A young couple got married and left on their honeymoon. When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother.

"Well, how was the honeymoon?" asked the mother.

"Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic..." Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language. He's been saying things I've never heard before! All these awful 4-letter words! You've got to come get me and take me home... please mama!"

"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! Tell me, what could be so awful? What 4-letter words has he been using?"

"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter, "I'm so embarrassed! They're just too awful! You've got to come get me and take me home........ please mama!"

"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset........Tell your mother these horrible 4-letter words!"

Still sobbing, the bride replied, "Oh, mama........words like dust, wash, iron, and cook..."

Once there was a billionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The billionaire also had a daughter who was still single.

One day he decided to throw a huge party, and during the party he announced, "My dear guests...I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars and my daughter's hand in marriage to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge unharmed!"

As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large SPLASH!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could. There was uproar, with the crowd cheering him on as he kept stroking. Finally, he made it to the other side unharmed.

The millionaire was greatly impressed. He said, "My boy, that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn't think it could be done! Well, I must keep my end of the bargain...I suppose that you'll want to take my daughter and the one million dollars now?"

The guy says, "Listen, I don't want your dam money! And I don't want to marry your daughter! But I do want the swine who pushed me into that water!"

A man came home from a rather bad day at work, looking forward to being able to unwind. After a relaxing dinner with his wife, they retired to their separate beds. However the man, not yet ready to slumber, called over to his wife, "My little boopey-boo, I'm feeling a bit lonely." So the woman got out of her bed and crossed the room to her husband.

Unfortunately, on the way she tripped on the carpet and fell flat on her face. The husband, with a very concerned look on his face, said "Oh, did my little honey-woney fall on her little nosey-wosey?" The woman gets up and enters the man's bed. The two make passionate love and afterwards the woman rolls out.

As she is returning to her own bed, she once again catches her foot on the carpet and falls flat on her face. The man looks over his shoulder at his wife lying on the floor and says "Clumsy bitch!"

  • All wives are alike, but they have different faces so that you can tell them apart.
  • I married Miss Right. I just didn't know that her first name was Always.
  • I haven't spoken to my wife for 18 months: I don't like to interrupt her.
  • Scientists have discovered a food to diminish a woman's sex drive by 90%. It's called Wedding Cake.
  • Marriage is a 3-ring circus: Engagement Ring, Wedding Ring, Suffering.
  • Our last argument was my fault: My wife asked me "What's on the TV?" I said, "Dust!"
  • In the beginning, God created the earth and rested.
    Then God created Man and rested.

    Since then, neither God nor Man has rested.

Working as a volunteer at my local branch of Relate, the marriage guidance and conciliation service, I was having great difficulty in trying to mediate between a young couple who had evidently not been married for very long.

The woman was constantly grumbling about her husband's apparent lack of commitment to their marriage. In attempting to make her point that commitment is a natural phenomenon in life, she cited the example of the penguin, saying that everybody knows that they mate for life.

At this, the husband retorted "That doesn't surprise me much because they all look the same. It's hardly likely that he's ever going to meet a better-looking penguin someday is it?"

The Pentagon once did a study on why so many American servicemen marry women in the countries where they are stationed. Contrary to popular belief, loneliness had nothing to do with it. Once the men rotated back to the U.S.A., all their in-laws were thousands of miles away.

A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?"

"Sixteen," the boy responded.

His cousin was amazed that he knew the answer so quickly. "How do you know that?" he enquired.

"Easy," replied the little boy, "All you have to do is add it up, like the Bishop said: four better, four worse, four richer, four poorer."
