Matrimonial Cell

An Englishman celebrating his twenty-fifth wedding anniversary gave a big part for all his friends. But the host was nowhere to be seen. Finally a friend found him in the library, drinking a brandy and staring on the fire.

‘’peter’’ the friend said, ‘you should be celebrating with your guests. Why are you so sad?’’

‘’Charles’’, the husband explained, ‘when I had been married for five years I decided to kill my wife. I went to my lawyer and told him what I was going to do. He said that if I did it I would get twenty years to do in prison.

‘’just think, Charles, tonight I would have been a free man.’’

oh dear god!

somehow I dont find these jokes to be funny anymore. I just sympathize with both parties.

H M,

Are you married? There are three rings involved in matrimony - Engagement Ring, Wedding Ring and SufferRing.

Take care

I've been married almost 21 years. I guess if you marry the wrong person it can be like this story. But both my husband and I agree that we are best friends, I know it sounds so sappy. But we really do it for each other. I hope your up coming marriage is just as happy.

I find that hysterical. I have escaped the pain, though.

@ SAndy carlson
almost every joke has a bitter aspect that we generally hide behind the color of wit...

remembering the famous hindi cliche,

"shaadi woh ladu hai, jo khaaye woh pachtaaye... jo na khaaye woh bhi pachtaaye"

I wonder if that truly is the case , because people who love each other never would rob off their spouse's 5 months pocket money ;)

Though temporary go-around relations have been materialised these days !

A price to pay ;)
