Here’s one solution for the secret to a happy marriage.
The day they were married, the wife cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about the shoe box she had placed on the top shelf of their closet.
For over sixty years or marriage, they shared everything and kept no secrets from one another. The husband never thought about the box until, one day, the little old woman became sick with cancer and the doctor said she was dying.
The wife told her husband it was time he should know what was in the box and asked him to get it from the closet and bring it to her bedside. When he opened the lid, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He was dumbfounded and asked her about the contents.
“When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”
The husband was so moved he fought back tears. Since there were two precious dolls were in the box, she’d only been angry with him twice in all those years of living and loving.
“Honey, that explains the doll,” he said, bursting with happiness, “but where did all this money come from?”
“Oh, that’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”
