How to Stay Married

crochet dollA man and a woman had been married for nearly 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets, except the little old lady told the little old man she had a shoebox on her closet shelf that he was never to open or ask about.

Years later, the little old lady became very ill, and the doctor said she would not recover. She finally told the little old man that in getting her affairs in order, it was time for him to open the shoebox. When he did, he found two crocheted dolls and $95,000 in cash.

He asked her what it meant, and she said, “When we were getting married, my grandmother told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should keep quiet and just crochet a doll.” The little old man was overwhelmed with love.

“In all these years,” he asked, “you’ve only been mad at me twice? That’s so wonderful. But what about the money? Where did it come from?”

The little old lady replied, “Oh, that’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”
