Friday Funnies: Marriage

Tomorrow evening, we'll be having dinner with Steve's family to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of my in-laws:

Of course, I know the situation tomorrow will be quite different from this joke:

Jealous in a Restaurant

There is an old story about an older couple having dinner in a restaurant. The wife sees another couple about their age sitting in a booth nearby.

She sees the husband sitting close to his wife, with his arm around her. He is whispering things in her ear, and she is smiling and blushing. He’s gently rubbing her shoulder and touching her hair.

The woman turns to her husband and says, "Look at the couple over there. Look how close that man is to his wife, how he’s talking to her. Look at how sweet he is. Why don’t you ever do that?"

Her husband looks up from his Caesar salad and glances over at the next booth. Then he turns to his wife and says, "Honey, I don’t even know that woman."

My grandparents were married for 47 years, before my grandpa passed away in 1980. As a kid, I remember seeing a plaque with this exact saying that was on the wall of their garage:

In light of that, I'm sure my grandma would also have appreciated this little poem:

Secret of a Happy Marriage

To keep your marriage brimming,
with love in the wedding cup,
whenever you're wrong, admit it;
whenever you're right, shut up.
~Ogden Nash

Kids Say the Darndest Things!

How do you decide whom to marry?
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
~Alan, age 10

How can a stranger tell if two people are married?
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
~Derrick, age 8

What do most people do on a date?
Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
~Lynnette, age 8

Is it better to be single or married?
It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
~Anita, age 9
