Secret of 60 years of Marriage – Very Funny

A man and a woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about. 
For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort 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 that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents.

“When we were to be married,” she said, “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 stich 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 doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”“Oh, that?” she said. “That is the money I made from selling the dolls.” : )

    Being in a marriage for 60 solid years is not an easy task!

    To sustain a marriage, women need wisdom and sacrifice.

    Men equally need great wisdom, tolerance and endurance.

    May Allah swt make it easy for us.
    Thuma Amin.

    Thanks FFJ team.

    Happiness is the thing of the mind. Despite realising net sales proceed of $95,000 from dolls, the husband did not notice the wife’s anger for the sixty years is indeed a tall sacrifice. The secret of maintaining happy life is make ones environment happy and contented with situation as they come.

    This is not a jock, you have to read the wisdom inside this unbelievable story, the meaning behind this story, is to let things go smooth between the two couples, no matter who’s getting hurt or duped, it’s a great sacrifice from the wife to keep the marriage alive for 60 years, even though, there is a lots of exaggerations in it, it’s more a mystery than fact.

    How lucky is that man, he marries a wife who never argues with him and when she is ready to pop off, he gets rich and still has two dolls to sell, loooooooooooool.

    see, the key of happy marriage is for the man to be always right especially when he is wrong. the woman should live in shadow and never open her wide mouth against him.
    and yet you find those activist trying to liberate women. what I see is only liberation from clothes.

    Please notice the sarcasm tone
