A good sense of humor is a highly sought after quality in a life partner.

According to extensive research led by Jeffrey Hall, PhD, associate professor of communication studies at the University of Kansas, simply having a funny bone doesn’t mean you two are the perfect match—apparently being able to laugh at the same things makes your partnership even stronger.

hall initially was trying to find a link between humor and intelligence. He conducted many studies over a long span of time, from which he uncovered several other findings, namely, links between humor and both romantic and happy relationships.

“People say they want a sense of humor in a mate, but that’s a broad concept,” Hall says. “That people think you are funny or you can make a joke out of anything is not strongly related to relationship satisfaction. What is strongly related to relationship satisfaction is the humor that couples create together.”

Don’t worry however, you don’t have to be a stand up comic or have your own comedy Netflix special. What truly matters is that you and your partner find the same things funny. From funny memes to funny movies and jokes!

This shared outlook on humor helps build a solid (and humorous) foundation for a long lasting relationship! It provides a bonding point and helps create emotional security.

“If you meet someone whom you can laugh with, it might mean your future relationship is going to be fun and filled with good cheer,” Hall says.

Think of it this way : Sharing a laugh with your partner is like lighting a spark. If you continue laughing together, you will be fanning the flame for a lifetime!
