Marriage

• At a cocktail party, one man said to another, “Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger??” The man replied, “Yes I am…I married the wrong woman!!”

• A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds: “Husband Wanted!” The next day she received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: “You can have mine!”
