RECIPE FOR A HAPPY MARRIAGE 1 cup of consideration

2 cupfuls praise

1 reasonable budget

2 cupfuls of flattery carefully concealed

2 cupfuls milk of human kindness

1 gallon faith in God and each other

A generous dash of cooperation

3 teaspoons of pure extract of “I am sorry”

Children (more or less, to taste)

1 cup of confidence and encouragement

1 large or several small hobbies

1 cup of blindness to each others faults

1 cup of courtesy

1 small pinch of in-laws

1 cup of contentment


Flavor with frequent portions of recreation and a dash of happy memories. Stir well and remove any specks of jealousy, temper, or criticism. Sweeten well with generous portions of love and keep warm with a steady flame of devotion. Never serve with a cold shoulder or a hot tongue.
