The world we live in can be tough, but nothing makes life go smoother than good humor, which happens to be just as, if not more, important in our romantic relationships. One of the first things that people say they look for in a mate is the ability to make him or her laugh.

You don't have to be a standup comedian to make your partner laugh. The real humor is found in the everyday moments that you share. How long your relationship will last could depend on humor.

Humor reduces stress.

Laughter is scientifically proven to reduce stress levels and has both short-term and long-term benefits. At the end of the day, who cares? You have your partner.

It brings couples closer together.

Even when you're upset with your partner, it's difficult to be in your feelings when you're cracking up. All it takes is one good joke and laughing together is like couples therapy.

It makes tough times a little easier.

Every relationship falls on hard times occasionally. Couples argue, break up and get back together.

You can always cheer each other up.

After a long day at work, a good laugh with the person you love is enough to get your mind off all of the things that got under your skin. When all you need is the two of you to have a great time nothing else matters.

Couples that laugh together tend to stay together.

According to research published in the journal, Evolutionary Psychology couples who share the same sense of humor and laugh together are more likely to stay together longer.
