Marriage is never easy regardless of how long the couple is married. Especially in a longer marriage, the mutual sacrifice needed to preserve the bond can be challenging sometimes.
In the following story, you’ll hear about a man who confronted his wife as he was having second thoughts about their marriage. Her response was perfect:
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 reasonable woman. She told me to go out and ﬁnd a hot 23—year—old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10—inch black and white TV.
Aren’t older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems.
