30 Relationship Memes That Are So Relatable, It Hurts


(Last Updated on August 26, 2023 by Datezie Editors)

There’s a reason relationship memes go viral: no matter if you’re single, divorced, married, engaged or somewhere in between ‘em all, they’re incredibly relatable. Most of these one-to-two liners sum up the fight you last had with your partner, the date you went on that went sour fast or the painful conversation you had with your mom about why you’re, yes, still looking for the right person. As relationship memes have grown exponentially in popularity, Instagrammers have taken note, starting accounts that linger in the millions. So, why are they so trendy? Consider these memes the digital equivalent of a sarcastic and pun-filled greeting card, where you’re able to send the right message to your pal who is dealing with a breakup, annoyed with her husband or wondering when the marriage-and-baby tango will finally give them a whirl. If you’re looking for the right phrase to make you feel better or to inspire a hearty chuckle in your best pal, scroll through these for relationship memes so relatable… it hurts.

Marriage Memes

Does marriage really change everything? Ask happy couples and they’ll say ‘yes’ and ‘no’: your connection remains strong, but you have a new sense of commitment toward one another.
