He makes me laugh.
He doesn't even try, most of the time, but he makes me laugh all the time. Sometimes he thanks me for laughing at (or with) him, and not telling him he's being childish or stupid, but I can't imagine chastising him for who he is. He is quick-witted, but also thoughtful with his humor. At family get-togethers, he tells stories that have people rolling on the floor with laughter.
When we're having a hard time, or something in life is getting to us, he'll say, "let me show you this," and he'll bring up some ridiculously silly comedy routine on YouTube, or one of those "people react to..." videos, or animals doing silly things, anything to get us laughing. I always feel better when we laugh together and he knows it. It's good for us to laugh at (with) ourselves and each other, but it's hard to do sometimes when we get caught up in life stuff.
I appreciate so much that he takes the time to keep us laughing.
We also laugh during sex sometimes, which is important too - especially when you're trying new things - laughing is so much better than getting frustrated!
I think a lot of couples and people take themselves too seriously. That puts unnecessary stress on you and your partner. Laughter truly is the best medicine.
I love that my husband makes me laugh.
