If You Ever Intend to Marry…

I think I am the only person at the place where I am employed who is not married. My employer recently spoke to me about getting married. “If you ever come to me and tell me you are getting married,” he said, “I’ll knee you in your nuts and steal your wallet.” He continued, “The next day, I’ll knee you in your nuts and steal your wallet again.” “After about a week of this, you’ll decide that maybe you don’t want to get married. That’s what it’s like being married.” I think he and his wife had some issues regarding their finances.


  • That's hilarious. Funny how people betray what's going on in their lives through insignificant conversations like that one.

    Communication! That's what I say. If you marry the right girl and communicate well, you'll get through the hard times just fine.

  • Boy, that guy sounds like a butthead. Perhaps he should have skipped the marriage part ...

  • WOW. glad I'm not that guy. But I believe your (future) wife would love you, matthew. I'm pretty sure you'd cook for her!

  • Ashley, are females impressed by a guy who knows his way around a kitchen?

  • They're having some issues about finances...and testicles, apparently.

  • You know what they say: the way to a girl's heart is through her stomach. I think you have this one covered, Matt.

  • My employer was not serious when he made these statements. He has a good sense of humor, and he was expressing his perception of the current state of his marriage. He and his wife did have an issue regarding the finances; it's actually rather amusing, if it is not happening to oneself, but to someone else.

  • Matthew,
    I have heard similar words from friends of mine, some who later divorced. People ask me why I'm not married. I always reply, "Because I've been paying attention."

    Love the wallet analogy. LOL

  • I will answer for the other Ashley. Yes, Thomas, a man who is good in the kitchen is an excellent quality. I have a lot of great things going on at home, but I don't have a man who will do anything more than mix a drink. And that's in the bar, not the kitchen. Oh, I am starting to feel the emptiness! Perhaps I should embark on an extramarital, culinary-based affair with Matthew?

  • Maybe you should go around with your hat tomorrow see if you can raise some money for your boss?
