The Mysterious Closet Of The Husband
A man asks his fiancé to get married… She happily accepts his proposal, but he sets out a clear condition if they’re to marry.
“I have a closet at the end of the hall, and I keep it locked. That is my personal space and I don’t want anyone, including my wife, to ever enter. Can you agree to that?”
She thinks his request a bit strange, but she loves him dearly so she accepts.
After 10 years of happy marriage, curiosity eventually gets the best of her. One day, while her husband is at work, she decides to learn what the mystery is all about.
She picks the lock on the closet door, ready to discover something weird and beyond her expectations… But all she finds is a box with 2 beer bottles and $100 in cash.
That’s odd, she thinks. Why on Earth would he hide a few bottles and some cash from me for 10 years?
She knows she should keep her prying a secret — but her curiosity, instead of being satisfied, is now peaking.
When the husband returns home, she sits him down at the kitchen table to confront him.
“Honey, I have a confession. I know there was only one condition in our marriage, but today I looked in the closet. I hope you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me.”
The husband grows visibly frustrated but says nothing.
“I don’t understand what I found,” the wife continues. “Two beer bottles and $100 cash. Why would you hide something like that from me?”
The husband shifts in his chair and reluctantly comes clean.
“I’ll be honest, and hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me,” he says. “Everytime I cheated during our marriage, I put an empty bottle in the closet.”
The wife is shocked to learn her husband had been unfaithful. But she considers it, and decides twice in 10 years is forgivable.
“Darling, I love you with all my heart. If you promise to stay faithful to me from this point on, I’ll forgive you and we can move past this. But where did the $100 come from?”
The husband takes a deep breath and says, ‘’Bottle exchange’
