These are some of the most funny things comedians have to say about marriage.
Ask married couples what the most important qualities are in a spouse and you will probably find “sense of humor”. It’s a good thing! It’s hard to be married, so if you can have a good time and laugh about it, you will be more likely (and each other) to make it work. We have compiled a list of jokes and quotes about marriage from some famous comedians to get you started.

“Why should I buy the cow?” Perhaps because the cow constantly asks you when it’s coming to buy it. You share a tiny apartment with the cow, so you can’t avoid this question.

I don’t want the stories of the struggle to keep sex interesting or the effort it takes to plan a date. I would love to see you guys share every episode of The Bachelorette in secret shame.
