An ode to couples that don't suck.

If you want me to be completely honest here, some couples suck.

Maybe that's harsh, but it's the truth. There are some couples who, when you log a few hours with them, they just absolutely suck the life out of you. Whether it's because they're constantly bickering, or wayyy too affectionate, or only into each other, whatever. They just suck. And when you finally wrangle free of their grasp it's like the heavens open up and you're all THANKTHELUCKYSTARSIMSINGLESTILL.

Where am I going with this? Well a few weeks ago a small group of us began planning a trip down to Louisville. Specifically for bridesmaid dress shopping, less specifically for Thunder Over Louisville and shenanigans. 

When I realized this 'small group' would consist of two engaged couples, myself, and one of my best girlfriends, I was slightly hesitant. Was I signing myself up for a weekend of pre-wedded-bliss torture? 

Fast forward (rewind then fast forward?) through this past weekend, I remember making it a point to tell them on the ride home how glad I was that they didn't suck as a couple.

We chatted, we shopped, we ate, we drank, we ooh'ed and ahh'ed over airplanes and fireworks, we laughed until our abs burned and tears were streaming down our face, and then we ate and drank some more.

Truth be told, there was more than one occasion where watching them together warmed my icy heart up a little. Maybe ALL relationships aren't absolutely dreadful. Maybe.

In closing, congrats (and thank you) on not sucking, Courtney & Legends, and Amelia & Andy. I want to be you one day when I grow up.

How come I am never in Louisville when you come?? Not fair. So glad you had a great time at Thunder!

I know what you mean about sucky couples. I really hope Shawn and I don't suck as a couple! We're not into PDA and don't constantly need to be around each other to feel secure in our relationship. But I'll let you be the judge if we ever get to hang out!

SOme couples do suck, especially when you cant have a girls night without a husband tagging along.

Nice awkward photo bomb with.. what is that? a hotdog? hahaah

Yup I know a few couples like that and it is literally exhausting spending time with them. Thankfully with the Army we don't have to spend too much time with people we don't like because we always move eventually haha.

Love it! We all have those couples that you want to just tear your hair out after a while of hanging out.
