The Sharing of Marriage

Batch mates, a great love story that will tickle not only you funny bone but will also stir your being helplessly romantic :

The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink.
He unwrapped the plain hamburger and
carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.
He then carefully counted out the French
fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a
sip and then set the cup down between them . As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger,
the people around them were looking over and whispering.
Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor
old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.'

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple.
The old man said, they were just fine they were used to sharing everything..

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking
turns sipping the drink.
Again, the young man came over and begged
them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said " No thank you, we are used
used to sharing everything.'

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had
yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?'

She answered 'THE TEETH.’

I wonder if they share the toothbrush too, and if they take turns to be the first to eat.

Please pass the hat around. We should be able to collect enough money to help them buy another set of dentures. Poor poppets!

This story though sounds funny evokes compassion for the old couple!
A story of sincere acquiescence and true love!
