A newlywed couple moves into their new home

A newlywed couple moves into their new home. The husband, trying to impress his wife, tells

her, “Honey, I’ll cook us a special dinner tonight!” He grabs the cookbook and starts flipping

through the pages, looking for the perfect recipe. Suddenly, he exclaims, “Ah-ha! Here it is! The recipe for a happy marriage!”


Intrigued, his wife leans over to see what it says. The husband starts reading, “First, you need a

dash of patience, a pinch of understanding, and a cup of compromise‚Ķ”


His wife interrupts, “That sounds wonderful, dear! But what’s the cooking time?”


The husband grins and replies, “Oh, it’s a lifelong recipe, my love!”
