50 years is a long time to be married.
As well as the congratulations the marriage jokes come to the surface again “If I’d murdered her instead of marrying her I’d be free by now” … “when you marry you put a down payment with the ring and then pay for the rest of your live” and then of course there’s the “mother-in-law” jokes, hundreds of them. But that still doesn’t take anything away from the fact that 50 years of marriage is quite an achievement.
I remember a tv interview where the husband celebrating his Golden Wedding was asked to share his secret for a long and happy marriage, his advice was just to use two little words, and to use them often … “yes dear”
