Observations From Married Life

Someone has compiled the following list of observations about married life:

 * A successful man is one who makes more money

than his wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

 * Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

 * A man is a person who will pay two dollars for a one-dollar item he  wants.

A woman will pay one dollar for a two-dollar item that she doesn’t want.

 * To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little.

To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot

and not try to understand her at all.

 * When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping.

Men invade another country.

 * A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change and she does.

 * A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

 * There are two times when a man doesn’t understand a woman –

before marriage and after marriage.

* Only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy.

One is to let her think she is having her own way. The other is to let her have it.

 * Any married man should forget his mistakes –

there’s no use in two people remembering the same thing.

 * A man has six items in his bathroom – a toothbrush, shaving cream,

       razor, a bar of soap, deodorant and a towel.

The average number of items in the typical woman’s bathroom is 437.

A man would not be able to identify most of these items.

 * A woman always has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
