"Getting married is like burning down your house to get a piece of toast..."

"Getting married is like buying a full set of encyclopedias when you live right next door to the library..."

"The definition of 'bachelor': Somebody who never made the same mistake once..."

 

I was watching TV in the living room when the wife walked in and asked what was on the TV. I replied, "Dust."

 

And that's when the fight started.

THANKS EVERYBODY

 

Everything went off without a hitch. Well OK, there was one hitch: WAY more people showed up than we expected. There were enough seats in the church for the ceremony itself, but for the reception afterwards they had to break out a few extra tables and lots more chairs. Fortunately they had extra chairs in a storage room somewhere.

 

I appreciate everybody's good wishes. I'm a newlywed! Everybody who has known me for years is still deep in shock. The famously confirmed bachelor got married????? Did Hell finally freeze over? Are pigs flying?

 

The one drawback - I'm gonna hafta give up all my "marriage" jokes that I've included in my onstage routine for years, LOL. Things like:

 

"Getting married is like burning down your house to get a piece of toast..."

"Getting married is like buying a full set of encyclopedias when you live right next door to the library..."

"The definition of 'bachelor': Somebody who never made the same mistake once..."

 

And so forth, LOL. Hafta stop using those jokes from now on.

 

We figured after living together for 19 years anyway, it was about time to make it official.

 

Thanks again, all.

 

:)

 

Like hell you need to give up the jokes. Because that's what they are, jokes, not to be taken seriously.

 

Also, you will have a feeling come over you(if it hasn't already) a feeling of becoming whole, a feeling that you where missing something and didn't even realize it, until know. A feeling that a part of you, your sole is know complete and at peace. People will say that when you have lived together for umpteen years things won't change much, well, I disagree. As having known people who lived together for quite some time before getting married, I think this isn't exactly true. I noticed this with one of my brothers who had been with his lady for about 19 or 20 years when they finally got married. He was never an uptight person to begin with, but it just seemed he had a much more calm and relaxed demeanor.

 

Again, congrats.

Why give up the jokes? Remember Henny Youngman?

Or Rodney Dangerfield, but I think Rodney meant it...

 

Edit: guess I should read entire threads... :D

I shared those jokes with the president of my company today. He's 46 and getting married for the first time in about a month. Needless to say he liked them. Thank you!

Once again, I really appreciate all the comments/posts/well-wishes/etc. I intended to come back here and answer each one individually, expecting maybe 10 or 15 responses, tops. But there's almost 60 posts!! I'm sorry but I just haven't got that kinda time, especially since the wife is gonna wake up soon, and we'll no doubt.......well.......You know......

Hello. I am just relaying a congratulations from Censport. He's not on RN any longer, but he is on facebook and wanted to say:

 

 

I know he's not on FB, so would somebody please tell "Monty" congratulations for me.

I am late to the party here, but few things get me back on RN these days.

 

Congratulations, sir. And best wishes to your lovely bride. I hope the coming years are happier than you may have imagined them to be.

Okay, I’ll bite.

 

“Congratulations Monty!”

 

How did I do? If that was okay can you tell that Censport to get his sorry ass back on RN? We miss him.

What a great bunch. I mean that. It took me quite a while just to compile this list and make sure it's complete, LOL. I really wish I had time to respond to each post. For just a couple examples: Ilja - Rochelle & I were singing "Goin' To The Chapel" to each other all the way to the church, so it was an amusing coincidence that you posted it. And Jerry - you gave me a (lightedhearted) hard time because you weren't invited, but we thought you were in France!

 

And so on. You each deserve a personal response, but that'd take days!

 

Thanks everybody. We really mean that.

Don't forget those beloved you and your wife have lost over the years. They are smiling down and giving you eternal blessings from above as well my friend. Although they are not with you two in body, they are with you two in spirit.

 

They are always with us all as well, every step of the way.

I'm getting married.

We're leaving for the church in one hour, so I'm getting offline to go get ready. Next time I'm here I'll be a newlywed.

 

:woohoo: :party: :chili: :woohoo: :banana: :party: :woohoo:

 

Had to pop in to help celebrate. Congratulations, dear Monty! Best wishes to you and the Missus!! :)
