If you’ve been in a strong relationship with someone for several years, you probably sometimes make fun of those couples who have just started dating. Well, because they have only romance in their eyes now, they have no worries, everything for them is easy and simple. But now you really know how dramatically things change after a couple of years of marriage!
Marriage or a long relationship definitely changes us. It’s not without reason that there are saying: “With each passing year, lovers treat each other differently and have different concerns and interests”. In fact, there is a certain amount of excitement in the family routine, but the romance is definitely not good for it. That’s what Simon Rich and Farley Katz say in their book “Kama Sutra for the Long Married”.
Well enough words, let’s just move on to the comics (and laugh, and at the same time get sad).
“The Everlasting dishwasher story” pose
When the husband loads the dishwasher and the wife comes in and moves it because, of course, he did it all wrong.
“The Children are our main thing” pose
It’s when you’re ready to make love, but then a child falls into bed with you because he’s scared or can’t sleep or something.
“The Down with decency and standards” pose
This is when the husband, not embarrassed and not even thinking to apologize, starts farting in front of his wife.
Are you having fun yet? Then you’ve definitely been married for a long time. 🙂
A few words about the authors of these masterpieces:
- Simon Rich is a talented young screenwriter who wrote for Pixar Animation Studios. He now lives and works in Hollywood, working on big comedies;
- Farley Katz is an artist who made a name for himself with cool cartoons in The New Yorker, a solid, smart magazine. That’s where the first drawings in the “Kamasutra for the Long Married” series, a series that later became a stand-alone book, came out. In reviews on Amazon and other sites, many couples admit that they recognized themselves and…they didn’t like it much. Even though it was funny.
What’s there to say? The guys are talented. Although this comic pictures reminds us of something (do you remember “Love Is” named gum?). In any case, the idea is very good. Let’s now look at what other funny “family poses” they drew.
“The Whales washed ashore” pose
It’s when a husband and wife have had too much to eat somewhere and are lying at home after that, being unable to talk, cuddle, or make love.
“The Stubborn goat” pose
It’s when the wife drags her husband to the store to buy some new clothes (because he hasn’t changed his closet in years).
“The Wounded hippo” pose
It’s when the wife looks at the muscular longshoreman with interest, and the husband catches a playful glint in her eyes that he hasn’t seen in a long time.
“The Almost gotcha” pose
That’s when the wife suddenly walked into the room and the husband barely had time to slam the laptop.
“The One minute of peace” pose
It’s when the husband is out with friends at a soccer game or a bar or something, and the wife takes a hot, relaxing bath and pours wine.
“The Gloating doves” pose
This is your reaction to another couple arguing in front of you, but you realize they have bigger problems than you do, and you wink at each other.
