(I’m a nurse, and I am on taking a sweet old woman’s blood pressure while her husband, who has been there all night, sits beside her in a chair. I notice the woman’s beautiful engagement ring.)

Me: “Your ring is stunning! You have excellent taste, sir.”

Old man: “Thank you, I had it engraved for our fiftieth wedding anniversary. That was over ten years ago.”

Me: “Wow. Congratulations, that’s a long time. I just got married last month. How did you make your marriage work for so long?”

Old man: “Well, I always had the last words. And they were always ‘Yes, dear’.”
