It's Not About the Nail - A Funny Truth About Marriage

This funny video, titled ‘It’s Not About The Nail’ depicts the hilarious argument that every married couple finds themselves in from time to time.


We all know that marriage can be tough. You must learn to live with another person and compromise on certain issues. Writer and director Jason Headley decided to show the more humorous side of marriage with this short video. In the clip, you see a couple chatting together on the couch.

The woman is venting about a relentless feeling that she has and the pain just won’t go away. That’s when the camera pans to reveal a nail sticking out of her forehead. Instantly, the man wants to solve the issue and remove the nail. However, the woman just wants to be heard. She says, "Don't try to fix it. I just need you to listen."

This might be a quote that many of us have heard throughout the years. It’s a common joke that woman just want to vent and the man isn’t sure how to reciprocate those feelings. This may be an exaggeration, but there’s definitely some underlying truth for some of us.

Even though there may be disagreements in our relationships, it’s so important to remember what the union is truly about. It’s all a continuing balancing act, but when we put God first, He will guide us on the right path.

Hebrews 10:24-25: “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
