Anyone in a long-term relationship can tell you that it’s important to keep the spice alive. After all, things can get boring quickly if you aren’t willing to keep each other on your toes. While some people go out for a once a week date night or surprise their lover with flowers, others have gotten a bit more creative with their behavior. Here are some of the funniest examples of men who went all out to keep their partner entertained. Stick around for #18 & #10 – they’re the funniest!

This guy’s wife had a birthday coming up and when he asked her what she’d like to do to celebrate she responded by saying she’d just like a run-of-the-mill birthday party. So that’s exactly what he gave. Peep the horribly generic birthday card and cake – now that’s a dedicated man.

Next, we have a very concerned hubby who made sure his wife’s limbs would stay intact!

Sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do! That’s what this dedicated soon-to-be father thought when his wife refused to take maternity pictures. He decided that he’d show off his own baby – food baby that is!

This next hubby decided to replace his wife with the next best thing and you won’t believe his dinner arrangements…

29. Formal Dinner

His wife left town and he started to get pretty bored. “I’m going to have a formal dinner with the cats,” he joked. Suddenly he realized that it was no longer a joke. Look how sharp they’re all looking, it even looks like the cats are wearing tuxedos because of their coat.

When his girlfriend went out of town to get a vacation, she asked him to watch over her tortoise. Her specific instructions? Make sure the tortoise stays out of trouble. Seems like this wild party tortoise is unstoppable.

The cat started out normal looking, that was until she let her boyfriend take the cat to the groomers. Now she’s stuck with a Catzilla. At least the cat looks pretty content with his new punk rock look.

26. Ugly Shoes

A man posted this photo on reddit with the following caption: My girlfriend said if I could find uglier footwear, she would stop poking fun at my crocs. We’re still dying to know if she thinks these are any uglier than the fashion atrocity that is Crocs.

25. Same Difference

His girlfriend sent him a photo of the Dallas Aquarium. He quickly rebutted with a photo of his own from Target. According to him: “They’re virtually indistinguishable.”

We’re still here scratching our heads over which one is which?

Who needs regular ol’ poetry when you can get refrigerator magnet poetry of this caliber? At least, that’s what this guy thought when he wrote this up for his wife. She didn’t seem to appreciate it as much…

“I ask my husband if he realizes he has never actually painted us both in the same painting so he paints this masterpiece.”

If this doesn’t demonstrate what true love is all about then we’re not sure what will. It’s no wonder that this wife’s post went viral after her initial post. A lot of married couples can easily relate to this.

22. Love Notes

When she told her boyfriend that she preferred Pepsi over Coke, she didn’t expect anything of it. After all, this has been an ongoing debate ever since Pepsi made its way onto the soda scene.
