Daily Joke: Man Asks His Wife of 40 Years What She Wants for Their Anniversary

 John and Mary had been married forty years, and for their 40th wedding anniversary, the husband asked his wife what she wanted as a special anniversary present. 

The delighted husband threw the question to his wife while making several attempts to guess her preference. He asked his wife,

"Would you like a new mink coat?"

Mary's replied: "Not really." The husband was dauntless and continued pressing on eager to gift his wife the best thing possible. He then asked a second time, fully expecting an affirmative reply.

"Well," he started. "How about a New Mercedes sports car?"

Again, the unimpressed woman failed to reply in the affirmative. The man was a little taken aback, as he wondered what could be a better present than his wife's favorite car brand. 

So again, he came up with a new idea, now fully convinced he had gotten the one thing she could not resist. Excitedly, he popped his third guess saying:

"What about a new vacation home in the country?"

Weary of the continuous guess works, the wife looked her husband squarely on the face and replied nonchalantly: "No Thanks."

The tone of her voice set him off and feeling a bit defeated, the confused husband then sought her opinion one last time. He asked, and eagerly awaited her reply:

"Well, what would you like for our anniversary?"

The wife assumed a serious countenance, and with a note of weariness, she turned to her husband and gave a shocking reply that caught him off guard.

"John, I'd like a divorce."

Without much thought, the disconcerted husband got closer to his wife and then retorted with his dose of icy words,

"Sorry. I wasn't planning to spend that much."

During a party to celebrate their golden jubilee, Tom's friends were eager to learn a thing or two about marriage from the anniversary celebrants. They asked:

"Tell us, Tom, what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?" 

Tom stood up willfully and gave his response with a note of seriousness.

"Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, meekness, forbearance, self-restraint, forgiveness, and a great many other qualities you wouldn't have needed if you'd stayed single."
