Marriage is a tough cookie. No matter how long a couple is married, it takes a significant amount of labor and sacrifice on both sides in order to preserve a marriage. That being said, marriages come in various shapes and sizes.
In the following story, you’ll hear about a man that was having second thoughts about his marriage. When he confronts his wife about it, though, she has the perfect response…
After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, “Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10—inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23—year—old girl every night.
Now, I have a $500,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 69—year—old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”
My wife is a very tolerant woman. She told me to go out and ﬁnd a hot 23—year—old girl and she would be sure that I would once again live in a cheap house, drive a junk car, sleep on a sofa bed and watch a 10—inch black and white TV. Aren’t older women great? They truly know how to solve an old guy’s problems.
