Proof That A Relationship Just Starts To End At “I Do”

Do you ever notice that as soon as people get married their relationship starts to end? I’m honestly not trying to be cynical here, I love love, but it’s just something I’ve noticed.

When you get married to someone, I think that’s when you really start to know your partner. You get to know their habits, quirks, and everything that makes you all shades of frustrated. 

Marriage can be hard, and getting to know your partner, can be even harder. However, marriage is also a beautiful thing because although your partner may leave their socks everywhere or keeps you up all night because they refuse to get help for their snoring situation, at the end of the day, they’re your person. 

So, if you are currently annoyed with your partner, I hope these images gathered by Dadpatrol give you a real laugh because you know, more than anyone, that sometimes the way to get through marriage is to laugh it off. 

You know your relationship starts to end when your husband realizes just how much you spend

A relationship starts to end when you stop talking to each other before decisions. So, if you’re one of those couples who talk to each other before every purchase and spend relatively equal to each other, I have one question. How do you do it?

Because from where I’m standing, it looks like there’s always one person in the relationship who spends way more than the other.

Do you know that game where people tend to guess how long a newlywed couple is going to last?

I can tell you this if my partner did this at our wedding, that will be when our relationship starts to end.

The dog is the ultimate competition

What is it about dogs whose love forces us into a silent competition to be the favorite dog parent?

I’m pretty sure that this problem is a problem in every marriage. It’s like as soon as it hits 2 am, one person all of a sudden likes to roll over and become a blanket thief in the middle of the night. 

When you’re not exactly on the same page about groceries

A relationship starts to end when you are SO on different pages with your communications.

This one made me do a big fat facepalm. I know there’s a partner that usually goes to the grocery shop but 40 tortillas!!?? 

You know a relationship is about to end when food expiration dates are the only dates on the calendar

Get ready for a hot and steamy calendar date of the ham expiring because that’s the most excitement you’ve had in months! 

Just kidding, but it does feel like when you get married, date nights are just….gone? Or maybe that’s a sign that it’s a relationship about to end.

Karen, just let the dog get married

I’m with Floyd on this one. Gotcha! 

But seriously, if your partners always mad at you and this is what you are spending your money on, how have you not pieced the two together yet? Or maybe you have and the dogs just more important because well… it’s a dog.

Your relationship is about to end when you go from baby to ‘Jennifer

Remember the days when our partners used to call us babe, honey, and dear. Unfortunately, that was pre-marriage. Get ready for your husband to re-name you to your first and last name.

Do relationships start to end when they stop calling us by our pet names?

If you’d rather punch your partner than kiss them, your relationship is about to end my friend

If you’ve had this moment with your significant other, just know, I feel you. But please, before we turn to violence, might I suggest a light conversation about WHY you want to punch them?

No matter how old you are, it always comes back to your booty. That’s all I’m going to say about this one.

When you consider your husband’s niceness suspicious

I hate to break it to you, but if your husband is NICE and you think that it’s suspicious because it’s so out of character for him. I don’t know, maybe, get a new husband? Because that relationship is about to end.

Such a common question and I don’t know why it hurts so much. 

I once asked an ex-boyfriend if he would still love me if I gained 300 pounds. He said no, so yeah, now he’s an ex.
