Marriage is all about two individuals coming together to form a bond that can last through thick and thin. It’s a beautiful idea that has spurred romances, love stories, and passion throughout pretty much all of history. But what you don’t hear about is the funny side of marriage.
Sometimes, the happiest marriages are all about knowing your partner well enough to be able to guess the best ways to get them to laugh. That’s why we love hearing about wives who tease and prank their husbands with fun little tricks.
We’ve scoured the Internet for some of the funniest spousal pranks and have created a list that’s sure to make you smile. So check out these 45 hilarious wives who won’t give their husbands a break.
1. What you say can and will be used against you
This husband made the mistake of calling his spouse a sandwich maker. So when he got into work one day and checked his lunch, he found a special message and an incomplete sandwich. Looks like she didn’t appreciate being given an unflattering title. What do you think he called her when he got home?
2. Candy crush? How about Sweets Stash
This wife was tired of her husband stealing her favorite candy bars. So she hid them in the last place he would ever think to look. We don’t know how he discovered the secret, but it’s hilarious to imagine his surprise.
3. A photo of the best parts
This husband and wife duo wanted to take a photo together in some of their best outfits. But they couldn’t quite capture everything in one shot with the room they had. So the wife suggested a compromise; keep the shoes and cut off the top of his head. We’re sure he doesn’t mind with those gorgeous heels.
4. A Holiday Prank
We’ll save the argument about whether this Bruce Willis movie is a Christmas movie or not. Instead, let’s focus on this prank a wife played on her husband. When she asked him to change the air filter, he removed the panel to discover a picture of John McClane crawling through the air ducts. Yippie-Ki-Yay!
5. Lewd Nudes
This husband couldn’t wait for the surprise gift his wife gave him. A sweet letter, a promise for fun times to come, and nudes. How could it go wrong? Well…here’s one way.
6. Painful and Educational
This image came to this husband in the dead of night. While she said it was all about sharing her pregnancy discomfort it could be a message as well. Maybe he should sleep with one eye open in case his wife decides to make use of extra yarn and string.
7. Will you, won’t you?
This Valentine’s Day card starts off sweet and cuddly until you open it up. Then it sets in that your valentine is always by your side. We hope this husband has a great sense of humor since this is actually really funny.
8. The Ninja Manicure
This couple made a bet that the wife would never be able to shave her husband’s leg without his notice. Well, she went above and beyond the call by shaving his foot and giving his nails a cute pink polish. Never underestimate how skilled a spouse gets when a bet’s on the line.
9. A Thanksgiving Hint?
This husband’s favorite show will never be the same again. Because of a prank image his wife sent him, now he’ll be thinking about sweet hams whenever the caped crusader’s show is brought up. Maybe it’s worth it for the smiles and laughs.
10. A prickly pair
This guy’s wife found something that just made them lose it outside one day. That would be one thing, but they had to share their discoveries with their husband and all their friends and family. Can you imagine being the poor guy who has to explain this to the family? Well, at least one husband can.
11. Hi, Aaron!
This wife had a clever plan to prank her husband on April Fool’s Day. But she went much further than doing it on her own and got everyone on the road to join the fun. Imagine driving to work and having complete strangers greet you by name. Would that freak you out or would you laugh when you figured out what happened?
12. Next time, specify
When you ask this man’s wife to surprise you, you never know what you’ll get. Her husband wanted a pic and we’re sure he meant something sexy showing off his beautiful wife. But when left to dealer’s choice, he scored a picture of a balding woman. Hope he learned his lesson for next time.
13. The incredible disappearing wife
This husband came home and had trouble finding his wife. Turns out she was

14. Sharing is caring
Sharing is important in any relationship as long as it’s done evenly. That’s why this wife was very careful to tell her husband that he already ate his half of this cake. So hopefully he respects that and leaves the rest alone.
15. Pizza wreaths
This spouse was tired of getting new pizza ads at their door. So they made a decoration to tell the pizza people that they were overdoing it by quite a bit. We don’t know if it worked, but at least her husband had a fun story to tell.
16. Ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
This man’s wife was looking through some photos when she started laughing for no reason. She rushed out and brought back their dog’s flea pillbox because the dog on the cover had a resemblance to her husband. Not sure how he felt, but this had to be pretty ruff.
17. Much ado about lazy
This couple decided to try and train the cat to turn off the light for them. We don’t know if it worked, but can you imagine using a laser pointer to try and automate a simple task? Wonder if they tried to train the cat to get their keys before they went off to work.
18. Number two Shampoo
This man’s wife is a fan of toilet humor, quite literally. So she proudly showed off a small adjustment to their shampoo bottle to make a potty joke. We bet she teased him for having poo in his hair after his next shower.
19. Twisty Bet
Some wives are willing to go to crazy heights to win a bet. This man’s wife was one of them who fit herself in her husband’s suitcase and took a picture to prove that she could. How does this even come up in conversation? It sounds like a 90’s comedy in the works.
