Today evening 40 years ago we got married. I have already said how was this journey in my post TERE BIN JEENA.... a few days ago. It has been sugar and spice in right mix. So here is something what people say to bring little smile :

A couple on their Golden Jubilee relived their honeymoon. When they returned, friend in the bar asked him how was it. He told that everything was same, they went to same hill station, stayed in the same hotel, they got the same room and stayed for the same number of days. He looked a little sad. On asking he said,” But there was one difference, last time it was she who cried but this time it was me.”

Wife got up in the middle of night to find husband missing. On looking she found him sitting in the living room crying. She was alarmed and on her asking the reason, he asked,” Do you know today we complete 25 years of marriage?”

She,” Oh, yes! Isn’t that lovely?”

He,” Remember your father who was in police had caught us doing naughty things and put a gun on my head saying that if I did not consent to marry you he would have me locked up in jail for 25 years?”

She,” Yes, how sweet of you to have chosen the former!”

He,” You know, had I not, today I would have been a free man.”

Young boy,” Daddy, do you spell marriage as m i r a g e?”

Father,” No son, but they are very akin.”

Friends were discussing how they fail to win an argument with wife and they were surprised when a meek looking man said that in any argument with his wife he has the last word. On their insistence he told, “ I always say I AM SORRY.?

Marriage – It is an institution where a man forfeits his bachelor’s degree while a woman gains master’s degree by default.

Congratulations, Jack! :-) Love those lines at the bottom of the post. Wish you both all the wonderful blessings that you two deserve. God bless you!

Btw, it was wonderful seeing you in my blog. Amazing as usual to see that you made a clean sweep down several posts and left your wise thoughts behind. Always a delight to see you visit. Know that you are missed cos I consider you a fine gentleman and friend. God bless you and your loved ones.
