A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately.

The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, “This is what your wife needs at least three times a week Can you do this?”

The husband thought for a moment and replied,.. “Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Friday’s, I fish!

  • Hello. Cupid called. He says to tell you that he needs my heart back.
  • Do you have a pencil? Cause I want to erase your past and write our future.
  • How was Heaven when you left it?
  • Excuse me… Hi, I’m writing an essay on the finer things in life, and I was wondering if I could interview you.
  • If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I would be walking through my garden forever.
  • You must be a girl scout because you tie my heart in knots.
  • You know, you might be asked to leave soon. You’re making the other women look really bad.
  • Let me tie your shoes, because I don’t want you falling for anyone else.

Shortly before our 25th wedding anniversary, my husband sent 25 long-stemmed yellow roses to me at my office. A few days later, I plucked all the petals and dried them. On the night of our anniversary, I spread the petals over the bed and lay on top of them, wearing only a negligee.

As I’d hoped, I got a reaction from my husband.

When he saw me, he shouted, “Are those potato chips?”

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?”

“Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life,” her mother replied.

The child thought about this for a moment then asked, “So why is the groom wearing black?”

The ten commandments of relationship and all the anecdotes shared here are so funny especially the therapist story. How the husband is so dumb as that. 😀

These made me smile so much today, which is just what I needed. 🙂 I also love the Peanuts picture included.


This was too funny!!!Loved the therapist one. The quotes were great The Rodney Dangerfield and Lana Turner were too funny. I have started my day laughing. Thank you

I can't wait until my grandson starts asking me gorgeous innocent questions like the black and white meanings 🙂 hehe


LOL, I have to save this …. too funny 🙂


Forgot to check notify me of follow-up comments.


3 & 6 are my favorite of the favorite of the 10 romantic commandments & I consider them equally important.

I read the bride/groom joke to my husband & he laughed…I told him….that’s why you were wearing platinum.

Loved Rita Rudner’s quote… my husband said I’m very good at that & I told him that’s why I’m here.

We also had a good laugh over the last 2 and thought the text fit us perfectly.

Truly, if we can’t laugh at ourselves and romance, which I’m a way is absurd, then we are doomed in our relationships.


I agree that it is rather sad that so many were in bad taste. I really enjoyed the ones you chose. thank you for being so selective.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
