A couple had been married for 30 years and was celebrating the husband’s 60th birthday. During the party, a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all those years, she would give them one wish each.
The wife said, “We’ve been so poor all these years, and I’ve never gotten to see the world. I wish we could travel all over the world.” The fairy waved her wand and POOF! She had the tickets in her hand.
Next, it was the husband’s turn. He paused for a moment, and then said, “Well, I’d like to be married to a woman 30 years younger than me.”
The fairy waved her wand and POOF! He was 90.
If you send short responses to me at mnaomiberger(at)gmail(dot)com that relate to how to create and maintain a good marriage, especially based on your personal experience, I’ll publish the ones that fit with this theme, with your byline or anonymous; your choice!
Ideas go get you started: What do you like best about your spouse? Does she or he share responsibility regarding chores and raising children, give you surprise gifts, listen to you really well— or do something else that keeps you best friends and lovers forever?
Also welcome are short posts about what you admire(d) about your parents’ marriage or someone else’s you’ve observed.