20. Put in their place
This couple has certain rules about driving. The good boy rides in the front and the husband rides in the back. Was this husband in trouble for something or does he just like having the extra leg and resting space? It still leaves a funny image for passing cars.
21. Caged by her purchase
This wife was drunk one day and purchased a Nicholas Cage pillow for their home. You’d think she’d put it away or sell it when she sobered up, but she actually loves her purchase. Now the couple can quote Cage lines whenever they need a cheap giggle. Not the Bees!
22. Sir ___ a lot
This man’s wife wanted to give her husband a personalized gift and what better way to do that than to add his name. But then you notice that the name isn’t actually his, we hope. If it’s a nickname, let’s hope we never figure out why.
23. Boning up
This man’s wife bought a model skeleton one day and never said why. It wasn’t until he came home to this scene that he realized what she was up to. Guess he caught this Skelemans on bonehub. The Reddit post has a lot of equally bad puns so beware.
24. The eyes had it
This man’s wife couldn’t sleep so she did the logical thing and added eyes to everything in their fridge. From the milk to the cheese and everything in between. What do you think he said when he opened his fridge to find his food looking back at him?
25. Juggling two lives
Most spouses have secret stashes of items they don’t want anyone to know about. But why was this man’s wife hiding a book on juggling? Did she have a secret dream of running away with the circus or was this part of a project?
26. All these labels
This woman loved using her labeler on everything, including the baby. But why put a label on the baby? Maybe she was worried he’d forget the important things around the house. Wonder what else she ended up labeling.
27. Creepy and spooky
This husband came home to his bathroom and found this scary addition to the room. Whatever he wanted to do, hopefully, he wasn’t scared so bad that he made a mess in his pants. You have to wonder what inspired this interesting design choice.
28. Spellcheck, please
It was this husband’s birthday and his wife wanted to give him a special mug. But this mug wouldn’t say “world’s best dad” instead it’d have a little fun at his expense. So imagine how he felt when he read this message.
29. Flowchart to flavor town
This couple has a plan to limit dirty dishes and it’s expressed in this handy flow chart. We imagine this wife made the chart after seeing one too many dirty pots in the sink to make a single serving of fried eggs. We love the message to double-check and make sure at the bottom.
30. Edible McBouquet
In a brilliant combination of sweet and traditional and warm and tasty, this husband got a chicken nugget bouquet. Just imagine chowing down on these fun flowers while you’re on the way to work. Wonder if she added some ranch dressing or BBQ sauce for dipping.
31. Filthy language
Some people do say dirty talk is a great part of a relationship, but we don’t think they mean this. This man discovered how upset their wife was about the forgotten laundry that’s been piling up. Maybe if he wants sexy talk he’ll actually take care of the laundry when he gets home.
32. Soft and sweet
This man’s spouse was going to be out of town for a while on business. So she thought it’d be sweet to set up her favorite lingerie to give him something to help him through the lonely nights to come. Wonder what she’d do if he bought some new underwear and replaced it?
33. Idle wives do the silly work
This baby was left alone with a very silly mother while their dad was away on business. So she’d send him text images of silly gags including this googly-eyed baby picture. It’s a great way to get him to come home sooner, but can you imagine how the child will feel if they see this later?
34. T stands for…
This birthday cake is special since it features one of the cornerstones of a long-lasting marriage; tolerance. It may seem like a negative message, but it’s important for a couple to overcome the things that annoy them. At least, let’s hope that this husband didn’t do anything wrong recently.
35. Booty on the mind
This couple’s Keurig machine was personalized with something that’s always on the wife’s mind. You have to wonder though, is she part-pirate or does she just really like booty. Let’s just hope they didn’t get booty-flavored coffee since that’d taste like…well booty.
36. Give peas a chance
Well, this couple found a car with a strong message on their license plate. So what could the wife do but leave a bag of peas to defy the vegetable hater? No idea what the car’s owner said, but we hope they had a good sense of humor about the prank.
37.Fashion advice by Wife
Did this man actually need help deciding what was and was not good to wear for work? Maybe this was just a prank based on how wild the clothes on the left side of the closet were. Still, maybe he appreciates the help in deciding what won’t get him strange looks at his job.
38. A sexy reminder
This woman’s husband clearly has trouble leaving for work without his lunch. So she decided on a clever way to get him to pay attention and get his lunch on the way out. But you have to wonder if he ever bothered looking below the distraction.
39. Dog-gone Dino
It takes a special kind of drunk to turn your pup into a dinosaur and then start singing about it. Her husband had a great sense of humor about it and was just content to snap photos and post about it. Just makes us wonder if someone called the dog a clever girl.
40. Don’t sleep
This man had a hard-earned lesson when he discovered what happens when he falls asleep near his make-up artist wife. But you know, he doesn’t look bad in make-up so clearly, she’s great at her job. Bet they had a good laugh about it when he woke up.
