Friday Funnies: Married!

(Dianne and P.R. on their wedding day.)

Hello My Happy People,

We are so busy here with family stuff today that I am wrote this on Tuesday because I have no idea when we will be home. P.R. and I have been doing all those things you are supposed to do as you get older to prepare to keep getting even older. I went first, because I am the one who is most likely to have trouble with these sorts of things, but now that I have finished all my appointments, it's P.R.'s turn.

It's nice to have someone to help you go through all of these kinds of things. For so many years, I was the only one planning for my future and it's nice to have someone to share that all with. However ... marriage is not all roses and chocolates no matter how much you love each other. That is because marriage takes two people and no matter what, if two people spend enough time together eventually they will get on each other's nerves about something.

Most times, it's small things that build up and just finally drive you crazy. The real trick is being able to remind yourself what things actually matter and what does not in the grand scheme of things. It also helps to have a partner who likes to play video games like Call of Duty or Fortnite. This way when you are driving each other nuts, you can just go in the game and kill off each other's characters and let off some steam. It is surprisingly cathartic!

It also helps to have a good sense of humor about it all and to help with that, here are some jokes about marriage.

Have a great weekend people!

A. All the time ... but they are usually, "Yes, dear."

A. The trouble starts when they try to decide which one to become.

Q.What is the difference between being just married and being married 30 years?

A. They're really hard to get started, often emit horrible odors, and your have to direct them everywhere you want them to go.

Q. Wife, "The new neighbor always kisses his wife as he leaves for work. Why don't you do that?"
