“Yes, Dear,” should be taught in marriage school. Fathers should raise their sons knowing how to say those two simple words. If a marriage is going to last, it’s going to take a little finesse and understanding. “Yes, Dear,” will get him through those times when he is dumbfounded with nothing else to say, those times when he thought he was right but clearly he was not because she told him he wasn’t.
When a wife and husband walk into a courtroom together, there is no idea what’s about to go down. Judge Frank Caprio who has become an internet star for the things that have happened in his courtroom is presiding. He has no idea what’s about to go down either.
It appears that the wife got a ticket for going through a red light. The only problem is she wasn’t the one driving. When she got the ticket in the mail, she asked her husband what it was about. He told her to just pay it and not to worry about it, but she wasn’t trying to hear that.
She dragged her husband into the courtroom and the first thing that came out of her mouth was the fact that she got the ticket in her name, but she wasn’t driving. What happens next is a hilarious courtroom conversation between a judge and a defendant with the husband standing next to her saying the only thing he knows best to say, “Yes, Dear.”
Sometimes, it’s hard to say. Sometimes, it forces a man to push everything down to deal with internally. But this couple has been happily married for 43 years. They have something going for them. And as Judge Frank Caprio said, he’s been happily married for 5 years. He’s actually been married for 50 years, but he’s been happily married for 5.
