First Guy (proudly): "My wife's an angel!" Second Guy: "You're lucky, mine's still alive." -Anonymous.

And the editor of the adds this note: There is no truth to the rumor that soon-to-be-defrocked Filipino-American Catholic priest, the Rev. Rodney Rodis, of Virginia, supposedly said: "I want to have a wife but whose wife it is, I do not know." Father Rodis is facing charges of embezzling more-than $600,000 from his parish and for actually maintaining a wife and children in another county in Virginia. There is also no truth to the rumor that when asked why he took a wife, Father Rodis said allegedly: "Virginia is for lovers."

And of course there is that South-African golfer, a winner of many P.G.A. tournaments, who said: "I was happily married for four months. But the problem was that the marriage lasted for two years."

And my friend, Natividad Caperiña-Francia, posted in Facebook today, July 7, 2013, some notes allegedly from The MARRIAGE DICTIONARY..

Husband: A man who has decided to give up privileges he never knew he had. A guy who controls the house and everyone in it, and is allowed by his wife to say so.

Wife: A partner who is always complaining that she doesn't have a thing to wear at the exact same time she complains about not having enough room in the closet.

Joint Checking Account: A great little device which allows a wife to beat a husband to the draw

Spouse: Someone who will protect you, help you and help you solve all the problems you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single

And finally, remember that joke posted by the www.mabuhayradio’s Jesse Jose in his column, "A Cup o’ Kapeng Barako"? Mr. Jose told of a bachelor who was diagnosed of suffering from malignant cancer. The physician told him that he had approximately six months to live. The patient asked the doctor what else he could do. The physician suggested that the patient get married to an ugly woman who is also a nagger. The patient asked if marrying that kind of a woman would cure him. The doctor said that the patient would still die but at least he would welcome an early death. (To read more of Jesse Jose’s Filipino jokes, please go to

As Ernie Delfin, Jesse Jose and the staff of www.mabuhayradio would like to say, "Smile and have a happy weekend . . ." # # #

As forwarded by Gil Vargas:

You have two choices in life:
You can stay single and be miserable,
or get married and wish you were dead.

At a cocktail party, one woman said to another,
'Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?'
'Yes, I am. I married the wrong man.' ;

A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds:
'Husband Wanted'.
Next day she received a hundred letters.
They all said the same thing:
'You can have mine.'




A woman is incomplete until she is married.
Then she is finished.

A little boy asked his father,
'Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?'
Father replied, 'I don't know son, I'm still paying.'

A young son asked,
'Is it true Dad, that in some parts of Africa
a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?'
Dad replied, 'That happens in every country, son.'

Then there was a woman who said,
'I never knew what real happiness was until I got married,
and by then, it was too late.'

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

If you want your spouse to listen and
pay strict attention to every word you say -- talk in your sleep.

Just think, if it weren't for marriage,

men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.

First guy says, 'My wife's an angel!'
Second guy remarks, 'You're lucky, mine's still alive.'


Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with their nine children. A blind man joins them after a few minutes. When the bus arrives, they find it overloaded and only the wife and the nine kids are able to fit onto the bus. So the husband and the blind man decide to walk.

After a while, the husband gets irritated by the ticking of the stick of the blind man as he taps it on the sidewalk, and says to him, 'Why don't you put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick? That ticking sound is driving me crazy.'

The blind man replies, 'If you had put a rubber at the end of YOUR stick, we'd be riding the bus, so shut up."
