After you get married or form a committed relationship, then love becomes a decision to stay.
Illustrator Yehuda Devir chronicles these moments from his first-hand experience to show what life is like with his wife, Maya.
Many of the panels in One of Those Days depict issues that most couples can see in their daily lives.
What Makes One of Those Days so Engaging?
Numerous comic writers and illustrators have discussed married life over the years.
What makes One of Those Days such an engaging online webcomic is the brutal honesty that you see in each image.
Devir also uses an exaggerated, over-the-top style that works to demonstrate the compromises and humor that become necessary to make love work over the years.
Some of the top illustrations he’s posted over the years include his wife cheating on him by watching the series they were trying to see together, unclogging the bathroom drain, and finding hair in his food.
It’s the Little Touches that Matter with This Webcomic
What many couples find so relatable about Devir’s work is the attention to detail that he puts into each piece.
One of the examples often used is his depiction of finding one of his wife’s hairs in his spaghetti.
Although that part of the webcomic draws a laugh, those who have been in a committed relationship for some time will notice the big pile of dirty pans sitting in the sink.
There’s another image where Devir has his wife scratching his back.
There’s a shelf full of collectible figures in the background, along with an elliptical machine that looks like it hasn’t been used in a while.
It’s not all negative energy.
One particularly memorable panel shows the couple singing their hearts out while driving together in their car.
That’s because married life is about taking the good and the frustrations in stride.
