After being married for 44 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, "Darling, 44 years ago we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25-year-old girl. Now I have a $500,000.00 home, a $45,000.00 car, nice big bed and plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 65-year-old woman. It seems to me that you're not holding up your side of things."

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25-year-old gal, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve your mid-life crisis.

    I started laughing at the second paragraph, and didn't stop till the end. My husband is 71 and, though he's much more civilized that the portrayal above, and is a really good man... I do so relate! Thanks for the hearty laugh!

    That was awesome. emoticon Funny, I made that comment to my husband of 42 years, when we were joking about something.
After 42 years, I don't think he would want to start over. emoticon
