Inside jokes
Couples who laugh together last together.

Humor is a powerful repair technique. It can lower the tension of an argument, reduce the division between you and your partner, and remind you that you’re human.

A well-timed inside joke can shift the focus away from your fixed position and toward your shared we-ness.

Remember that repair attempts are the secret weapon of emotionally intelligent couples. Inside jokes are the most secret because they’re your secret.

Action of the day: Watch this clip of Dr. Gottman explaining how to create more shared humor in your marriage.

What does Koru mean?

KORU (kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” For the indigenous people of New Zealand, the koru spiral represents a fern frond beginning to unfurl. The koru symbol embodies new beginnings, a new phase of life, renewal, hope for the future, positive change, personal growth, working in harmony, bringing people together, and being mindful of the good things in life.

At Koru Ceremony, we strive to personify these ideals and celebrate a new beginning through ceremony and ritual.
