Once I asked Friend, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
Friend said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
I asked, "Can you explain?"
Friend 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 decisions."
Still not convinced, I asked Friend "Give me some examples"
Friend 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"
I asked, "Then what is your role?"
Friend said," My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe , whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire, whether IPL should be played in India or S.A/UK etc etc.
P.S.: Borrowed from a email forward by a friend.
