There was a perfect man who met a perfect woman. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect. One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve this perfect couple was driving along a winding road when they noticed someone at the roadside in distress. Being the perfect couple, they stopped to help.
There stood Santa Claus with a huge bundle of toys. Not wanting to disappoint any children on the eve of Christmas, the perfect couple loaded Santa and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving along delivering the toys. Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and Santa Claus had an accident.
Only one of them survived the accident. Who was the survivor?
FEMALE ANSWER :The perfect woman. She’s the only one that really existed in the first place. Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus and there is no such thing as a perfect man.
MALE ANSWER: So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect woman must have been driving. This explains why there was a car accident.
This anonymously written anecdote (from http://www.naute.com/jokes/) entitled, “The Perfect Couple”, relates nowadays trend on engaging into a married life. Here comes the month of wedding. We all want aperfect proposal, a perfect gown, a perfect pair of shoes, a perfect reception, and a perfect wedding. The question is, is there really a perfect package? Why is it that most couple aims for a grand wedding? Before you answer that (yes I am referring to you, especially those who are already engaged), answer these questions first: Are you really happy and sure with your partner? Are you willing to wake up with him on the same bed all the days of your life? Even without these perfections, are you willing to accept each other’s imperfections for the rest of your life? It is a point of no turning back, so I guess we can proceed if your answer is yes.
Everything happens for a reason. You may just have a simple wedding, yet blessed with a perfectly matched partner. It all depends in your hands. Going back to the story, by the time that the male can answer that it was the woman who survived in the accident because he can sacrifice his life just for the woman to survive, at the same time, by the time the female answers that no one survived in the accident because she can’t live without the man, that’s the time that it can be called–PERFECT.
