    Text - This_Isnt_Progress 14.2k points 9 hours We have the WYK rule. If one of us says, "would you kindly blah blah blah" the other one must, no matter what, do that thing. There is zero negotiation. It's mostly whipped out for benign stuff, sometimes for very silly stuff, but occasionally used in serious situations. It's equal parts silly, fake outage, and a deep, committed trust. It only works because we trust each other not to abuse WYK or use it for evil.

    Text - SoManyStarWipes 12.7k points 11 hours ago S Whenever he sneezes, I shout as aggressively as I can SHUT UP. To which he responds even louder, YOU SHUT UP. This is everywhere. At home, in public, it doesn't matter. It's gotten to the point where I consciously have to stop myself from shouting at anyone else who sneezes.

    Text - pandabunny20 12.5k points 8 hours ago edited 5 minutes ago A... Alright this will take some explaining but me and my husband have a game we call business business. I can't fully remember how it came about but the goal is to fully and completely clasp the other persons right hand in yours and shake it twice while repeating "business business". If the other person can get their hand free or shout "business business" at the same time it's a failed attempt. We don't keep score but the last pe

    Text - Felicius Flamel 9.7k points 13 hours ago We talk to each other sometimes in different voices and characters we "Collected" over the years to make the other laugh/annoyed/uncomfortable etc and just fuck with SO. I often do speak with various accents while she pitches her voice super high and we keep going til one of us gives up.

    Text - Banana_Turtle_ 9.5k points 12 hours ago 2 Probably "kissy sonar". I am very extroverted and need my existence to be acknowledged every once in awhile. My wife is extremely introverted so conversations constantly are a big no no. So we make kissing noises around the house every now and then as a kind of "I love you, everything's fine over here- you ok?"A kissy back and we both continue doing our own thing in silence. No kissy back means trying a louder kissy noise, waiting 5 seconds, and w

    Text - jpwp99 8.8k points 11 hours ago We have a mating dance that has gotten increasingly elaborate in the decade we have been together. Example moves: slapping one's own butt, moving one's arms like a choo choo train, one handed clapping. Some of the moves go out of fashion year to year, but we have a significant repertoire.

    Text - lululemonkush 5.5k points 10 hours ago Award.. Sometimes he puts his mouth over my nose and blows, causing me to make a horrific, monstrous sound of air coming through my nasals and out of my mouth. We call this The Exorcism. It's gross and weird but I love that we can be gross and weird together.

    Text - joeyboii23 5.4k points 9 hours ago Me and my girlfriend have started using very random and increasing complex pet names when we answer a phonecall from one another. Its so often now that sometimes i'll forget and in public loudly answer with "hello my Persian tropical icecream sweety watermelon minx." Or something to that effect, it changes everytime.

    Text - emt1986 20.7k points 9 hours ago He absolutely must touch my butt at least once every time we go to Walmart. I can't even remember how this started, but it's totally fucking weird if we forget. And Floor Dollar. A dollar bill that had fallen out of one of our pockets in the washer, and consequently fell down into the crack between the machines when I was transferring the clothes to the dryer. We both ignored it for like year because were too lazy to use a broom or whatever to fish it out,

    Text - S_Runaway 18.3k points 9 hours ago edited 1 hour ago When me and my ex would get into dumb arguments/debates we used to "send it to council to be reviewed". There was no council. There would be no review. It was basically our way of shelving an argument that would never have a winner. Every now and then we'd ask each other if we've gotten an update from council on what the judgement was.
