Meditations on Matrimony

Two old bachelors were discussing their lives, and how they'd stayed single so long.
One sighed and said to the other, "once, long ago, I met a woman and fell in love at first sight."
The other asked, "Why didn't you marry her?"
"I took a second look!"

The honeymoon was over, and she had discovered that two cannot live as cheaply as one. Disappointed, she became a terrible nag. Nothing was ever good enough. Finally, one night in the midst of a major argument, she cried, "Before we were married, you told me you were well off!"
"I was," he replied bitterly. "I just didn't know it!"

I haven't spoken to my wife in years.

I don't want to interrupt her!

Two for the ladies

Women's faults are many
Men have only two
Everything they say
And everything they do!

A husband is proof that a woman can take a joke!

From the Devil's Dictionary:
LOVE, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.
MARRIAGE, n. The state or condition of a community consisting of a master, a mistress and two slaves, making in all, two.

Love is blind, but marriage is an eye opener

Love is a sweet dream. Marriage is the alarm clock!

He promised to go through hell itself for her. She married him and now he's doing just that.

A bachelor thinks he's happy, until he gets married.
Then he knows he was.

Marriage means commitment. Then again, so does insanity.

And finally:

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. -- Guitry

No, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?

Several years ago (once upon a time), a friend got engaged to a rather well to do, less then spectacular women. My father's observation was, "anyone who marries for money almost always has to earn it."
My last wife, and I do mean last, took everything and I let everything go just to get out alive. A friend at the local bar asked, "why'd she take that old Ford pickup?"
"So she could haul off all the rest of my shit...". Aint it always so?
