    Love Cures All

    | IA, USA | Golden Years, Marriage & Partners

    (My mother is the in-house lawyer for one of the hospitals in our city and always makes sure to say hi to people in the hallways. This occurs with a woman that she has seen several times pushing another woman in a reclining wheel chair who is clearly completely disabled to the point that she is unaware of her surroundings.)

    Mom: “Hi, there!”

    Woman #1: “Hi, didn’t I see you at the Bar Association outing this summer?”

    Mom: “Yes, I bet you did.”

    Woman #1: “Yeah, I thought so. I haven’t kept up my license but I always like to go and see everyone.”

    (They talk for a few minutes about the types of law they’ve practiced and where.)

    Mom: “I see you here frequently. Do you volunteer with hospice?”

    Woman #1: “No, this is my wife.”

    (It turned out that Woman #2 had advanced stage Alzheimer’s and her wife, Woman #1, took her for a walk everyday even though Woman #2 didn’t have any clue who she was. Love isn’t always romantic but it is always beautiful.)

    Labor Of Love

    | UT, USA | Marriage & Partners, Top

    (My wife is pregnant with our first child but her second. She had given her first child up for adoption after her ex left her on very poor terms.)

    Wife: “Honey, will you be in the delivery room when our baby is born?”

    Me: “Why do you ask?”

    Wife: “Well, [Ex] couldn’t handle the sight of blood so he couldn’t be in the delivery room when our baby was born.”

    Me: “Nothing will stop me from being in that room with you. If I have to drive a tank through the hospital wall I will be in that room with you.”

    (The day she went into labor I drove her to the hospital and stopped by a toy store to pick up a little toy tank. I brought it into the room with us when our daughter was born.)

    That Took A Lot Out Of Her

    | Burnsville, MN, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (It’s the night after our daughter is born. Needless to say, my wife is tired. She’s breastfeeding our daughter, but both she and the baby are falling asleep.)

    Me: “Why don’t I put her in the bassinet?”

    Wife: “Okay. Who’s next?”

    Me: “What?”

    Wife: “Who do I have to feed next?”

    Me: “You’re asking who besides your daughter you have to breastfeed?”

    Wife: “Yes!”

    Me: “Get some rest, Sweetie.”

    Disavowing

    | DE, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (My husband of less than one month has been taken to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. I’m holding his hand as he lies on a gurney, waiting to be taken upstairs.)

    Husband: “I’m so sorry I’m putting you through all this.”

    Me: “Well, we did just say ‘in sickness and in health,’ right?”

    Husband: “Yeah, I guess we did. By the way, when am I going to be getting some ‘obey’?”

    Me: “As soon as I get some ‘richer’!”

    Raiding Into Uncharted Territory

    | Boston, MA, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (My wife has just had her first ultrasound for our first child, and we are talking about when we will find out the baby’s sex.)

    Wife: “I figured it could be a cute Christmas gift to us. We can open the envelope on Christmas Eve.”

    Me: “Nah, I want to know!”

    Wife: “Well, are you still hoping for a boy?”

    Me: “Meh. I just want to know so I know if I should invest in Tomb Raider games or the Uncharted series. We have to teach our little one to be a bad-a** adventurer the right way.”

    Wife: “I love you!”
