A man was telling one of his friends the secret of his happy married life. “My wife makes all the small decisions,” he explained,“ and I make all the big ones, so we never quarrel about each other’s business and never get unhappy with each other. Our duties have been divided clearly. We have no arguments though it is a few years since we got married.”
"That sounds reasonable," answered his friend with great interest." And what sort of decisions does your wife make?" "Well," answered the man," she decides how much money our family needs, what food we eat, what sort of house we live in, what clothes we buy,what school our children go to,where we go for holidays and things like that." His friend was surprised. "Oh?" he said." And what important decisions do you consider then?" "Well," answered the man, "I decide who should be Prime Minister, whether we should increase our help to poor countries, when we should drop atom bombs and things like that."
