Secrets to a Long Marriage
I got this from my wife. Think that means something?

With a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary at the church, the minister asked Brother Ralph to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he managed to live with the same woman all these years.
The husband shyly stood and turned to the audience: "Well, I treated her with respect, spent money on her, but mostly I took her traveling on special occasions."
The minister inquired, "Trips to where?"
"Well," the man says, "for our 25th anniversary, I took her to Beijing, China."
An appreciative murmer went up in the congregation.
The minister then said, "What a terrific example you are to all husbands, Ralph. Please tell the bretheren what you're going to do for your wife on your 50th anniversary?"
"Big plans!" he said with a smile. "I'm headin' back to Beijing to pick her up!"
