Marital Pearls of Wisdom

Before June, the month of many weddings, fades into history, I thought I'd post some things a long-time reader reminded me I sent out in 2003, before I started blogging.
Gramps and Granny were discussin' their 50th wedding anniversary. She asked, "Shall I kill a chicken tonight?"
"Naw," said Gramps. "Why blame the poor bird for something that happened 50 years ago?"


Pearls of wisdom from Grandpa on having a long, happy marriage...
Whether a man winds up with the nest egg or a goose egg depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.

Many girls like to marry a military man - he can cook, sew, make beds and is in good health, and most importantly he's already used to taking orders.

Too many couples marry for better or for worse, but not for good.
When a man marries a woman, they become one. The trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
Trouble in marriage also often starts when a man gets so busy earnin' his salt that he forgets his sugar.
If a man has enough "horse sense" to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never be an old nag.
On anniversaries a wise husband always forgets the past, but never the present.
A foolish husband remarks to his wife, "Honey, you stick to the washin', ironin', cookin' and scrubbin'. No wife of mine is gonna work."

Is he a wise man or a wise guy?

I won't be posting next Wednesday since it's the 4th. Be back at you two weeks from today!

    A friend of mine once said (on his wedding day some 30 years ago) that “when a man is single, he’s incomplete, but when a man gets married, he’s finished.”

    Yes, he is still married.

    Here’s a couple of more pearls of wisdom that I have enjoyed:

    Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is ususally the husband.

    Any married man should forget his mistakes. There’s no use in two people remembering the same thing.

    Marriage is wonderful – It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
