I recently read a piece entitled, "Wisdom on the Sexes."
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
A man will pay two dollars for a one dollar item he wants. A woman will pay one dollar for a two dollar item that she doesn't want.
To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
A woman marries a man expecting that he will change, but doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband, while a man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
There are 2 times a man doesn't understand a woman--before and after marriage.
Only 2 things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. One is to let her think she is having her way, and the other is to let her have it.
Married men live longer than single men. But married men are a lot more willing to die.
Any married man should forget his mistakes--no use in 2 people remembering the same thing.
A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
I think of something I read the other day that asked, "Do you know what would have happened if it had been THREE WISE WOMEN instead of THREE WISE MEN who visited the Baby Jesus?"
'They would have asked directions earlier!'
'They would have arrived on time.'
'They would have helped deliver the baby.'
