture that ends up on your Facebook timeline. And then there is the debate about how media influences our ideas.
So instead of pointing out the problems….
I decided it’s time for some perks of being in a long term relationship to be highlighted!
Here we go:
Perk #1: Just The Way You Are
Definitely one of the more obvious perks of being in a long term relationship. Bid goodbye to shaving every Friday. Your man loves you. All of you. Even if that means loving your hairy legs. Because he knows how you love not having to shave.
Perk #2: Walk Right In!
While lingerie is quite the mood setter, you don’t have to match your underwear every time it’s ‘sexy time.’ In fact, any time can be ‘sexy time.’ What say? It saves a small fortune and makes for one of the easy sex perks of being in a long term relationship.
Perk #3: Your Own Language Of Love
After a certain point of time, the language goes for a toss. Regular conversations are replaced by baby talk, names are replaced by embarrassing nicknames and communication is via plain gibberish. It is usually so complex that it leaves others guessing as to what just transpired between the two of you! Who said a couple’s parseltongue code is not one of the perks of being in a long term relationship!?
Perk #4: Hold The Front Door
She doesn’t have to dress up all the time. He doesn’t have to be chivalrous all the time. She doesn’t need to wear pants at home, he doesn’t need to wear shirts at home. You don’t have to pretend to be all goody two shoes coz the other person already knows what you are and aren’t.
Perk #5: Foooooood!
This is probably the most important one of the perks of being in a long term relationship. You don’t have to hide and watch and weigh what you eat, how much you eat or how you eat! They have already seen you at your worse and are still here with you. So you don’t have to stop yourself from stealing fries and ordering for a battalion. You can be you coz they’ll still love you.
