Once X asked Y, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
Y said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect
to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
X asked, "Can you explain?"
Y said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my
wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's
Still not convinced, X asked Y "Give me some examples"
Y said, "Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much
amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air
conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep
a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"
X asked, "Then what is your role?"
Y said, "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether
America should attack Iraq , whether Britain should lift sanction
over Zimbabwe , whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin
Tendulkar should retire etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER
objects to any of these".
