Once I asked my friend, "What is the secret behind your Happy Married Life?"
He said "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
I asked "Can you explain?"
He said "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my Wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."
Still not convinced, i asked him "Give me some examples".
He said "Smaller issues like, which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit the super market, when to go on vacation, which sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy.
Monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc. Are all decided by my wife. I just agree to it "
I asked "Then, what is your role?"
He said "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran, whether to widen the Sri Lankan economy, if Salman, Shahrukh and Amir Khan should do a movie together, when will the third world war happen, whether Mahendar Singh Dhoni should retire from Cricket etc etc. and do you know, my wife, NEVER, objects to any of these decisions".
