All’s fair in love and war – we all have different techniques that get us through fights with our significant others and for one Twitter user his is photoshop. Instead of shouting, storming out or saying mean things user @Tgflx1 take a more humorous approach when he gets mad.

In a thread, he shared multiple before and after photos, he had edited and uploaded when he was mad at his partner – and the result is pretty funny (hopefully to her as well). Renowned relationship psychologist John Gottman says that couples who use humor during a conflict are often more successful in the long run than couples who don’t. Judging on this couple’s fighting tactics we think they might be able to stand the test of time.

Researchers found that those couples who tease each other have the strongest relationships. It was discovered over the course of 39 studies that involved over 15,000 people and lasted for more than 30 years. But there are two things to keep in mind when applying this strategy, or else miscommunication could occur. The first is that it is important that the couple have a shared sense of humor. One of the researchers, Hall, noted that humor is a wide concept, so not everyone has the same idea of what is funny.

Couples with a shared sense of humor have stronger relationships. The second thing is that humor should “provide life to a relationship, inspire laughter, and lighten problems.” Going too far to the point of mean jokes about one another using sarcasm, repetition, or mocking, is unhealthy. “Having an aggressive sense of humor is a bad sign for the relationship,” stated Hall.
