Certain couples tend to have an unspoken language with each other that only they seem to understand. Whether it's an ongoing tradition, or a decade long inside joke, these quirks tend to show just how comfortable they truly are with each other. Redditor u/Maraidlg asked: "What’s the weirdest thing that you and your partner do together?" and the responses are surprisingly wholesome.

    Pretending To Be Tech Support For His 'Wifebot' Robot

    From Redditor u/TortleAbyss:

    I text him pretending to be tech support for his Wifebot robot. I’m old so I’m a Classic model, and there are often problems with annoying downloads (our children) causing malfunctions. I guess you had to be there…

    From Redditor u/slevin_kelevra22:

    This is amazing. Is it stuff like, "Hello, this message is to inform you that your Wifebot is due for her monthly recharge. She will require 1 bottle of wine and a movie of her choice."

    From Redditor u/DeadLined784:

    This is hilarious, I am totally stealing it.

    Stripping To Avoid Going Out To Get Anything

    From Redditor u/MamaSquash8013:

    Before we had a kid, we used to strip to avoid running out for anything. It started with "you run out, I don't have any shoes on." Then one day I mentioned we were out of milk, and neither of us had shoes on. My husband immediately dropped his pants around his ankles and declared "I don't have pants on either." After that, every time one of us would say "oh, we're all out of *blank*..." we would exchange a quick glance and immediately start stripping to see who could be the farthest from "ready to leave the house." Good times.

    From Redditor u/Gaiiiiil:

    Now that they have a kid, it’s a race to get the shoes on and have a minute of peace while running errands.

    Whispering 'Fear' Into Each Other's Ear

    From Redditor u/Daedalus0313:

    My wife and I have an unspoken thing we've done to each other for 10+ years where we sneak up behind each other, grab the other's butt, and if the grabee's butt tenses up the grabber will whisper, "Fear..." If the grabee goes without tensing up, then it's usually "OH?! NO FEAR FOR YOU?!" I have no idea where it came from or how it started, but it's a joke that's endured almost as long as our marriage and made for some funny moments over the years.

    From Redditor u/PumpkinManGuy:

    I know you only do this in private, but I belly laughed at work, while going to the bathroom, to the mental image of some woman approaching her husband while he was giving a presentation at work and doing that.

    Trapping Each Other In Their T-Shirts

    From Redditor u/FillinThaBlank:

    Sometimes, we take the t-shirt we’re wearing, and trap the other persons head under it, holding them to our stomachs and telling them that they are now safe.

    From Redditor u/bobtheturd:

    I have a modified version of this where I try to crawl Into my husbands shirt through the bottom while he’s wearing it, pop my head out of the head hole so we’re a two-headed beast and say hi to him.

    From Redditor u/Eldrxtch:

    I literally do this with my partner but when I do it to her I say, “get in there’s no time to explain!”

    Having A Call And Response When Looking For Each Other In A Store

    From Redditor u/MisanthropicRN:

    When we can’t find each other in the store we “bloop” and the other person replies with a long “blooop” until we locate each other. When people are around they’re pretty quiet which maybe makes it more awkward/creepy for the passerby.

    From Redditor u/owlfoxer:

    I do Marco/Polo with my wife when we can’t find each other at the store. However, we call each other Marco even when we aren’t looking for each other. Someone has actually asked if her real name is Marco. She also calls me Marco, but I could pass as a Marco — so no weird looks that way.

    Putting On Goofy Voices In Public

    From Redditor u/Corvideye:

    The goofing voices in public. It’s made worse by the fact I’m 60 and she’s 50. Grocery aisle or any other store and one of us sees something cool, boom. Fake, exaggerated, whatever the f*ck accent we can contrive and, “Ooooh! So verah fanceh!” Then the other chimes in, “So verah fanceh! What does it do?” And off we go. 

    From Redditor u/yearofthesquirrel:

    Sounds like a couple I saw at the zoo. They came around the corner to the bear enclosure where there was a sun bear hanging out. "Oh Simon. Isn't it fabulous?" I'm like, 'It's a bear. Being a bear.'
