What Is The Secret Of Tom And Cynthia’s Happy Marriage
Tom and Cynthia have been married for about 20 years and have two teenage daughters together. The fact that Cynthia is a comedian herself helps her keep her cool when her husband makes jokes about her. Tom has told Review-Journal that he can make jokes about Cynthia because she “can separate herself from the wife character in my stand-up” because she has worked in the industry for a long time. In another stand-up special at Guild Hall a few years ago, he said, “I could say anything about my wife and she would just laugh.”
But as time has gone on and Tom’s popularity has grown, Cynthia has started to ask him not to talk about certain things in his comedy. He told Review-Journal, “Things will happen in our relationship, and she’ll be like, ‘Don’t talk about this!'” “But what I hear her say is, ‘Let’s talk about this later,'” the comic says as a joke.

In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Tom Papa said that “lowering your expectations” is the key to a good marriage. He says that marriage isn’t the dream that many young people have about it. And he says that by year 20, couples are stuck in the same routine of listening to their partner’s stories for the millionth time. He says that he could fix this problem in his marriage by getting a girlfriend who could help more than just him. He jokes about telling his wife, “Don’t think of her as my girlfriend.” “Think of her as one of your helpers.”
