Marriages That Make Sense

Monday Jun 05th, 2017


An elderly woman became a local celebrity in her small town by getting married at the age of 92. The newspaper sent a reporter to interview her. His first question was how she enjoyed being a newlywed in her 90s.

“Oh, this isn’t my first husband,” the woman replied. “I’m used to this by now.”

“Really? How many times have you been married?”

“This is my fourth husband. When I was 22 I married a banker. He died, and then when I was 43 I married a circus performer. He ran away with a dancer. Then when I was 62 I married a minister, and he lived a long time.”

“What does your new husband do?”

“He’s a funeral director,” she said proudly.

The reporter laughed. “That’s quite a variety of husbands.”

“Oh, it always made perfect sense to me,” the woman said. “I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.”
