From communication errors to everyday chores, it can be a lot for a person to get their head around.

But thankfully, long-term married couples have our back.

A lot of them have resorted to giving us some advice on how this whole thing works and it might actually be a lot simpler than we think...

Of course, there are the usual things...

Like being loyal, being honest, oh, and spending time with each other, that's a big one.

It's a good way of killing two birds with one stone.

But there's one other thing that can really make marriage worthwhile.

A lot of couples place emphasis on having children.

I mean, a lot of people want to be parents and raise their children in a healthy and happy home.

But for one couple, the task was extremely difficult.

No, not because they had fertility issues, but more so because they didn't know how to have children in the first place.

That's right, they didn't know you had to have sex.

In a tell-all book titled Handle With Care: True Confessions of an NHS Health Visitor, Racheal Hearson discusses personal anecdotes in which she reveals some of her strangest encounters as a healthcare professional, including her encounter with the couple in question here.

And it gets pretty wild, I'll tell you that for sure.

As per the description, it says: "Over 40 years working in the NHS, Rachael Hearson has been chased down an isolated stairwell by crack-fuelled drug-addicted pimps, threatened by a knife-wielding wife-beater in a hostel, unwittingly visited a brothel... "And that's just the tip of the iceberg."

People usually have stereotypes around this sort of job.

"Health Visiting is one of those professions that most people think is a bit of a non-job. 'You just sit on sofas and drink tea, don't you? It's not like you're a real nurse, in hospital.'"

It sounds like a tough job...

Minus the threats and the sex offenders, Hearson's book also revealed that you come to find yourself in some other awkward situations.

And this one has to be one of the weirdest.

Speaking to the Mirror, Hearson told us how she was forced to explain the process of the "birds and the bees" to a couple who had been married for years and were wondering why they hadn't had any children yet.

Now, there are many tales (that are often reserved for kids) when it comes to explaining how babies are made.

Like arriving with a stalk, for example.

Or even being bought in a shop...

That one is an absolute classic.

But for a pair of married, fully grown adults to be unaware of how baby's are made.

Well, there are truly no words.

Even though the incident was before the internet fully existed, it's still common sense.

"They had been married for some years but children 'hadn't come along'. The GP deduced they didn't know how to make babies, and it was my job to ensure they did!"

She continued:

via: Facebook

"They genuinely thought babies arrived as a result of simply 'being married' and had no clue. Teaching someone about sex is quite a responsibility."

But the situation ended up working out pretty well in the end...

She revealed that "within a couple of visits, the pair couldn't keep their hands off each other." I bet they had no problem having children.
