A married couple never fought, not even once in 25 years of marriage. A friend of the couple asked, “How is that even possible?” The husband replied, well we went to a ranch for our honeymoon. While horse riding, my wife fell off. She got up and patted the horse and said, “This is your first time.” After a while it happened again and she said, “This is your second time” and when it happened the third time, she pulled out a gun and shot the horse. I shouted at her “Are you CRAZY?! You killed the horse!!” She gave me a look and said, “This is your first time.”
