One loving wife found out how much she was loved: I picked up the tax package sent by our CPA. For once, I’d surprise my husband Henry and get our tax information in early. As I scanned the lines, I noticed Henry had filled in some lines. To the question, "Did your marital status change ...?" he had circled "Yes."

As far as I knew, we weren’t considering separation or divorce. In fact, we’d soon celebrate our 50th anniversary--unless he had other plans. I moved my hand to uncover the next two words: "Older ... better." I liked that change in status

Is your marriage getter better as well as older? A man accompanied his friend home for dinner and was impressed by the way he entered his house, asked his wife how her day went, and told her she looked pretty. Then, when they’d embraced, she served dinner.

After they ate, the husband complimented his wife on the meal and thanked her for it. When the two fellows were alone, the visitor asked, "Why do you treat your wife so well?" "Because she deserves it, and it makes our marriage happier," replied the host.

Impressed, the visitor decided to adopt the idea. Arriving home, he embraced his wife and exclaimed, "You look wonderful" For good measure he added, "Sweetheart, I’m the luckiest guy in the world."

His wife, amazed, burst into tears. Bewildered, he asked her, "What in the world’s the matter?" She wept, "What a day Billy fought at school. The refrigerator quit and spoiled the groceries. And now you come home drunk"
