Marriage is funny

At his 25th wedding anniversary party, a man took a look at his wife and jokingly said, "Honey, 25 years ago we had a cheap rented house and a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed, and watched a 19-inch black-and-white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25-year-old blonde. Now we have an $800,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice bed, and a plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 50-year-old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things."
His wife, being a very reasonable woman with a sense of humor that could hold its own, told him to go out and find a hot 25-year-old blonde and she would make sure that he would once again be living in a cheap rented house, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed, and watching a 19-inch black-and-white TV...if he was lucky.
I like couples who can laugh.
One of my dearest friends has a license plate that reads:
'My next husband will be normal'.
Her husband bought it for her.
They've been married nearly 25 years.
I can't wait for that party.
