Contented Married Life
A man was telling one of his friends the secret of his contented married
life, "My wife makes all the small decisions," he explained, "and I make all the
big ones, so we never interfere in each other's business and never get annoyed
with each other. We have no complaints and no arguments."
"That sounds reasonable," answered his friend sympathetically. "And what
sort of decisions does your wife make?"
"Well," answered the man, "she decides what jobs I apply for, what sort of
house we live in, what furniture we have, where we go for our holidays, and
things like that."
His friend was surprised. "Oh?" he said. "And what do you consider
important decisions then?"
"Well," answered the man, "I decide who should be Prime Minister, whether
we should increase our help to poor countries, what we should do about the atom
bomb, and things like that."
