Lighten up Mondays

An elderly man and his wife decided to separate.  Metal SunBefore being allowed to do so legally, the family court insisted they undergo some marriage counseling to see if their union could be saved.

The therapist did her best but to no avail.  The old folks were absolutely determined to go through with the separation leading to a divorce.

Finally, in desperation, the therapist said to the husband, “But you’re ninety-five and your wife is ninety-three.  You’ve been married for seventy-two years!  Why do you want to separate now?”

To which the wife replied, “We haven’t been able to stand each other for the last forty-six years.  We thought we should wait until all the children died before we split up.”
