Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence (a life sentence!). Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Masters. Marriage is a thing which puts a ring on a woman's finger and two under the man's eyes. Marriage requires a man to prepare 4 types of "RINGS" : - The Engagement Ring - The Wedding Ring - The Suffe-Ring - The Endu-Ring Married life is full of excitement and frustration : - 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 NEIGHBOURS listen. Getting married is very much like going to the restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that. It's true that all men are born free and equal - but some of them get MARRIED! There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. Son: Is it true? Dad, I heard that in ancient China, a man doesn't know his wife until he marries. Father: That happens everywhere, son, EVERYWHERE! There was a man who said, "I never knew what happiness was until I got married.... and then it was too late!" Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock. When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy, we wonder why. There was this lover who said that he would go through hell for her. They got married, and now he is going through HELL. They say that when a man holds a woman's hand before marriage, it is love; after marriage it is self-defense.
