Man Asks Wife About Her Deathbed

One unspoken truth about any marriage is, there will always be secrets that the other partner doesn’t know about. Some would argue that any amount of secrets, no matter how small, is not suitable for the marriage. However, others say that keeping a few harmless secrets can maintain a bit of mystery, which keeps things interesting. The wife in this joke had a secret that she managed to keep from her husband for over 60 years, never permitting him to see what was inside of a special shoe box. But, one day, while she lay dying on her deathbed, she decided it was time for him to know her biggest secret. Her revelation was both hilarious and heartwarming!

A man and a woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.

She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He 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 that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

Honey,” he said “that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”

“Oh, that?” she said. “That’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”
