This old couple one day decided to go to a lawyer to get a divorce. The lawyer was a bit surprised because not every day you see 70 years old people get divorced. After he heard their story it all become clear to him.
The story was that their marriage was far from happy. They were together only because of their children because they were afraid if they got divorced earlier that might get a negative effect on the children. Now that all their children are well grown up and have their own families, they decided it is time to end that unhappy marriage.
Even though the lawyer heard their story he still could not understand why they would want a divorce at the age of 70.
When the couple was signing the papers the wife commented that she loves her husband, but she just can’t handle that marriage any longer. The husband said that he totally understands her and that everything is going to be OK. The lawyer heard all this and he suggested a dinner for the three of them to which the they both agreed. The dinner was a bit weird and silent, but when the dish came the husband immediately took the drumstick from the roasted chicken and get it to, now, his ex-wife because it was her favorite part.
This, to the lawyer, seemed like a chance for those two to get back together, but he was not right. The woman got mad at this because she thought that her ex-husband never took into consideration her wishes and that she actually hates drumsticks. Their relationship seemed very weird, they loved each other and yet they do the wrong things to each other.
The night after that meal both the man and the woman were not able to sleep. After long thinking and turning in the bad the man decides that he actually still loves his wife and he started calling her to tell her that he loves her.
The wife was still in disbelieve that after so many years together with her husband, he still did not know that she hated drumsticks. While the phone was ringing she refused to answer because she was the one who asked for all this and she did not want to look weak. She even pulled out the cord of the phone, but she forgot that her husband had heart problems and that he might need her.
The very next day he passed away and when she went to see him, he still had the phone in his hands.
She had to clear the entire apartment and while she was doing that she found her ex-husband’s insurance policy which had the exact date as the one their wedding was and the beneficiary of the policy was her. Through the files, there also was a note and it was addressed to her. He wrote that if she was reading that, then probably he is dead and the policy is for her. There were 100k dollars on the policy with which he hoped that he could continue the promise he gave her when they got married. He said that that money will take care of her even when he is no longer around and also that he loves her a lot.
Naturally, she burst into tears.
People should always share their feelings because one day it might be too late. Never forget to tell someone how much you appreciate them because tomorrow they might be gone forever.
