A Good Marriage Is Like Old Cheese

Once you've been married longer than most whales live, you start to take on a unique perspective of your spouse. You no longer overlook, or ignore the obvious. As an example, you start to make little snarky remarks about her weight like, "Let's take a vacation to Japan to see the cherry blossoms and visit their female sumo schools", or, "I'm getting reinforced suspensions for your car this Christmas". These comments are best said late in the day as to avoid a complete day of robust tirades. Comments about her cooking should be more delicate, as eating out may well ensue, but worth it for some. Tell her you want to watch your weight and cut back on such things as dinner or anything from the stove or oven. Tell her you want to always look good for her, especially when she wins the Asian National Sumo Championships.
     Okay, I'm just having fun with this blog and none of this would ever, ever, apply to my mama-san wifey. She would actually get a kick out of reading this if it wert for the fact I delete them the same day I post. Back to a long marriage; True, a good lasting marriage is indeed like good aged cheese, with the right amount of mold and a little on the stinky side. In time you start to see the real person behind all the wrinkles, various hair dyes and the raspberry lipstick. It's a gentler and more loving person. Someone who has always shared your dreams, hopes and pains, and will always continue to do so until your life insurance hits the mailbox. That's devotion.
     Here is where I tell you of how much I love her, and about all she has been through for me. So much I wish I could have done and given her. At least we share the blessings of our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. As long as I still can see the beauty in her and continue to fall in love with her each day, I'll never grow old. All of this is simply expressed each and every night in three gentle words. As we cozy up to each other in the comfort and solitude of our warm bed, these words automatically are said and meant. These same emotional words that have been expressed throughout our decades together...."Did you fart?!"

    Why Mom fell in Love with Dad?
    I asked my Grand Pa a few years back…“What made mom and dad fall in love with each other?”
    And He Said….“When We went to meet your mother for the first time, She took a long time to get ready and come downstairs. As soon as i came back inside the hall after attending your granny’s call on  ’how about the girl.Is she good looking or not.Does She know how To make tea or not?..blah blahhh’,,,i found your dad missing too. When we all went upstairs we found your mom polishing his shoes and your dad fixing the window of her room. So i called your granny and told her that something is wierd and she said  ”weird  you,that something is Love.“ 
    And That was enough for them to live together happily forever. :-)
    They explored life with each other.They walked together to learn and grow more everyday. And thats what marriage is all about.”

    I never farted in front of my ex husband and he never farted in front of me…crazy right? and hard to believe…but it’s true. I’m pretty sure that was the reason we got divorced. I’m gonna fart in front of my next husband.
