Living with your significant other is a beautiful thing. Whether you’re married, dating, or just roommates with benefits, there are certain things all couples can relate to. (laundry day, anyone?)
Every relationship is different, but there are some day-to-day things we all seem to do.
These comics were created by an artist named Yehuda Adi Devir. He says, "It all started when we moved to a new apartment and wanted the help of our Facebook friends in sharing our post. We did not really think that there were other people who identified with our intimate moments like sharing a shower."

#5 - The Warm-Blooded One
There’s always one partner who seems to always be a cuddly warm teddy bear, and the other one is cold no matter where you go. If you’re cold, put on a sweater!
#6 - The One Who Remembers
Romantic milestones are important to everyone, even if they don’t remember. If your significant other forgets Valentine’s day, birthdays, or even your anniversary, it’s not because they don’t care. Some people just aren’t wired to remember dates like that. Try giving a gentle reminder a few weeks before, and again a few days before.
#7 - The Drill Sargeant
We all need a little encouragement. A good relationship means supporting each others goals, even if it means pushing each other out of the comfort zone! In this case, He wants to work out, and she is encouraging him to work harder, rather than calling him back to bed to be lazy together.

#9 - The One Who’s Always Late
She says she’ll be just a minute, but she hasn’t even done her makeup. Guys, try to remember that all you need to do to get ready is throw on a t-shirt and grab your wallet… so be patient, and don’t take it for granted!
#10 - The One Who Likes it Hot
Showering together can be fun, but it seems like it’s always either getting left out of the water and freezing to death, or being forced to deal with another’s preference for extremely hot water, and feeling like you’re burning! Try distracting your partner by dropping the soap, then sneaking the water to a lower temperature when they’re not looking.
