One evening, not long after the honeymoon had ended, John was out in the garage, welding some stuff for fun, which was something that he loved to do.
Denise, his new wife of just a few weeks, was standing there by the bench watching him with curiosity.
After a long period of silence she finally said, “Honey, I’ve just been thinking. Now that we are married, maybe it’s a good time to quit spending so much of your time out here in your garage. You probably ought to consider selling all your welding equipment, along with your gun collection and that stupid vintage Harley”.
John suddenly got a horrified look on his face.
Denise said, “Darling, what’s wrong?”
John replied, “For a minute there, you were starting to sound like my ex-wife”.
“Ex-wife?”, Denise replied, then as she realized the significance she screamed at him, “YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!”
John replied: “I wasn’t”.
And that’s where the fighting began and it all started to go downhill.
