Story: The Secret to a Peaceful Marriage!!


A world traveler once visited a small village in rural Mexico. At the local coffee shop, Someone asked  him if he was married. 'Divorced, actually. Never could find a woman I didn't end up fighting  with all the time.''Then you should go talk to the old couple that lives on the hill outside the village, rumor has it that they have been married over 60 years and they never fought this whole time.

' 'What ?? That's impossible!' Exclaimed the traveler. But the local swore to
him it was the truth and nothing but.The traveler just had to check it out, and in the morning he knocked on the door of the little house on the hill and was immediately welcomed by the husband, who invited him for tea. After the traveler explained why he came to see him, the man smiled and nodded.

'It's true, we never fight.'

'PLEASE,' Begged the traveler, 'can you tell me your secret??'

'Well,' said the old man, 'It all started about 60 years ago, right after the wedding. We were riding our mule back to town and walking it down the
street when it tripped over a stone and my wife said to him

“That's one.”.
We kept riding and he tripped again on another stone, which made my wife immediately say:

"That's two."

Two minutes later, the mule trips over a stone again. My wife said:

“That's three.”

and then she pulled out a gun I never knew she had and shot it in the head without thinking twice! I was shocked and yelled at her:

"What the heck do you think you're doing?? We needed that mule, are you crazy???"

My wife looked straight in my eyes and said:

"That's one."

And we haven't had a fight since.'
