There’s a reason your best friends are your best friends: they know everything about you, including the nasty stuff. So why assume the nasty stuff will ruin the romance in your relationship? Nothing brings a couple together quite like a trip to the emergency room, a bout with the stomach flu, or an unbearably embarrassing evening together after a few helpings of mom’s homemade baked beans. Embrace the bad moments, laugh at yourself, and cry if you need to. You’ll have lots of opportunities to dress up and be the best version of yourself; the crazy stories and memories of worrying about each other during the bad times are what keeps a relationship strong.
