A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except for the shoe box at the top of the closet that the wife warned her husband never to open or ask her about.
One day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.
While sorting out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside. She agreed that it was time for him to know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $100,000.
He asked her about the contents.
“When we were to be married, my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”
The little old man was so moved, he had to fight back tears.
Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving! He almost burst with happiness.
“Honey,” he said. “That explains the dolls, but what about all of this money. Where did it come from?”
“Oh,” she said. “That’s the money I made from selling crocheted dolls !!!”
After 35 years of marriage,a husband and wife came for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable – an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched – with a raised eyebrow.
The woman shut up and quietly sat down in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, ”This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?”
“Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays I fish.
A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife's stomach with indelible ink.
The couple was curious about what the stamp was for, so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters, the stamp said, "When you can read this without a magnifying glass, come back and see me."
