Marriage has been the punchline for jokes since…well, probably forever. When you look at it objectively, the concept of only staying with one person throughout your whole life can seem a bit intense, if not intimidating. We take vows that pledge to be there for this person through the most common things. “In sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer,” and that level of commitment to someone can be a bit daunting.
When this husband came to a sudden realization, he just had to tell his wife the truth…and it made for one terrible joke!
A woman’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day.
One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, “You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?”
“What dear?” she asked gently, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.
”I think you’re bad luck.”
Ha! I can see how he would think that way…but who’s to say that HE isn’t the bad luck?! After all of that, SHE is the one suffering in the hospital! This is just too funny and I did not expect it to take such an awful turn! This poor wife!
