A young couple, madly in love, decided to get married.
But as the wedding day neared, both grew increasingly nervous over secret problems they had never shared with anyone.
Privately, the groom-to-be approached his minister.
“I’m really concerned about the secret I’ve kept from my fiance,” the young man said.
“I have unbelievably smelly feet.”
I’m afraid my new bride won’t be able to stand them.
“Oh, is that all?” the pastor replied.
“Look, all you need do is wash your feet twice a day and wear socks all the time.”
The groom thought it over and decided it might work.
Meanwhile, the nervous bride had approached the minister’s wife.
“I’m so worried,” she sobbed.
“I have really bad breath when I wake up each day. My morning breath is so awful, that my fiance won’t even want to be near me.
“Well, I have an idea,” the pastor’s wife said soothingly.
“Set your alarm just a few minutes before your husband wakes up.
Run to the bathroom, brush your teeth, and gargle with mouthwash before he gets out of bed. The key is not to say anything until you’ve taken care of your breath.”
The bride thought it over and decided it might work.
For several months after the wedding, the couple managed to keep their issues to themselves.
One morning, the husband awoke before dawn to find one of his socks had come off during the night.
Frantic, he searched the bed making lots of noise
His bride woke with a start and blurted out,
“What in the world are you doing?
“I was looking for my sock, the young man wailed,
“But it seems that you’ve swallowed it!”
