Are You Having Fun In Your Marriage? – “Well give it a shot” [VIRAL VIDEO]

Work, sacrifice, submission, challenging, no joke, not for the faint of heart.  You have probably heard all of those words used to describe marriage.  Sometimes we make marriage seem like only those who enjoy pain and suffering will enjoy it.  But what about the fun?  Can marriage be fun?  Are you having fun in your marriage?

A marriage without fun…is no fun!

When my wife and I were dating we had a lot of fun.  We joked, we partied, we did fun things.  I admit, after being married with kids, it seemed those other words were a better description of our marriage.  It seemed we lost some of what we had.  We lost the fun in our marriage.

Fortunately, as we’ve been more intentional about growing our relationship and strengthening our marriage, we’ve regained some of that.  We have fun together again, even without our kids.  Imagine that, two grown, married folks having fun, sans kids!  Yes, it is possible.

How can you get the fun back in your marriage?

If you have lost the fun in your marriage.  If you miss having fun with your spouse.  Maybe one, or both of you, can loosen up a little.  Let loose and have fun.

Below is a viral YouTube video of a couple who knows how to have fun.  They seem to let loose and just enjoy themselves.  No matter where they are!  Their willingness to let loose and have fun even landed them a spot on national TV.

Be ready to have fun anywhere…anytime

This couple, Will and Monifah Sims, got “caught” on The Tonight Show during Jay Leno’s “Pumpcast News”, where gas customers are surprised at the pump by a news anchor who can actually see and hear them.

The husband is asked to choose a song to sing karaoke.  Of all the songs to choose, he surprisingly chooses “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi…and kills it!  Then he asks his wife to join him.  She chooses “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics and proceeds to kill it herself!

This is how you have fun in your marriage!

Enough!  Watch it for yourself.  The lyrics are included below the video.  Believe me you will knod your head and want to sing along, and like me, you probably do not know the lyrics!  Enjoy and “give it a shot”…

Start having fun in your marriage again. [Tweet this]

“Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi

Tommy used to work on the docks
Unions been on strike
He’s down on his luck… it’s tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man, she brings home her pay
For love – for love

She says we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
Cause it doesn’t make a difference
If we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
For love – well give it a shot

Chorus:
Whooah, we’re half way there
Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it – I swear
Livin on a prayer

“Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Hold your head up; keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on
Keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on
Keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on
Keep your head up

Question: What is the most spur of the moment fun thing you’ve done with your spouse?
