A man and woman were recently celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary.
While cutting the cake, the wife was moved after seeing her husband’s eyes fill with tears.
The wife took his arm, and looked at him affectionately.
“I never knew you were so sentimental.” she whispered.
“No . . . No . . .” he said, choking back his tears, “That’s not it at all. Remember when your father found us in the barn and told me to either marry you or spend the next 30 years in jail?”
“Yes,” the wife replied. “I remember it like yesterday.”
“Well,” said the husband,
“Today I would have be a free man.”
