Married Life…

During the wedding ceremony, when the minister/preacher/priest comes to the part about, “If anyone has any reason why these two people should not marry, speak up now or forever hold your peace…” have a 4-to-6 year old boy run up the aisle yelling, “Daddy, daddy.” I understand from a friend who played this joke on a relative that it took almost an hour to get the wedding started again.

This couple were married for 67 years. The husband was asked; if in all those years had they ever thought of divorce. “Heavens no” he replied. Murder yes, but never divorce.

Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

    A wedding is a simultaneous funeral for two people.

    I'm guilty of eavesdropping on conversations. People-watching is a crucial part of being a writer!

    • September 20, 2015 at 8:11 am

      I would think people watching is most helpful to an author. πŸ™‚
