Wife’s Touched When She Finds Out Her Husband Remembered Their Anniversary

Marriage is something that’s definitely not for everyone, but for those willing to grow, learn, and love unconditionally, it can be the most rewarding decision they could have ever made. However, not all married folks see it that way. Some people think about the days when they were “single and free.” And there are some folks who act on their discontent by cheating or seeking a divorce. Then there are those who seem to love to just joke about how horrible marriage is to their single friends. The wife in this fictional joke found her husband sitting alone one night at their kitchen table. At first, she was touched to learn he had remembered their anniversary until he explained why.

A woman awakes in the middle of the night to find her husband not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him.

She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of hot cocoa in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes away a tear from his eye.

“What’s the matter, dear?” she whispers as she steps into the room… “Why are you down here at this time of night!?”

The husband looks up from his drink, “It’s the 20th Anniversary of the day we met.”

She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.

The husband continues, “Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only 15,” he said solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive.

“Yes, I do” she replies.

The husband pauses… The words were not coming easily.

“Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?”

“Yes, I remember” said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continued.

“Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, Either you marry my daughter or I will make sure you spend the next 20 years in prison?”

“I remember that, too” she replied softly…

He sighed as he wiped another tear away from his cheek and said, “I would have gotten out today.”
