The secret to a long, happy marriage

An old man was talking to a young friend. He told him he had been married for 66 years.

"That's amazing!" his young friend said. "What's the secret to such a long, happy marriage?"

"Well," the elder man replied, "It's like this. We decided together when we got married: The man makes all the big decisions ... and the woman makes all the little decisions."

"Wow!" the young man responded. "Does that really work?"

"Oh yes," the oldster said proudly. "It's been 66 years and, so far we haven't had one big decision!"

Puteri,

LOL! Heheh. I guess, it would be problematic when a big decision is to be make. But I guess, that is why we always 'bermesyuarat' eh?

Cheer(",).

Puteri said...

Bermesyuarat or mengalahkan diri? Hehe, since all the decisions were little decisions and that means all the decisions were made by the wife! I found the joke in a Farm Show magazine, and thought I just had to reproduce it here. :-)

Hi Puteri, ha ha, love your 'big decision' joke. Here's some smiles for you. Marraige parole. A wife woke up in the middle of the night to find her husband
missing from bed. She got out of bed and checked around the house, and heard sobbing from the basement.
After turning on the light and descending the stairs, she found her husband curled up into a little ball, sobbing.
"Honey, what's wrong?" she asked, worried about what could hurt him so much.
"Remember, 20 years ago, I got you pregnant? And your father threatened me to marry you or to go to jail?"
"Yes, of course," she replied.
"Well, I would have been released tonight."

Pizza and FBI:
FBI agents conducted a raid of a psychiatric hospital in San Diego that was under investigation for medical insurance fraud. After hours of reviewing thousands of medical records, the dozens of agents had worked up quite an appetite.

The agent in charge of the investigation called a nearby pizza parlor with delivery service to order a quick dinner for his colleagues. The following telephone conversation took place and was recorded by the FBI because they were taping all conversations at the hospital.

Agent: Hello. I'd like to order 19 large pizzas and 3 cases of soda.
Pizza Man: And where would you like them delivered?
Agent: We're over at the psychiatric hospital.
Pizza Man: The psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That's right. I'm an FBI agent.
Pizza Man: You're an FBI agent?
Agent: That's correct. Just about everybody here is.
Pizza Man: And you're at the psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That's correct. And make sure you don't go through the front doors. We have them locked. You'll have to go around to the back service entrance to deliver the pizzas.
Pizza Man: And you say you're all FBI agents there?
Agent: That's right. How soon can you have them here?
Pizza Man: Everyone at the psychiatric hospital is an FBI agent?
Agent: That's right. We've been here all day and we're starving.
Pizza Man: How are you going to pay for all of this?
Agent: We've collected a pool of cash.
Pizza Man: And you're all FBI agents?
Agent: Yes.
Pizza Man: With guns?
Agent: That's right. Now, can you remember to bring the pizzas and sodas to the service entrance in the rear? We have the front doors locked.
Pizza Man: No f#@!in' way!!

BUYING A BRA: A man walked into the ladies department of Macy's, and walked up to the woman behind the counter and said, "I'd like to buy a bra for my wife".
"What type of bra?" asked the clerk.
"Type?" inquires the man. "There is more than one type"?
"Look around," said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material. "Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only three types of bras," replied the salesclerk. Confused, the man asked what were the types?
The saleslady replied "The Catholic type, the, Salvation Army type, and the Baptist type. Which one do you need"? Still confused the man asked, "What is the difference between them"? The lady responded, "It is all really quite simple. The Catholic type supports the masses, the Salvation Army type lifts up the fallen, and the Baptist type makes mountains out of mole hills".
Have a nice day, Puteri. Lee. ps, waiting for that red profile pic...in high heels and holding a Ruger Redhawk .44 Mag, ha ha.

NaNa said...

Hi Puteri,

Hahahaha. That is always the case. Women always make the small decisions .. like what to cook for dinner, what present to buy for whose and whose birthday, what tie suits the husband's shirt, where is the next holiday vacation, etc, etc. But then.. that's basically it.... :)

BTW, even big decision like buying a house becomes a small decision in my case... hahahaha..

Nightwing said...

Zawi said...

Puteri,
That was a good arrangement. Just give the male ego a boost you will get everything your way. Thats the moral of the story.
Hey my good friend Lee was here already. I can see mark all over your place

Puteri said...

Nana, that is true! A clever woman will make sure everything is a little decision! Haha.

Puteri said...

Nightwing, since you are not married yet, better learn this truth quick! haha.

Yes, Lee has been stock of jokes to share with us! Heheh.

Puteri said...

Zawi,

Yes, a clever woman will know when to give the man in the house the ego boost he needs! Heheh.
