A young couple decided to get married. As the big day approached, they grew apprehensive. Each had a problem they had never before shared with anyone, not even with each other.
The groom-to-be, overcame his fear and asked his future father-in-law for advice. “Father,” he said, “I am deeply concerned about the success of my marriage. I love your daughter very much, but you see, I have very smelly feet, and I'm afraid that my future wife will be put off by them.”
“No problem,” said his father-in-law, “all you have to do is wash your feet as often as possible, and always wear socks, even to bed.” Well, to him this seemed a workable solution.
The bride-to-be, overcoming her fear, decided to take her problem up with her future mother-in-law.
“Mom,” she said, “When I wake up in the morning, my breath is truly awful.”
“Honey,” her mother consoled, “everyone has bad breath in the morning.” “No, you don’t understand. My morning breath is so bad, I’m afraid that my new husband will not want to sleep in the same room with me.” Her mother said simply, “Try this in the morning, get straight out of bed, and head for the bathroom and brush your teeth. The key is, not to say a word until you’ve brushed your teeth. Not a word,” her mother affirmed. Well, she thought it was certainly worth a try.
The loving couple was finally married in a beautiful ceremony. Not forgetting the advice each had received, he with his perpetual socks and she with her morning silence, they managed quite well. That is, until about six months later. Shortly before dawn, the husband wakes with a start to find that one of his socks had come off. Fearful of the consequences, he frantically searches the bed. This, of course, woke his wife and without thinking, she immediately asks, “What on earth are you doing?” “Oh, no!” he gasped in shock, “You’ve swallowed my sock!”
