Proof that men do remember

Proof That Men Do Remember

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed.

She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds
him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him.
He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She
watches as he wiped a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.

‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she steps into the room,
‘Why are you down here at this time of night’?

The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘It’s the 20th Anniversary of the
day we met’.

She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.

The husband continues, ‘Do you remember 20 years ago when we started
dating? I was 18 and you were only 16,’ he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is
so caring and sensitive. ‘Yes, I do’ she replies.

The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily. ‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?’

‘Yes, I remember’ said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continued. 'Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, ‘Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years?’

‘I remember that, too’ she replied softly.

He wiped another tear from his cheek and said ‘I would have gotten out

So girls remember that men do remember :rolleyes:

Hahaha, this is so wonderful!! I don’t know why I laughed (perhaps the shotgun part), just that it’s true, we women know that men remember! :slight_smile:

My boyfriend is one of the wonderful men who remembers things :slight_smile: And if he doesn’t he’s straightforward about it, and how could I get mad? I forget a lot of things, too! :smiley:
(He still can’t remember my cell phone number, and neither I his, so that’s why I have him on speed dial :smiley: )

Any other wonderful proofs that men do remember? :slight_smile:


Sounds like something my DH would say! :smiley:

The anecdote was funny, yes.

The day I met my wife I saved the page from Living Waters daily devotional, put the date on it and tucked it away in the Bible I take to work everyday. It is a reflection of 1 Cor 13:4ff.

Yes, I do tear up when I think about that day (married 16 years) but always in a positive way.


That was ridiculous. Why do women insist upon propagating sexist myths? My mother forgot my parent’s wedding anniversary a few times, but I’m sure that women everywhere would be burning bras if my father complained about it.

I think it was meant in a light hearted way.:shrug:
