Marriage is hard work — or is it? Ultimately, it depends on who you ask. That’s why a single person on TikTok asked for married folks to explain what they mean when they say it. Because, to many, hearing that marriage is “work” sounds like a huge red flag. Lots of people have responded, but Caitlin McGee’s has to be the best. She answers using her husband’s wedding vows. With them, he explains that marriage takes “work,” but in a good way (content warning for language in the video below.)

“I don’t mean work like drudgery; an early morning commute and stale coffee and watching the clock,” his vows read. “I mean work the way artists talk about paintings as vital and prioritized. It’s the most important work of my life, our partnership, and I cherish it.”
