old-coupleThere was a couple of 60 years of a highly bonded marriage. All through these years they shared a very loving relationship. From sharing laughter to smallest talks, nothing was ever hidden. Apart from that little box that was kept on top of the wife’s closet. She asked her husband to never raise a question regarding that box and be cautious to even touch it.
In their complete life, the husband never questioned it and moreover didn’t even give it a thought. Now in their old age when the couple was turning old, the wife was caught with a severe disease, the doctor said she would not recover. Now the wife knowing her health, thought to share the secret of the little box with her husband. She asks him to bring the box kept on the closet. She said its the time for you to know about this box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted doilies and a stack of money totaling $25,000.

She said explaining the contents of the box, “When we were to be married, my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet doily.”

Hearing all this husband was moved to tears, seeing only two doilies in the box. He was happy to realize that all through these years my wife got angry on me just twice. It was the happiest moment of his life.

He then asked his wife,” Sweetheart that clears doilies, but what about all the money? What’s their role?”

“Oh Yeah”, she said, “that’s the money i made from selling the rest of the doilies”.
