After 50 Years of Marriage…..

Divorcing after 50 years an elderly couple in Chicago calls his son in Texas and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; fifty years of misery is enough!”

“Dad, what are you talking about?” The son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in New Jersey and tell her!”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “What the heck, they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”

She calls Chicago immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.

“Okay”, he says, “They’re coming for family get-together and paying their own travel fare.” !!!

    Hi Sara, I didn’t get the joke in the story initially until I read it over and over again. It was cool and I couldn’t help laughing aloud.

    I guess the children weren’t visiting and that was the only way to force a visit without having to pay for their own fare.

    That was great!

    I’ve been moody all day, reading this joke and at the same time my cousin called to say his wife just gave birth to a baby girl. Cannot quantify the depth of my happiness!

    Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah.

    omg this soooo lame

    • Maryam March 12, 2012 at 2:57 AM #

      I dont think it is lame, I think it is deep and we should be ashamed after reading this because it has a lesson in it!!! It tells us that we dont visit our parents often:(

    nice get together but with a real shock!. it’s a good thing that the children have come to their senses. this what the Qur’aan says about parents: And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. surat al isra 23. And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is in two years give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto Me is the final destination. surat luqman 31:14.
