AN ANOMYNOUS FATHER’S LETTER TO HIS SON ON HOW TO PRESERVE A MARRIAGE

 

Jackie Mason

Thanks for the card and the gift you sent to mom & me on our 50th anniversary. I am pondering about what advice I can give you to help you get through 50 or more years of a happy marriage like mine. To help you I thought about a monologue by the famous Jewish comedian, Jackie Mason. It goes like this:

I was at a show with my wife Becky, and at the finale I turned towards her and said, “Boy! I really enjoyed that very much.” Becky put on a sour face and said, “How could you like that boring show. It insulted my intelligence.”

So I did quick 180 degrees, and I showed her my backstroke, “I thought I liked it! Who liked it? I really didn’t care for it; I wouldn’t recommend it to a dog. Next time, better we should stay home and watch TV.” [end monologue]

In a word son, compromise her way. Of course, the reality is that you won’t do that and there will be many heated battles, but when the smoke has cleared, take it from me, you will do a Jackie Mason.

Well my boy! Now that you’re divorced and a happy free man…it seems Jackie and I were both wrong.
