A man on his golden wedding anniversary was asked the secret to his successful marriage.  The old man answered with a story.

Sarah, his wife, was the only girl he ever dated.  He grew up in an orphanage and had worked hard for everything he had.  He never had time to date until Sarah swept him off my feet.  Before he knew it, she had already managed to get him to ask for her hand in marriage.

Golden Anniversary

Golden Anniversary!

After they had said our vows on the wedding day, Sarah’s father took him aside and handed him a small gift.  He said, Within this gift is all you really need to know to have a happy marriage.

The nervous young man opened the box to find a large golden watch.  With great care, he picked it up.  Upon close examination, he saw etched across the face of the watch was a prudent reminder he would see whenever he checked for the time – words, if heeded, held the secret to a successful marriage.

They read … Say something nice to Sarah.
