Marriage calls for a lot of patience, tolerance, ability to come up with perfect response when necessary and above all love that can’t be tampered with.
This is because it has its own ups and downs and sometimes the downs seem to outweigh the ups. So, to ensure that you don’t engage in constant fight with your partner, you need to acquire some virtues that would help it work.
Of course fight is one thing that can’t be ruled out entirely in marriage. Couples argue nearly all the time and it is not really determined by how long the marriage has lasted.
Even those couples who have spent most of their lives together would occasionally fight.
Fortunately, in a well balanced couple, one person always has the perfect reply to the other half’s complaints!
And that is why the case of this woman who gave her husband a brilliantly polite answer comes in. The intelligence hidden behind the woman’s answer prompted her husband to share it on social media.
Her husband’s update reads:
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 73—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.
Older women surely know how to solve problems. They have the right answers for seemingly odd comments and questions.
