30 Funny, Honest Illustrations That Perfectly Show What Life Is Like In A Long-Term Relationship

Many people say that over time, their feelings in their relationships do change. The sparkly and exhilarating rush of falling in love seems to disappear. Sometimes, they feel bored and even tired in a long-term relationship. However, once you find that one person who really loves you, time won’t matter anymore! One year goes by, then three, then five – and in all those years, it’s the small things that show the love and bond you have with each other. Those tiny gestures that never faded kept that faith in each other strong.

And Los Angeles-based artist Amanda Oleander captures these cute long-term couple moments in her illustrations. Amanda gets inspiration mostly from her own relationship with boyfriend Joey Rudman and also gets ideas from other relationships like her sister’s. Her funny and honest illustrations can make many people have to say “That’s so me and my partner!”
