A woman woke in the middle of
the night to find her husband missing from their bed. In the stillness of the
house, she could hear a muffled sound downstairs.
She went downstairs and looked all around, still not finding her husband.
Listening again, she could definitely hear moaning. She went down to the
basement to find her husband, crouched in the corner facing the wall, sobbing.
"What's wrong with you?" she asked him.
"Remember when your father caught us fooling around when you were 16?" he
replied. "And remember, he said, I had two choices: I could either marry you,
or spend the next 20 years in prison."
Baffled, she said, "yes, I remember. So?"
"Well...I would have gotten out today!"
