The List

At a couple’s golden marriage anniversary celebration, the wife told guests the secret of her happy 50-year marriage. “On my wedding day, I decided to make a list of ten of my husband’s faults, which for the sake of our marriage I would overlook.”

As the guests were leaving, a young woman whose own marriage had recently been rocky asked the grandmotherly woman what some of her husband’s faults had been that she had seen fit to overlook.

“To tell you the truth, my dear, I never did get around to listing them,” she answered, “but whenever my husband did something that made me hopping mad, I would say to myself, ‘Lucky for him that’s one of the ten!’”
