Once someone asked me,
"What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
I said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then there will be absolutely no problems."
The person asked, "Can you explain?"
I said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."
Still not convinced, the person asked me "Give me some examples"
I said, " Smaller issues like! which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"
The person asked, "Then what is your role?"
I said, "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like, whether Musharraff should stay in the power or not, whether America should attack Iran, whether Britain should lift sanctions over Zimbabwe, whether to widen the African economy, whether Shahid Afridi should retire etc etc.
And, would you believe, my wife NEVER objects to any of my decisions".
