If you are in a relationship which doesn’t really care to be mushy but more on roasting and making fun of each other (in a really funny manner) then your relationship is meant to survive. Such relationships are believed to be more honest and natural with less involvement of clichéd stuff. Also, in the form of roasting, you can vent out all your grudges in a funny manner without really hurting your partner by being serious.
According to psychologists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) in a study recently published in the 'Journal of Research in Personality', "People who are afraid of being laughed at, on the other hand, are often less happy in their relationship. This also affects their partner and their sexuality."
Dr. Gil Greengross of the University of New Mexico explains that,"A sense of humor makes you more attractive."
If you need a proof about it, we have an example of Comedy Central Roasts where the participants roast each other to getting together and also call upon a guest of honor to roast him on stage. And the only motive is to make clear that these words are not intended to burn bridges but playfully burn (or roast) them as their nature is love. Also, to give a good time for the audience.
Research from Appalachian State University says that your sarcasm now has the perfect place, in your partners face. Basically, in a face off. The meaner you are, the deeper your love, the happier you'll stick along. This was studied further and it was concluded that "The degree of the strength can also be assessed by the degree of insults willing to be tolerated."
Psychology says "Insults can be spoken in two primary manners: seriously and in jest. In the former case, the harm is intended. Despite our best intentions, ill-phrased or poorly-timed jokes can do harm in much the same way that a serious insult can."
