The Secret to long marriage
Beth Israel synagogue in New York provides marriage seminars: some are for women, some are for men and some for couples.
At the men’s seminar last week, the rabbi asked Shlomo about his marriage. Shlomo replied that he had been married for almost 50 years. The rabbi was impressed and asked him to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.
Shlomo replied to the assembled husbands, “Nu, I’ve tried to treat her nice, spend money on her, help her keep a Kosher home, and take her on trips. Best of all, I took her to Israel for our 25th anniversary!”
The rabbi responded, “Shlomo, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary?”
Shlomo proudly replied, "I'm going back to Israel to pick her up."
