Do you and your partner tease each other? A good-natured ribbing or roast could actually be a sign of a healthy and strong relationship!
"You tease because you can and you feel safe enough and comfortable enough with your partner to do it," Lisa says.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho adds that humor is vital and important in a relationship to create and strengthen bonds between people. Dr. Judy says she and her husband often rib each other and she feels it has created a better sense of trust and respect in their relationship.
Dr. Judy also notes it might be best to keep the jokes between you and your partner and to not use a joke as a way to address a real issue in the relationship and being passive-aggressive is never ideal.
