There had been rumors running ramped around my home about remarrying my already wed wife. At first, I thought it was just plain silly since we are already husband and wife. Nevertheless, that left an opening for my mind to wonder.
Was I ready for marriage – again? She has five of my children, was I prepared for this daunting task? If I say no, would I be divorced? Or, would I still be married, but it will undoubtedly feel like divorce? Once I saw the ramifications of saying no, I realized I had better re-think my position.
I decided to tell her the truth. I would tell her that although I was hesitant, I had better go along with this charade or live a very lonely life. Here is how I broke the news to her, “Yes dear, this sounds like a terrifically romantic opportunity to renew our vows. It will be a sign of everlasting love and our incessant need for one another.” I hated to be so harsh, but she had it coming! LOL.
I realized that I would need to purchase a ring to seal the deal. On a fixed income, however, I would have to be thrifty. I looked up xtreme.deals and my prayers were answered. There were so many choices and so many deals, but I went with the 1.00 CTTW Diamond Band to compliment her original wedding ring – and she loved it.
It is normally $1,599, but I got it at a steal! Yes, I practically stole it for just$399.99. With that $1,200 saved, I could put it towards my daughter’s egregious college tuition. Alternatively, I could take my new bride/re-bride on a weekend getaway. Maybe I would get a new furniture set for her.
Yes, I bought that pool table I had wanted for so many years. I explained to my wife that during the daytime, it would make a great place to do that laundry stuff she does. Folding or organizing clothes, or whatever she does with it.
You know, at the days' end, I throw my soiled clothes in or within a 3-foot radius of the clothes hamper, and in a few days, there it is again neatly folded in my drawer. I wonder what goes on in between hamper and drawer. I guess I’ll never know…
