Next time, I'm gonna marry for money

Hubs tells me his new favorite song is Trace Atkins' Marry for Money.

Ah, he's such a funny guy. He sang a few bars to me while working on some cabinets he's building for "our" craft room.

Next time, I'm gonna marry for money
I'll be so damn rich it ain't funnyI'm gonna have me a trust fund, yacht club, hot tub piece of the pie. . .
Find me a sweet sugar mama, with a whole lot of zeros and commas,
Don't really care if she loves me, she can even be uglyI'm gonna marry for money

That's Hubs. On our wedding day, the song he requested for our first dance was "To All The Girls I've Loved Before."

He's a charmer.

I can hardly believe that we'll be married 25 years in June. I don't feel that old! And it doesn't feel like over 25 years ago that we met on the company bowling league. I had the distinction of being the worst bowler in the league and he was the guy who collected a dime from anyone who didn't strike or spare in the 5th frame. Well, I never did, and considering there were three games each week for 52 weeks out of the year. . . we saw a lot of each other. And I lost a lot of dimes. Honestly, I never plotted to keep my average at a cool 92. Just so I could talk to the "dime guy." Maybe if he hadn't taken all my dimes, he would've married into money:)

I'll call her sweetheart & honey,
if she's a hundred and twenty
I dont care if she loves me,
she can be really ugly,
I'm gonna marry for money.
Oh, cha-ching, mucho deniro.

I think you married him for his money...all in newly acquired dimes.

Congrats to you both. You should be proud, I'm sure you are. Joe and I will have been married 14yrs on the 25th of this month. Oh crap, that is this weekend. I'm off to figure out what to get him!

fun to hear how you and your hubby met. was there an attraction from the very beginning? or did he grow on you... while he collected your dimes? =)

I have been bowling for over 50 years and still stink. Look what you have to aim for! It is truly amazing the things our beloved guys do. I guess what is even more amazing, we don't do physical harm to them. Enjoy your new cabinets.

Congrats on 25 years! I think I'll marry for money next time too although I may not be able to enjoy it if I get the chance. My hubby has longevity in his family so I'd be in my 90's probably. :) I've got 30 years with my hubby. Connie
