13 Quotes about marriage

* In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
* In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

2. It is true that love is blind but marriage is definitely an eye-opener.

9. They say when a man holds a woman's hand before marriage, it is love; after marriage, it is self-defense.

10. When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy, we wonder why.

These were funny, but thankfully not true for my marriage. We're going on 24 years this October and we still like each other!

Hahaha. Too funny, Gattina! I've been single most of my life, so have not much real knowledge of marriage, tho what I do have fits this fairly well. LOL.

I can't complain either, although my hubby was a bit grumpy this morning, ... oh well, never mind, he'll get over it I think, he'll probably miss me during the weekend, so ...!

*snork* I had to come by and see what a blog called Writer Cramps was about (since I'm a writer myself and often suffer from them). Funny post and unfortunately, a few hit too close to home. *G*

In regard to #1 ... after 20 years, NOBODY speaks! (and nobody listens!)

These all have a good bit of truth to them, don't they?!

Sanni said...
