The Ten Commandments Of Marriage

Image hosted by
Laughter is the best medecine

I received this email from my soul mate and had a good laugh. Maybe she is telling me to listen more or I am not hearing what she says.

After reading this, sounds pretty scary to get married eh? Hehehehe.

Marriages are made in heaven.
But so are thunder and lightning.

If you want your wife to listen and pay strict attention to every word
you say, talk in your sleep.

Marriage is grand -- and divorce is at least 100 grand!

Married life is very frustrating.
In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of
one thing: Either the car is new or the wife is.

Marriage is when a man and woman become as one;
The trouble starts when they try to decide which one.

Before marriage, a man will lie awake all night thinking about something
you say. After marriage, he will fall asleep before you finish.

Every man wants a wife who is beautiful, understanding, economical, and
a good cook. But the law allows only one wife.

Marriage and love are purely matters of chemistry.
That is why wife treats husband like toxic waste.

A man is incomplete until he is married.
After that, he is finished.

A long married couple came upon a wishing well.
The husband leaned over, made a wish and threw in a penny.
The wife decided to make a wish too.
But she leaned over too much, fell into the well, and drowned.
The husband was stunned for a moment but then smiled and said,
"Hey!...This thing really works!"

On a similar note:
I am glad I married a helluva woman who always supports me in whatever I endeavour. I salute her for being with me in good and bad times. Mmmmmm.....I should thank my lucky star.

Marriage life is actually great, but it's like schooldays, you gotta finish your "homework" first. Living together in harmony has to be cultivated. Lots of folks give up nowadays because they take things "instant" or "disposable" or they forgot to remove their rose-tinted glasses. Nothing comes without investment, but then again, nowadays you can borrow to invest. I think that's what's happening to people. They don't value it when it's not their hard-earned cash, so like their relationships, they can throw it out at will.

Congratulations. You should go out and celebrate your marriage milestone.

Actually I did not really believe that silly 10 commandments, so i am not blurry.
If your mate is in the same wave length then everything will be smooth going in a marriage.
